U.S. researchers reviewed two outbreaks of mosquito-borne Eastern equine encephalitis that occurred since the mid-2000s, and found 15 pediatric cases in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. CDC officials receive an average of about five to 10 cases per year nationwide, but Massachusetts recorded the highest incidence rate since 1956 with seven cases last year alone. The findings appear in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.
