West Nile warning issued in southeastern Saskatchewan after positive tests

EEE detected in Chatham County, residents urged to take ... - Wsav TV

West Nile virus season is hear.

This is the first human WNV case in Greece in two years.

West Nile virus has been confirmed in more than a dozen mosquito samples in St. Tammany Parish, officials confirmed. The man in his 20s became ill on July 8 with a headache, body ache, and a stiff neck-symptoms consistent with the virus.

Authorities have detected West Nile virus in mosquitoes in the city of New Orleans, Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office announced Friday (Sept. 21). "However, the hot, dry conditions we've been seeing around the rest of IL, which leave small, stagnant pockets of standing water, create ideal breeding sites for the type of mosquito that does carry West Nile virus".

If symptoms are going to show up, they'll appear between two days and two weeks after a person is bitten by an infected mosquito.

Eliminate standing water around your home, where mosquitoes breed.

Be most careful at dawn and dusk, which are peak mosquito-biting times. "A serious West Nile virus infection generally requires hospitalization". "It's just a matter of when they're going to find it in most of the counties in IN, so it comes down to personal protection and trying to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds".

Environmental Department Manager Brian Eckert said while the three cities have tested positive, it doesn't mean the virus, which is spread by mosquitoes, is contained to just those places. Missouri had 11 cases and no deaths in 2016. "I believe it was sometime in the 1990s when we had our first West Nile discovery in the state, and it's been here every summer since then". Wear longer sleeves and trousers if outside.
