Ross River virus (RRV) is a mosquito-borne virus that causes a wide range of symptoms in infected individuals. Most commonly found in Australia and the Pacific Islands, RRV is spread by mosquitoes that are active during the day. While the virus does not generally cause severe illness, symptoms can be debilitating and long-lasting, with some individuals experiencing joint pain and fatigue for several months after infection. Prevention of RRV is key, and individuals are encouraged to take steps to protect themselves from mosquito bites by wearing protective clothing and using insect repellent when spending time outdoors.
