|Description|| In 1999 West Nile virus (WNV) was first detected in North America in the New York City area and within a decade had spread throughout North America and the Caribbean, causing annual seasonal outbreaks after introduction; this is in stark contrast to other Flaviviruses and arthropod-borne viruses which exist largely in endemic regions and exhibit sporadic outbreaks.
