West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus was first isolated from a patient in the West Nile district of Uganda in 1937. Several outbreaks of WNV occurred in the Mediterranean Basin (an area stretching from Portugal to Jordan and Italy to Cape Verde) in the 1950s and 1960s. The United States' first WNV cases occurred in New York in 1999. North Dakota's first case occurred in August, 2002.
