      The Bubonic plague or “Black death” is an awesome one to learn about! It wiped out (killed) 1/3 of Europe! Can you say, population control? 😀

    I chose West Nile virus because I haven’t heard of it!

    West Nile virus (WNV) is a virus of the family Flaviviridae. Part of the Japanese encephalitis (JE) antigenic complex of viruses, it is found in both tropical and temperate regions.

    The West Nile Virus produces one of three different outcomes in humans. The first is an asymptomatic infection; the second is a mild febrile syndrome termed West Nile Fever; the third is a neuroinvasive disease termed West Nile meningitis or encephalitis. The population proportion of these three states is roughly 110:30:1.

    Approximately 90% of West Nile Virus infections in humans are without any symptoms.
