The VectorNet maps are published regularly on the website to provide the ECDC stakeholders and the general public with the most up-to-date information on vector distribution. During the transmission season, ECDC publishes updates on the spatial distribution of human cases of West Nile fever in the European Union and neighbouring countries in its online atlas.
