Who can get the virus?
Anybody can become infected with WNV, so it’s important to protect yourself from mosquito bites. People over the age of 50 and/or with chronic diseases, such as heart disease or cancer, may be more at risk for serious illness. Most human cases occur in the late summer or early fall.
