West Nile Virus is a flavivirus transmitted by mosquitoes after feeding on infected birds. In severe cases, WNV can induce encephalitis and cause the death of its human host. While it may have started on the West Nile (how can they tell it wasn't the East?), it's now a permanently established resident of the Western Hemisphere.

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design, which reads:

"West Nile virus is a flavivirus transmitted by mosquitoes after feeding on infected birds. In severe cases, WNV can induce encephalitis and cause death of its human host. The continued expansion of West Nile virus in the U.S. indicates that it is now permanently established in the Western Hemisphere."
