PostSubject: Continental mosquito breeding in UK after 60 year absence    Fri Feb 10, 2012 8:30 am

Was looking for something else but I imagine this is a story which will excite the media.
http://www.ceh.ac.uk/news/news_archive/vector-potential-mosquito-UK_2012_11.html

All you have to do is selectively quote these 2 sentences:
Quote :
Populations of the mosquito, found across mainland Europe and known only by its Latin name Culex modestus, were recorded at sites in the marshes of north Kent and south Essex in 2010 and 2011.

Culex modestus is suspected to transmit West Nile virus (WNV) to humans during sporadic epidemics in southern Europe.
and leave out this information:
Quote :
However, to date, WNV has never been found in the UK so there is no known current risk to humans living here. The virus primarily infects birds, but when the pathogen is transmitted from birds to humans by the bite of a mosquito it can very occasionally cause severe disease, although it usually causes only asymptomatic or mild infections.
and you have it.

Or even, change the last part to "and sometimes kills"!
