Boise woman recovering from West Nile virus

Mosquito season just starting in Georgia

Last year, 13 cases of West Nile infection were reported among Wisconsin residents.

The State Department of Health from IN has reported that the activity of spreading up of West Nile will get increased by the mosquito season and it is supposed to be lasted until the month of October. "That means there are a lot of other people out there who have been infected".

Mosquitoes acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds.

"With yet another positive result, it's clear that West Nile Virus is now widespread across Durham Region", says Ken Gorman, director of environmental health. Illness can occur three to 15 days after an infected bite, and it affects all ages. Studies also indicate that those with diabetes and/or hypertension are at greatest risk for serious illness. "So we suspected Meningitis, but not West Nile virus".

McHenry County wants residents to take measures to protect themselves against contracting the West Nile virus, the county's health department said in a news release.

The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness has operated a mosquito control program for more than 50 years. It does get to a point where it is now in the mosquito population. 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. More information about insect repellents can be found online.

Residents can reduce potential exposure to the virus by wearing light coloured, long-sleeved clothing and use an insect repellant. The best protection is to avoid being bitten.

That includes wearing long sleeves and trousers at dawn and dusk, applying DEET-fortified mosquito repellent, securing window screens and dumping even minuscule amounts of standing water, which mosquitoes use for breeding, according to Vector Control. Make sure your doors and windows have tight fitting screens that keep mosquitoes out.
