Description
 
Janet Heinrich (au). In the fall of 1999 the mosquito-borne West Nile virus killed 7 people in the New York City area & made dozens more very sick. It was initially misidentified as a different, related mosquito-borne virus often found in the U.S. The outbreak serves as a source of lessons about how public health officials can be better prepared in responding to potential crises involving uncertain causes, & how they can detect & respond to an act of biological terrorism. This report reviews the West Nile virus outbreak & the response to it, focusing on establishing a chronological account of the events that occurred; & identifying lessons learned for public health & bioterrorism preparedness. Charts & tables.
