A Little Insect Can Cause A Lot Of Harm

Mosquito on hand
John Langley was living a normal life just outside of Dallas, Texas last year, until disaster struck.  He began to not feel well, then suddenly one morning his temperature soared and his body began to cramp up.  His wife rushed him to the hospital and they found out what was wrong:  Langley had been infected with the West Nile virus.  After being in a medically induced coma for a month, Langley finally woke up and found that he was paralyzed from his neck down and needed a respirator to help him breathe.  Today, he can breathe on his own again, but he's working on getting his other muscles back in gear since the disease made his muscles so weak.  He used to be able to do handy work around the house, but now he has troubles just flexing his fingers every day, and this is all because of one tiny little insect: The mosquito.

West Nile virus is something we should not take lightly.  Although most people do not show symptoms when they are diagnosed with West Nile, some people will show symptoms and it's important to get help as soon as you see the symptoms, before any worse damage can happen.  In 2012, the West Nile virus was the worst we had seen since it has been introduced to the United States.  Read more about the story here.
