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.

Available image[edit]

Once this article is expanded some, here is a source for a public domain image of histology of the encephalitis caused by EEE [1]. -Joelmills 02:47, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

And another one of an affected hen [2]. --Joelmills 19:48, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

under Presentation,

"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?[edit]

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. (talk) 23:52, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

30% of infected[edit]

It seems correct to me. This CDC web page: 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 (talk) 20:42, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

List of towns with confirmed mosquitos[edit]

This is valuable. There are only a couple arbitrarily chosen towns in this article now. I'm not sure whether we can pull the table directly. Risc64 (talk) 01:24, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
