West Nile Virus Detected in 36 States

A statement from the Shelby County Health Department on Thursday says the virus has been detected in mosquitoes throughout the county and officials are advising residents to take extra precautions.

Kozhikode: One case of West Nile fever has been confirmed in Kozhikode.

That person marks the first human case of the virus reported in Colorado this year.

"The recent wet and increasing hot weather has created the flawless conditions for the Culex mosquito that carries West Nile Virus", Mark E. Wallace, Executive Director of the Weld County Health Department, stated in a press release.

Going into the long weekend, the province is reminding people that warm and dry conditions have been ideal for the breed of mosquito that carries West Nile, the culex tarsalis.

About 80 percent of infected people show no symptoms at all. But officials say to avoid false positives, which are common among such infections, a second sample will be sent to NIV in 10 days for a confirmation. Drain any standing water in your yard each week.

Things like bird baths should be changed at least weekly.

"It doesn't take much for several hundred mosquitoes to be born".

To reduce the risk, the province suggests limiting time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn, using repellent, wearing light-coloured, loose clothing and making sure screens on windows and doors are free of holes.

"Until the hard frosts of fall set in, Halton residents should continue to protect themselves against mosquito bites and remove mosquito breeding sites", said Dr. Daniela Kempkens, Halton Region Acting Medical Officer of Health.
