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
