The virus, which can cause this encephalitis, is transmitted by infected mosquitoes, mainly Culex pipiens. Mosquitoes become infected after taking blood from an infected bird, the natural host of this virus. The infected mosquito can then transmit the virus to humans and animals while it takes blood from them. All residents living in areas where West Nile virus at least once a week.)
