Defiance County man becomes first 2017 OH death from West Nile virus

Today's date: Thursday September 07, 2017

The Connecticut Department of Public Health announced Friday afternoon that a resident of New Haven has tested positive for a West Nile Virus infection, becoming the first human case of the virus in Connecticut this season. "This is why personal protection measures are so important to hunters and outdoorsmen", said Jeff Brown, the Mosquito Control Supervisor for Brunswick County. People who are older or have compromised immune systems have a greater risk of serious symptoms.

To guard against the virus, the district urges residents to take precautions to avoid mosquito bites.

Use an insect repellent containing DEET and apply it according to the manufacturer's directions.

Wearing long, light-colored clothing to cover the arms and legs.

Check and remove standing water from children's toys and play houses left outside.

During the summer, mosquito larvae can complete their development in water within a week.

Hart says at the time of this release 370 positive mosquito pools had been identified throughout the province and 37 human cases reported.

Residents who notice large areas of standing water on public property should report this to the Westchester County Department of Health at 813-5000. The very young, the elderly and people with other conditions, such as cancer or diabetes, are at higher risk.

If you have bitten by a mosquito and feel ill, contact your doctor. Most people infected show no symptoms, but in rare cases, severe illness, including meningitis or encephalitis, or even death, can occur. Caledon residents can call toll free at 905-584-2216.
