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

So far this year, pools of mosquitoes tested positive for the West Nile Virus in Fulton, Livingston, and McLean counties.

Mosquito traps set August 2 west of Highway 88 and north of Centerville Lane also tested positive of the West Nile Virus. But officials from the CDC said such cases are rare.

The DeKalb County Health Department has reported that mosquitoes collected in a trap in Sycamore tested positive for West Nile virus. They bite infected birds and so they transmit the virus.

Clermont County Public Health is in the process of conducting an environmental assessment in the area to implement mosquito control. Last year MS reported 43 human cases of West Nile, resulting in 2 deaths. About one in five will develop mild symptoms, including fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting and swollen lymph glands. People age 60 and older bear the most risk from the disease, according to the agency. In rare cases, the infection can be fatal.

The virus is contracted from mosquito bites, but symptoms are quite variant, according to the Center for Disease Control. The mosquitoes that carry the virus are typically out from dusk to dawn.

Wear long sleeves and trousers during peak mosquito hours, which are around dawn and dusk. If you have an ornamental pond, contact the Solano County Mosquito Abatement District at (707) 437-1116 for a free mosquito fish.

Use EPA-registered mosquito repellent and follow the label directions.

Other tips include making sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens, repairing or replacing screens that are torn, and keeping doors and windows shut, especially at night. Fix or replace screens with tears or holes. "We were surprised we didn't find it in a mosquito first".
