Cases of West Nile Virus have been confirmed in 36 states including California Florida Georgia Iowa Louisiana Massachusetts Minnesota North Carolina and Texas according to the CDC

MDH says there were 30 West Nile cases last year and 83 the year before.

Cases of the disease have been confirmed in 36 states including California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina and Texas, according to the CDC.

"That is why we are warning the public", an official said. The trap was part of the county's routine West Nile Virus Vector Surveillance testing.

Anyone with the sudden onset of these severe symptoms should seek immediate medical attention. "These factors indicate that the risk for human West Nile virus infections is elevated and will likely remain elevated through the remainder of August". In severe cases, the virus can cause paralysis or death.

Tribune Cancels Sinclair Buyout, Files $1 Billion Lawsuit
Sinclair defended the script as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media. Kern said he would continue to run the company until Tribune reached a "permanent state".

'Until the state's first hard frost, whether it's for work or play, being outside means there's a risk for West Nile virus'.

Health officials say that most people infected with the virus do not see any symptoms.

To protect yourself from the disease, experts recommend wearing insect repellent, avoid going outside between dawn and dusk which are peak mosquito feeding times, and to wear loose clothing.

It has been reported to the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit that mosquitoes collected from three traps last week in the Dresden, Blenheim and North West Chatham areas have tested positive for West Nile Virus. The health department will also continue spraying pesticides until this year's first "freezing" temperatures. But the elderly and those with compromised immune systems can become seriously ill and could die.
