Human and equine West Nile fever cases in Europe and the Mediterranean, 2017 transmission season
During the West Nile virus transmission season (June to November), ECDC publishes weekly epidemiological updates on human West Nile fever cases occurring in the European Union and the neighbouring countries. The updates are available via the Surveillance Atlas of Infectious Diseases. This year, for the first time, ECDC included equine West Nile fever cases in its epidemiological updates. During the 2017 transmission season, 204 human cases and 127 equine cases were reported in the European Union.
