As of 28 June, EU Member States and neighbouring countries have not reported any human cases of West Nile fever for the 2012 transmission season, states this week’s update of West Nile fever maps.
Every Friday ECDC publishes on its website the West Nile fever maps, the information being based on cases reported up to the Thursday of each week:
- Map with the present geographical distribution of the reported autochthonous human cases
- Map comparing the present geographical distribution to data from previous years
- Situation update and a table on the number of cases according to countries and areas
With the West Nile fever maps, ECDC aims to inform the competent authorities responsible for blood safety of areas with ongoing transmission of West Nile virus to humans in order to support their implementation of blood safety legislation.
