Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus discovered in St. Louis County

West Nile virus risk rising in southeast Sask

About 1 in 5 people who are infected develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Williams County Vector Control does trap runs every morning to keep tabs on mosquito activity and the West Nile carrier, "Culex tarsalis".

"Even though serious West Nile Virus cases in humans are rare, it is important to minimize our exposure", said Dr. Faisal Khan, director of the department. Although there have been no cases reported to the KDHE in 2018, there have been more than 600 cases of the most severe form of WNV and 30 deaths in Kansas from 1999-2017.

KDHE did say there are no cases now.

The agency encourages residents and visitors to take precautions to prevent mosquito-borne.

The Winnebago County Health Department says it has positively identified one mosquito pool as having West Nile virus.

The district's website features a mosquito treatment notification service, plus an interactive map so residents can determine whether they are in the spraying zone.

Right now, lab tests in the western part of North Dakota are showing an abundance of mosquitoes carrying West Nile. Be sure to use insect repellent and wear long sleeves and trousers at these times, or consider staying indoors during these hours. Change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in bird baths weekly. Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out.

Kansas health officials have issued a high-risk warning for West Nile virus infections for half of the state.

"It's early enough in the year that when this virus does start moving around, there's plenty of time for amplification, meaning that it's very possible for a lot of people to become infected in the time remaining in this summer".

Horses can also be infected with WNV.
