Stanislaus County man dies from West Nile virus

Iowa Department of Public Health Reports First West Nile Death

Health officials are having to perform additional tests to differentiate between the two viruses. The age range of symptomatic cases was from 21 to 77 years old. Mosquitoes become infected by biting birds carrying the virus.

COURTESY PHOTO Known as a vector for the West Nile virus, this Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito has landed on a human finger. About 10 percent of people who develop neurologic infection due to West Nile virus will die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. People older than 50 and people with diabetes and hypertension are at higher risk. Roughly one in five people experience flu-like symptoms. Older people and those with weakened immune symptoms usually have the greatest risk of developing serious complications.

West Nile virus season extends into October in this county, so health officials say it's important for residents to continue to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.

The new case was found in Monroe County.

The state and county say the virus was detected in a Western Scrub Jay. Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing.

Citizens are urged to protect themselves from mosquitoes by staying indoors during the peak hours of mosquito activity at dawn and dusk when possible; using approved mosquito repellants, and ensuring screens and seals are intact around windows and doors. Fix or replace screens with tears or holes.

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including unused flower pots, old vehicle tires, rain gutters or pet bowls.

Remove any water from unused swimming pools, wading pools, boats, planters, trash and recycling bins, tires, and anything else that collects water, and cover them.
