West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus is a public health issue and addressing it is the responsibility of the local Medical Officer of Health. At the present time the risk of catching the disease or becoming very ill as a result of it appear to be minimal. Influenza (the flu), air pollution and motor vehicle collisions present much greater risks.
