1st human West Nile cases of season confirmed in CT

The virus is spread by mosquito bites

West Nile virus is a viral infection found in birds and carried by mosquitoes which feed upon infected birds. Treated areas in August have included Arroyo, Mace Ranch and Pioneer parks as well as the Isla Greenbelt.

People mildly affected by West Nile might have a fever, headache and body aches, but serious illness, such as encephalitis and meningitis, and death are possible, the release said.

This is the first bird that tested positive for West Nile virus in Kenosha County since surveillance for the mosquito-transmitted virus began May 1.

No human cases have been reported so far.

"The public should assume that there are mosquitoes carrying the disease throughout Mobile County", Dr. Bernard H. Eichold II, Health Officer for Mobile County said.

The SHA is reminding residents to take precautions including wearing insect repellants that contain DEET; ones containing Icaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus are also recommended.

Meghan has to undergo a royal 'test' this summer and we're confused
Of course, at this point it's safe to say that Meghan Markle has replaced her Hollywood lifestyle with her new royal one, instead. Former royal butler Grant Harrold told Express that much this week in an interview.

Public health workers also advise removing standing water from your property.

Install or Repair Screens - Some mosquitoes like to come indoors. Eliminate all sources of standing water by emptying flower pots, old auto tires, buckets and other containers. Do not apply under clothing, to wounds or irritated skin, the hands of children, or to infants less than two months old.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools. More than 40,000 acres were treated over two nights in July using Trumpet EC, an insecticide routinely used for mosquito control throughout the country.

"Make sure to fix or install window and door screens to keep mosquitoes from entering your home". The district has kept close eye on Citrus Heights, Orangevale and North Highlands where recently much of the virus activity has been concentrated in.
