New Jersey Department Of Health & Senior Services
West Nile Virus Human Testing 2000

November 22, 2000

The Department of Health is testing people meeting criteria established collegially with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Those criteria include testing blood and/or spinal fluid samples from people with a fever greater than 100 degrees and with altered mental status and with elevated levels of protein in their spinal fluid and/or with muscle weakness. Together, these symptoms are compatible with encephalitis, which can be caused by a number of viruses, including West Nile. Only a West Nile test can confirm or rule out West Nile virus infection. One should not assume that just because someone is being tested for West Nile they have the virus.
