Estimating the infection rate of West Nile virus in Alberta

Description

This report presents the results from the West Nile virus (WNv) Seroprevalence Study, undertaken by Alberta Health and Wellness during March through June 2004. During 2003, there were 275 confirmed human cases of WNv in Alberta. For every clinical infection there are likely many more undetected infections in humans since the majority of WNv infections have no symptoms. The study was conducted to estimate how many Albertans had actually been infected with the virus. The study also investigated the knowledge and attitudes of Albertans about WNv and about measures used to protect against infection.
