West Nile pops up in West Michigan

Oneida County resident tests positive for West Nile Virus

In mid-June, the season's first West Nile-infected mosquitoes were found on Staten Island.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health notified the West Springfield Health department that a group of mosquitoes collected have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

County officials said containers should be emptied of stagnant water every five days to prevent adult mosquitoes from emerging. "We will not be able to completely eradicate West Nile virus from the mosquito population, but we can reduce human transmission and save lives". Last year, four West Nile virus positive birds were identified in El Dorado County on the western slope.

West Nile virus, which was first detected in birds and mosquito samples in Suffolk County in 1999 and annually since, is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. Those who do become ill usually experience mild symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle ache, rash and fatigue.

Older adults and those with compromised immune systems are at greater risk of developing central nervous system illness that can be fatal.

So far this year, West Nile virus activity has been reported in 28 California counties, including neighboring Sacramento and Placer counties.

So far in DE this year, no cases of WNV or EEE have been found in humans or horses.

Four other traps in the testing surveillance project are created to attract Aedes Egypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes - two species known to carry Zika virus. To report a sick or dead crow, blue jay or raven, please call the Dead Bird Reporting Hotline at 1-800-433-1610.
