State Reports Its 1st Human Case Of West Nile For 2017

"The City's program aims to reduce the mosquito population to lessen the potential impact of the West Nile Virus in St. Charles".

A 44-year-old man from the southwestern OH county is recovering from the West Nile infection and did not require hospitalization, the department said.

And in order to attract the mosquitoes to the trap, employees at the health department make a special concoction.

Officials announced Tuesday that a case of West Nile Virus was confirmed in York County. It cannot be directly passed between horses or from horses to humans, though people can contract both diseases. However, most people who are infected will not develop any symptoms at all. WNV is a viral disease affecting the central nervous system that can be transmitted to humans by mosquitoes.

West Nile virus surveillance in Utah is underway and will continue into the fall.

So far this year, pools of mosquitoes tested positive for the West Nile Virus in Fulton, Livingston, and McLean counties. When outside, wear shoes and socks, long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that includes DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Seniors, immuno-compromised people, and young children are at greatest risk for health complications.

There were eight reported (confirmed or probable) cases of humans contracting the virus.

People in those communities, especially the elderly, are being urged to take precautions when out at high-mosquito-activity periods, like dawn and dusk. When outdoors, no matter what time of day, adjust your dress accordingl and wear insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus as your first line of defense against insect bites.

Residents can also mosquito-proof their home by installing or repairing screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out.
