West Nile Virus is a disease that is just beginning to jump into the human barrier. In 2002-2003 there was an epidemic of WNV among humans where the majority of cases were in the Mid-West United States. With the hurricanes that occured in 2005 led to a rise of WNV cases in that particular area due to the mosquitoes having a habitat that they were able to easily reproduce in with little competition.
