West Nile virus found in mosquito

For the second time this summer West Nile Virus has made an appearance in Lambton County

North Dakota is reporting a sharp increase in the number of West Nile Virus cases.

Dallas County in Texas is the latest community in the US to report West Nile virus cases during 2018. About 1 in 5 people who are infected will develop a fever with other symptoms such as a headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash.

-Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas, and hot tubs; drain water from pool covers.

DRESS APPROPRIATELY-Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, and socks. Empty containers and change water weekly in containers that can not be removed, such as bird baths, pet dishes and wading pools. "Potential routes of introduction include importation of infected birds, mosquitoes or [via] human beings".

Kwit said healthy people might have come in contact with the West Nile Virus and might not even know it.

The disease, which has infected more than 150 people in the past six years, is on track to pose an unusually higher-than-normal risk this year and is widespread throughout the commonwealth, having already been found in 51 Pennsylvania counties as of August 1, including Dauphin.

Be sure to use insect repellent whenever going outdoors.

Live chickens were placed in many locations throughout Kenner by Mosquito Control in order to carry out regular tests for the West Nile Virus.

"While the symptoms may not seem threatening in the vast majority of cases, serious impacts to health can occur from being bitten by mosquitoes that carry this virus", McDonnell said.

No human cases of West Nile virus have been reported this year in Dauphin County.

The Indiana State Department of Health says the human case was confirmed Monday in Vanderburgh County and that 168 mosquito samples in 27 Indiana counties have tested positive for the virus.

Since the summer of 1999, West Nile virus has quietly spread to most states in the USA.

"The best way to avoid mosquito-borne diseases is to prevent mosquito bites", states the DOH website.
