West Nile Virus-positive mosquito cases detected in Montana

County officials said birds and humans both receive the virus the same way, through mosquito bites. The ZIP Codes are 40204, 40205, 40206, 40208, 40212 and 40214.

The Ohio Department of Health said that West Nile virus is most commonly spread by infected mosquitoes that can lead to severe fever, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord). But the risk of contracting West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne illnesses is present any time mosquitoes are active.

Less than one percent of people infected with the virus get seriously ill with symptoms that include high fever, muscle weakness, stiff neck, disorientation, mental confusion, tremors, confusion, paralysis, and coma.

The sample was collected June 27 in Turtlecreek Township, according to a news release from the Warren County Health District. Studies also indicate that those with diabetes and/or hypertension are at greatest risk for serious illness.

The severity and symptoms of West Nile Virus can vary widely. Public Health Officials in South Georgia encourage everyone to guard against exposure to mosquitoes. "We are increasing treatment protocols for the surrounding areas and targeting known habitat areas to minimize the development of adult mosquitoes". 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.
