Third West Nile Virus Case Confirmed In Bay County

Dead birds had West Nile - BC News

Ohio's Department of Health said Tuesday two horses in Northeast Ohio tested positive for the virus that is transmitted through bites from infected mosquitoes.

Lincoln County has its first confirmed human case of West Nile virus. So far, no human cases have been reported, no positive mosquito pools have been identified, and Canadian Blood Services has seen no positives through its screening program. The majority of people bitten by an infected mosquito will have no symptoms, about 20 percent will have mild flu-like symptoms, and less than 1 percent will become seriously ill.

The person died last week and was diagnosed with a "more severe" form of the mosquito-borne illness. Also consider wearing shoes and socks, long trousers, and long-sleeved shirts.

Apply Insect Repellent when Outdoors. Limit mosquitoes in your home by ensuring windows and door screens fit tightly and don't have holes.

Airport Forced to Use Whiteboard to Prevent Total Travel Mayhem
A Gatwick spokesman blamed an "ongoing issue" with Vodaphone, which provides IT services for the airport. Gatwick Airport is using whiteboards to display flight information following an IT failure.

This year's first case comes more than a month earlier than the first case of 2017, but Vélez de Brown said it's not necessarily a harbinger of an especially active season.

Once in water - as little as a spoon's worth - mosquitos will go from larvae to a biting menace in a mere three days. If you've got a plastic swimming pool, empty it when it's not in use. You should wear loose-fitting and long-sleeved clothing. Horse owners should keep horses in indoor stalls at night to reduce their risk of exposure to mosquitoes.

Some tips include: draining standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying and covering skin with clothes or repellent.

State Epidemiologist at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Dr. Catherine Brown, explains how they conduct mosquito testing. In rare cases West Nile may cause encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain.
