According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 80 percent of the people who become infected don't have symptoms, but some develop flu-like symptoms, which can last for weeks or even months.

WNV and EEE are arboviruses that are transmitted from the bite of an infected mosquito. "The best defence against the virus is personal protection".
