IL reports first death in 2018 from West Nile virus

KCHD wants to again remind residents to take precautions by wearing bug spray that contains DEET and to drain any standing water where mosquitos can breed.

"We will also do extra trapping in the area and send the samples to the Mississippi State Health Department for testing", Fayard said.

For those who are bitten by mosquitoes, Davis said roughly 80 percent of those who contract the West Nile virus don't actually present symptoms.

The state this week announced an adult from Cumberland County tested positive for the virus and is recovering in the hospital. Try to avoid outdoor activities during these times.

Cover up: Wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers. Cookman says you need to look at the label to make sure it has 20 to 30% DEET, a repellent ingredient. Follow the directions on the package.

Any standing water close to home should be emptied, in order to eliminate possible breeding grounds for mosquitos.

Watch and listen to health department alerts and warnings about mosquito disease outbreaks. Birds and horses can also contract the virus. "Some people will even be ill and get better and not even realize they've had the West Nile Virus". About one out of 150 infected people develop swelling of the brain or brain tissue, that in some cases, can result in death.

Byers said the infection can cause encephalitis or meningitis, which can lead to paralysis, coma and possibly death. It is the state's first human case of West Nile virus since 2015.

There have been other reports in SC of the virus, including one in Boiling Springs, Greenwood and Anderson County, according to multiple news reports.

Michael Hokanson, with the North Central Health District, confirms there have been under 5 cases reported in the district. Two of them, a Suffolk County resident in her 40s and a Worcester County woman in her 70s, were admitted to hospitals.
