Mosquito spraying scheduled for Monday in parts of Adams County

The Jackson County Health Department reports a horse in the county has tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV).

Despite the series of positive examples, no human cases of West Nile virus have been reported in Lake County this year.

County officials said birds and humans both receive the virus the same way, through mosquito bites.

The State Health Commissioner, Dr. Jerome Adams has given a statement saying "Each year, we see people become ill as a result of mosquito bites".

The West Nile virus does not usually affect domestic animals, but can cause severe illness in horses and certain species of birds.

The findings are especially troubling for the south of the province, including Toronto, Hamilton, Halton Region, Peel Region, Windsor-Essex County, and York Region, where the majority of West Nile cases have occurred in the past.

The mosquito sample was collected in rural Shobonier last Tuesday and tested last Thursday.

For more information about West Nile Virus, visit the Centers For Disease Control & Prevention website.

Greg Maurice, director of health protection for the department, said in an email that the mosquitoes were collected August 10 from a trap on North Cross Street in Sycamore, and more positive tests are expected to follow.

No human cases have been reported locally this year. Counties with one case each are Bolivar, Clay, Covington, Jones, Leake, Leflore, Lowndes, Noxubee, Perry, Scott and Wilkinson.

The elimination of standing water can help prevent issues with mosquitoes.

Using insect repellent when outdoors; a repellent with DEET or lcaridin offers the most effective protection. Mosquitoes lay eggs in still water, which then hatch in seven to 10 days.

Eliminate any standing water that collects on your property.

The batches were from across the city and not specific to one area. Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out mosquitoes. The rest will experience fever, head and body ache, nausea, vomiting, and rashes on the back, chest, and stomach.
