    bullet point  West Nile Virus NS2bNS3 PMLSC APAC Document
     
     
    West Nile virus, a member of the Flaviviridae family, was first isolated in 1937 in the West Nile district of Uganda. West Nile virus is transmitted to animals including humans, through mosquito bites. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. In 2003, West Nile virus was detected in as many as 46 of the United States. The virus infected as many as 10,000 people and was the cause of approximately 300 deaths. The data for 2004 are even more troubling because the virus has spread and intensified throughout the US. West Nile virus is also a potential bioterrorism weapon. West Nile virus, Dengue and Yellow Fever flaviviruses are Priority Pathogens according to the classification issued by the NIAID.
