|Vectorial capacity (VC) of experimental populations of Cx. pipiens following exposure to WNV WT and WNV MP20|
1 mean blood feeding rate.
2 vector competence (b) = infection rate *dissemination rate.
3 probability of daily survival.
4 extrinsic incubation period (N) = mean time in days from infection to transmission.
