Japanese encephalitis is a viral infection contracted from a mosquito bite. The virus completes its life cycle in pigs and birds and is passed to mosquitoes which then bite humans. Symptoms include flu-like signs and are generally short-lived. However, there are some cases where the virus can spread to the nervous system and cause severe symptoms such as confusion, inability to speak, seizures and the inability to move body parts. People that are at risk for developing Japanese encephalitis are those working in rural areas in parts of Japan and Korea.
