Japanese encephalitis

The Bluegrass Digest reported that Japanese encephalitis is a mosquito borne virus and is spreading across the southern hemisphere.  It is spreading from temperate and tropical Asia to Australia, Indonesia, New Guinea, and Pakistan.  The digest stated that it affects humans, horses, and birds and it is spreading rapidly.  Cross your fingers and hope it doesn't make it to the Northern Hemisphere.
