Adult dies of West Nile virus News

White says he prefers to control the mosquito population through biological means as a first resort.

The state health department and federal Centers for Disease Control websites show there were about 50 West Nile infections reported in Louisiana in 2017, with three deaths.

Symptoms of West Nile Virus include fever, body aches, skin rash and swollen lymph nodes.

Four out of five people who are infected with West Nile virus do not get sick. The county health department is taking an aggressive approach in fighting the problem. Apply mosquito repellent and wear protective clothing.

This past week, some of the Culex tarsalis mosquitoes caught in surveillance traps were found to be infected with West Nile virus.

Mosquitoes are usually just irritating, but certain mosquitoes carry West Nile Virus, which can be deadly.

West Nile virus is one of several mosquito-borne viruses that can be acquired in North Carolina, DHHS says.

Environmental officials have detected West Nile Virus in five CT towns.

They are the state's first reported West Nile cases of the year. During that time, 48 people have died from the infection in North Carolina through 2016.

To avoid getting mosquitoes in your house, make sure windows are tightly closed and to replace screens with holes in them.

The first finding of mosquito-transmitted virus in DE also serves, he said, as a good reminder for people to continue taking common-sense precautions against mosquito bites.

The CDC recommends using repellents containing EPA-registered active ingredients including DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon-eucalyptus.

Reduce mosquito breeding by emptying standing water from flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, pet water dishes, discarded tires and birdbaths at least once a week.

Glynn County is being actively treated for mosquitoes, according to a release from the Coastal Health District.
