West Nile Virus History

   What is West Nile Virus, where did it come from, and what can we do to stop it?  West Nile Virus first appeared in New York City in 1999 but the source of this crippling disease was never identified.  The first known case of West Nile Virus recorded in modern times occurred in 1937 in the country of Uganda, the source of the Nile.  Some cases were documented in Israel in 1957, France in the 1960's, South Africa in 1974, Romania in 1996, and Russia in 1999.  The 1999 West Nile Virus epidemic recorded in New York City affected 62 people and resulted in 7 deaths.

   West Nile Virus often leaves its victims with permanent neurological damage.  Its sister diseases, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Fever, and La Cross Encephalitis, spread across the United States for many decades.  These deadly epidemics of Encephalitis, or brain fever, could have been avoided if doctors had identified the original host animal for this disease and became aware of the set of conditions in the animal world that fostered this epidemic.  It seems we are now in the same position as our ancestors in Europe in 1350 AD who were unaware that unsanitary conditions in their cities were responsible for an overpopulation of rats which in turn fostered an outbreak of Bubonic (rat) plague that wiped out a third of the human population.

   In spite of the fact that we now live in the 21st century with all it's medical miracles, our medical professionals still have not identified the original host animal for West Nile Virus.  They also don't recognize the vital role that disease mechanisms play in God's natural system.  If you would like to learn how this West Nile Virus epidemic actually began, and how easily it could have been prevented, please click on the link below to order a copy of Edward Oliver's 350-page book, "Prophets and Frauds" to examine the situation that was allowed to develop in the animal world, which ultimately produced this epidemic of West Nile Virus.
