Patterns detected by us so far:

2. West Nile virus, as per the season, is more active during warmer seasons than the colder ones majorly because of the carriers of the disease are more active during that season.
3. The region near the tri-state area is highly susceptible to west nile virus near the forest regions indicating the origin of spread.
There are other geographic pattern which can be detected by studying the visualization using the timeline.
