The virus penetrated deep into the state by October of this <br />year. Oregon and Idaho's experience with WNV in recent years was to see a late season <br />surge in bird and animal cases followed by an increase in human cases the next year. <br />Washington's late season detection of WNV in the state could be a harbinger for <br />increased human cases in 2007. <br />
