First West Nile Virus case reported in Merced County. Experts urge precautions

First West Nile Virus case reported in Merced County. Experts urge precautions

The health unit says the finding of West Nile virus is not unusual as the virus is typically detected this time of year in trapped mosquitoes.

Massachusetts Department of Public Health recently also announced positive tests mosquitoes from Falmouth, Barnstable, Dennis, Bourne and Yarmouth. But experts are encouraging residents to report swimming pools with standing water, or neglected swimming pools. So it is important to ensure that there are no areas or items that can collect or pool standing water in your garden or lawn.

Avoid the outdoors during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

West Nile virus - which is carried by infected mosquitos and has a habit of making people very ill - has been steadily spreading across the United States for a while now, but 2018 is proving to be a particularly active year. The vector control district is planning a targeted treatment operation on Wednesday in an effort to prevent human cases of West Nile virus, which has resulted in 292 fatalities statewide since 2003.

Butler County health officials have confirmed West Nile virus in a pool of mosquitoes for the first time this summer. The report by Michael Nash, head of the county's Office of Child Protection, drew a clear distinction between the child welfare system's failings preceding the horrific death in 2013 of 8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez and how it dealt with complaints in Anthony's case.

Public Health Ontario (PHO) has found West Nile virus in 65 batches of mosquitoes collected across the province so far this year.

Among the tips Gruener shared to reduce the risk of being bitten by a mosquito, she said the most important was to choose a repellent with picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or Deet, although Gruener said she has heard some people say Deet eventually stops working for them.
