PLOS 07/01/21 Predicting the spatio-temporal spread of West Nile virus in Europe. Abstract West Nile virus is a widely spread arthropod-born virus, which has mosquitoes as vectors and birds as reservoirs.
Humans, as dead-end hosts of the virus, may suffer West Nile Fever (WNF), which sometimes leads to death. In Europe, the first large-scale epidemic of WNF occurred in 1996 in Romania. Since then, human cases have increased in the continent, where the highest number of cases occurred in 2018. Using the location of WNF cases in 2017 and favorability models, we developed two risk models, one environmental and the other spatio-environmental, and tested their capacity to predict in 2018: 1) the location of WNF; 2) the intensity of the outbreaks (i.e. the number of confirmed human cases); and 3) the imminence of the cases (i.e. the Julian week in which the first case occurred).

PLOS 12/10/17 Geographic variations of the bird-borne structural risk of West Nile virus circulation in Europe. Abstract The structural risk of West Nile Disease results from the usual functioning of the socio-ecological system, which may favour the introduction of the pathogen, its circulation and the occurrence of disease cases.
Its geographic variations result from the local interactions between three components: (i) reservoir hosts, (ii) vectors, both characterized by their diversity, abundance and competence, (iii) and the socio-economic context that impacts the exposure of human to infectious bites. We developed a model of bird-borne structural risk of West Nile Virus (WNV) circulation in Europe, and analysed the association between the geographic variations of this risk and the occurrence of WND human cases between 2002 and 2014. A meta-analysis of WNV serosurveys conducted in wild bird populations was performed to elaborate a model of WNV seropositivity in European bird species, considered a proxy for bird exposure to WNV. PLOS 15/09/17 Improved reliability of serological tools for the diagnosis of West Nile fever in horses within Europe.
Abstract West Nile Fever is a zoonotic disease caused by a mosquito-borne flavivirus, WNV.
By its clinical sensitivity to the disease, the horse is a useful sentinel of infection. Because of the virus’ low-level, short-term viraemia in horses, the primary tools used to diagnose WNV are serological tests. Inter-laboratory proficiency tests (ILPTs) were held in 2010 and 2013 to evaluate WNV serological diagnostic tools suited for the European network of National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for equine diseases.
These ILPTs were designed to evaluate the laboratories’ and methods’ performances in detecting WNV infection in horses through serology. Author summary.

Some of these human cases have been reported in the plain territories of Bologna, Modena and Reggio Emilia provinces: three cases in 2009 (lineage 1), 14 cases in 2013 (lineage 2) and 4 cases in 2014 (lineage 2). The plain territories of Bologna, Modena and Reggio Emilia provinces are essentially rural, with a few urban localities (Fig. 1a). The study site considered in the present study covers about 500 km2 with a human population of about 2.2 million residents.
The main Culex mosquito breeding sites are irrigation canals and ditches. France: natural wetland of southern Camargue in the Rhône Delta.
PLOS 24/03/15 Identifying the Environmental Conditions Favouring West Nile Virus Outbreaks in Europe. Abstract West Nile Virus (WNV) is a globally important mosquito borne virus, with significant implications for human and animal health.
The emergence and spread of new lineages, and increased pathogenicity, is the cause of escalating public health concern. Pinpointing the environmental conditions that favour WNV circulation and transmission to humans is challenging, due both to the complexity of its biological cycle, and the under-diagnosis and reporting of epidemiological data. Here, we used remote sensing and GIS to enable collation of multiple types of environmental data over a continental spatial scale, in order to model annual West Nile Fever (WNF) incidence across Europe and neighbouring countries.
Multi-model selection and inference were used to gain a consensus from multiple linear mixed models. Int. J. Environ. Res.
