ENCEPHALITIS MOSQUITO
Encephalitis is a virus of which there is no known cure. It can cause flu like symptoms, brain swelling, coma, even death. It is carried by mosquitoes and is usually associated with the continents of Africa and Asia. In 1997 however there was an outbreak in Florida. Residents and visitors to Disney Land were given Skeeter warnings, which advised them to stay indoors from dusk till dawn or wear long sleeves and apply plenty of insect repellent. The one case of encephalitis found in California this summer was said to have come from a mosquito that hitched a ride on a plane from Florida. Flocks of public-health-department chickens are being exposed to mosquitoes and then are being tested for blood born diseases. How about Chicken Revenge?!!!
