West Nile virus is usually spread to people through mosquito bites, not from person to person.

Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) reports that a dead bird found in Dane County has West Nile virus.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said north-central, south-central, and southwest Kansas at at high risk, while northeast, southeast, and northwest Kansas are at moderate risk for West Nile infections. Those mosquitoes carry diseases like West Nile Virus, which had 62 reported cases a year ago.

It is not known if the victim lived in Robeson County, said Bill Smith, county Health Department director. One in five people infected will develop a fever along with other symptoms like headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash. They're spreading West Nile virus across the Midwest this summer.

West Nile virus is one of several mosquito-borne viruses that can be acquired in North Carolina, according to the state Health Department.

The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes. Mosquitoes lay their eggs on standing water.

If outside for long periods of time, wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers. Change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in ver baths weekly.

Lastly, Otaigbe said you can use repellent containing DEET on someone as young as two months, but do not apply the repellent onto the child's hands, near the eyes, or mouth, or irritated skin.

Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitos out. Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flower pots, old auto tires, rain gutters and pet bowls.
