Community members warned about Eastern Equine Encephalitis

Massachusetts health officials have increased the number of communities at high risk for EEE

A fourth person died after contracting Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Massachusetts, while an 11th human case of the virus has been confirmed, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced on Wednesday.

The spraying will begin on Sunday, September 29 at 8 p.m. Officials say the spraying will be conducted by low-flying aircraft and should wrap up by 4:30 a.m. Monday. In addition, local officials are taking extra measures to secure our water supply.

The protocol for reporting EEE human cases is for the hospital to send potential cases to the state's public health lab for testing.

Given the record numbers of EEE cases in MI and other at-risk states, we would appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the CDC's efforts to prevent the spread of this vector borne illness.

State officials say pyrethrins have been used since the 1950s.

A deadly mosquito-borne virus that has already killed several people this year has now been detected in NY.

As stated by the Genesee County Health Department, a deer in Genesee County tested positive for the mosquito borne EEE virus last week and was euthanized due to the severity of the disease symptoms.

Kiev unlikely to publish Trump call transcript
Lutsenko reportedly said he was eager to cooperate with Giuliani and Trump but did not have sufficient evidence to act on his own. Another 30 percent said they have heard "some" details about the Ukraine call. "But you can not go elsewhere for a soul".

"We have provided every team that practices outside with DEET mosquito spray for those that would like to use it", Goggins said.

Avoid being outdoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers when outdoors.

Use nets and/or fans over outdoor eating areas.

Maintain window and door screening to help keep mosquitoes out of buildings.

Empty water from sites where mosquitoes lay eggs. However, southern MI has recently been hit particularly hard with seven confirmed cases, three of which resulted in death. These animal cases have been identified in 13 counties (Barry, Berrien, Calhoun, Cass, Genesee, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Kent, Lapeer, Montcalm, Newaygo, St. Joseph and Van Buren).

EEE, which triggers mind swelling, fever, and coma, kills roughly one third of the individuals who contract it, in keeping with the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention.
