Special joint podcast episode with the MedicCast and This Week in Virology


What is it about West Nile virus that has everybody talking? Do the number of infections and deaths from WNV this year make sense? Is this hype or example of emerging infectious disease threats to come?

In this episode:
  • Where did WNV come from?
