Its acronym is appropriately EEE. Because, “eeeee”, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is something that you don’t want to get.
According to a recent announcement from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), an Allegan County, Michigan, resident developed EEE and was hospitalized in late August with neurological problems. EEE is caused by EEEV, the Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV), which is an alphavirus. Some people want to be an alpha, but no one should want this alphavirus.
