West Nile Virus In Oregon
70 percent of people who become infected with West Nile Virus show no symptoms. That's the good news.
The bad news is that the people who do show symptoms can become very sick and take weeks to recover... and some can develop complications that lead to death.
West Nile is present in Oregon once again this year, though not in great numbers. Oregon Public Health helps us understand the risks and preventive measures.
