Another Mosquito Pool Tests Positive For West Nile Virus

Mosquito trap

Health officials are looking into two potential human cases of the West Nile virus in Simcoe County.

Mosquitoes spread West Nile by first feeding on infected birds, then pass it on to other birds and mammals, including humans, when they bite.

According to CDC, most people (70-80 percent) infected with WNV show no symptoms at all.

Four other probable causes of the virus have appeared in OH this year. He says look out for symptoms like high fever, muscle weakness, confusion, tremors and headache.

"There's no treatment for West Nile Virus specifically but there's supportive care". Older adults and persons with weakened immune systems and/or other chronic illnesses are at the greatest risk for severe illness.

The Wisconsin Division of Public Health will continue surveillance for West Nile virus until the end of the mosquito season.

Frequently replace the water in pet bowls.

There are ways you can keep yourself safe like use insect repellent and do not forget to reapply, wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers, if you have a fan laying around, turn it on, as that can help too.

Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are active (especially late afternoon, dusk to dawn and early morning). Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered repellents with 10-30 percent DEET, picaridin, IR3535 and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.

WNV is transmitted through mosquito bites.

Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home.
