Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus

Hey there.
My name is Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus.
I'm a Togavirus.
I'm also an arborvirus.

I mostly live around horses.
I also love birds, especially game birds and song birds.
I live in the United States and in South America, near marsh land and even the Amazon!

I cause encephalitis.
I start with fever and muscle pain, then headache, vomiting and seizures.
I can kill or paralyse.
