Eastern equine encephalitis is a disease caused by the transmission of a virus from infected mosquitoes that can cause the brain to become inflamed. The mosquito-spreading viruses are called arboviruses. This virus is present in the eastern part of the country, including the Great Lakes and the Gulf Coast. It's also seen sometimes in Canada; in 2016, at least one human case was recorded in Ontario.
