West Nile Virus is currently affecting human and animal life in North America. This Virus has been a popular topic among researchers, health professionals, and state health departments because of its rapid emergence as a threat to human and animal populations. In this article, I will be discussing the symptomology associated with West Nile Virus and the disease's pattern of transmission. Furthermore, I will describe procedures for diagnosing and treating West Nile Virus and minimizing its future spread into human populations. I will conclude this article by predicting how the West Nile Virus will impact South Dakotans in 2004.
