This article seems very incomplete. Shouldn't it mention early symptoms (Flu-like symptoms, sore neck) and what it does(swelling of the brain) and should mention the fact that it is untreatable.i agree.this article has no symptom,diagnosis,treatment,or prognosis section.126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:46, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
"After inoculation by stupid the vector, the virus travels via lymphatics to lymph nodes and replicates in macrophages and neutrophils, resulting in lymphopenia, leukopenia and fever. Subsequent replication occur in other organs leading to viremia"
30% of infected?
This seems wrong. A simple trot to the cdc website says only 4% of humans infected actually present with symptoms, and only a third of those have brain damage, and only 6 present with symptoms each year in the US. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:52, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
30% of infected
It seems correct to me. This CDC web page: http://www.cdc.gov/EasternEquineEncephalitis/tech/factSheet.html states: "Mortality rate: Approximately a third of those who develop EEE die. Many of those who survive will have mild to severe permanent neurologic damage. Many patients with severe sequelae die within a few years." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:42, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
