What is the risk of someone becoming infected with the West Nile virus?
The risk is very low. Even in areas where the virus is circulating, very few mosquitoes are infected with the virus. Even if a mosquito is infected, less than 1% of people who are bitten and become infected will get severely ill. The chances you will become severely ill from any one mosquito bite are extremely small.

If you have questions, please visit the Texas Department of State Health Services or contact Health & Food Safety.
