Dallas reports 1st human West Nile virus death

West Nile Virus found in mosquitoes in Perth County traps

Niagara Region PublicHealth has received its first report of West Nile Virus (WNV) in mosquitoes in2018.

Two new cases were reported in Hinds County.

-Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas, and hot tubs; drain water from pool covers. Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers and use repellant with deet.

"Anything ... around your yard that is just a source of standing water that's not moving and isn't chlorinated like your pool is, you want to get rid of that water so you don't encourage mosquito breeding", Rigler said.

Mosquitoes acquire the virus by biting infected birds and transmit the virus to people through a subsequent bite.

DUSK and DAWN-This is when mosquitoes are most active. Signs of infection in horses include fever (although not always with WNV), anorexia, head pressing, depression or personality change, wobbling or staggering, weakness, blindness, convulsions, muscle spasms in the head and neck, or hind-limb weakness. Mosquitoes can become infected when they feed on the blood from infected birds.

- Use insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, IR 3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or permethrin and apply to clothing when outdoors.

The Indiana State Department of Health says the human case was confirmed Monday in Vanderburgh County and that 168 mosquito samples in 27 Indiana counties have tested positive for the virus.

About 80 percent of people who are infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms at all, but there is no way to know in advance if a person will develop an illness or not.

The best defense against WNV is bite prevention.
