Overview

The summer of 2012 may go down in record or be remembered as the United States worst outbreak of the West Nile virus ever. Health experts have said that with record number of new cases, 1200, that measures need to be taken to reduce the transmission to humans. Included in the 1200 that have become infected, nearly 50 people have died. Texas has been particularly devastated by the West Nile virus, but reported cases have documented in 47 out of the 50 states and by the time that you read this that number probably will have jumped to 48. The only 3 states that haven’t officially documented a human case of the West Nile virus are Oregon, Alaska, and Hawaii.

The only known culprit to spread West Nile to the human population is the mosquito and the mosquito’s life cycle peaks in the second week of August. Health care experts and medical professionals expect the number of cases to increase insurmountably in the next few weeks, as the West Nile virus takes nearly 14 days (from being infected) to properly be diagnosed. The entire health care industry expects the month of September to prove the dangerous and deadly effects that the West Nile virus can take toll.
