This virus is carried by mosquitoes. There are already cases of the disease in Seville and Modena.

Tourists in Spain and Italy have been urged to be careful due to the discovery of the first West Nile fever infection in these countries this year. In some cases, it can be fatal.

The Manchester Evening News writes about this.

As noted, this virus is carried by mosquitoes. There are already cases of the disease in Seville, Spain, and Modena, Italy. The West Nile virus has also been detected in mosquitoes in the Italian province of Chieti.

For its part, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control issued a warning that the cases in question were local, and not brought to Europe from the tropics.

Sick people experience, in particular, a fever, body pain, rash, and vomiting. In severe cases, symptoms such as convulsions, muscle weakness and paralysis are observed.

Last year, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, 713 local cases of West Nile virus infection were recorded in Europe, including 67 deaths. The virus was detected in nine countries, while it also spread to 22 new regions where it had not previously been found.

Recall that the unobvious benefit of eating capelin has been revealed – this small fish is sometimes better than red.
