On episode #3 of “This Week in Virology”, published on 2 October 2008, we talked about how the mortgage crisis is leading to abandoned swimming pools and an increase in infestation with mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus.

Is it possible that the NY Times is listening to TWiV? Unlikely.
At any rate, this article is evidence that TWiV is on top of virology. Check it out.
