Geographic coordinates of each CSO facility and associated streams and data on mosquito abundance and WNV infections in humans, mosquitoes, and bird carcasses from October 2001 through December 2007 were provided by the state of Georgia and the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness (FCDHW).
Every year, mosquito sampling was performed biweekly from 1 May through 31 October by FCDHW staff.
The declining temporal trend in WNV-positive corvid death ratios (from 28.0 per 100,000 persons in 2002 to 0.00 per 100,000 in 2006; Table 1) is most likely explained by the decreasing number of dead birds submitted by Atlanta residents to the FCDHW. Of the 50 confirmed cases among Fulton Country residents in 2001-2007, 26 (52%) had symptoms of neuroinvasive WNV.
