Counties with one case each are Bolivar, Clarke, Clay, Covington, DeSoto, Jones, Lauderdale, Leake, Leflore, Noxubee, Perry, Sunflower, Wilkinson and Yazoo. In recent years, OH reported 17 human West Nile Virus cases in 2016 including four deaths, 35 in 2015 including two deaths and 11 in 2014 including one death.

Trump refutes NBC story, suggests challenging its broadcasting license
On some days, the majority of the tweets fluttering from the Oval Office focus on the press . The President's denial was buttressed by a statement from his defence chief.

"Detection in chickens means there is a risk of potential spread to humans via mosquitoes", Santa Barbara County Public Health Officer Dr. Charity Dean said in a statement. "Mosquito season in OH lasts until the first freeze which is not usually until mid-October".

Health officials are urging residents to protect themselves from mosquitoes by avoiding outdoor activity when mosquitoes are most active - at dusk and dawn.

When outdoors, wear long trousers and long-sleeved shirts and use mosquito repellents.

Wear loose, light-colored, long clothing to cover the arms and legs when outdoors.

Ensure that door and window screens are tight-fitting and in good fix.
