MS has its first human case of West Nile virus in 2019.

West Nile virus has been detected in mosquitoes in MA for the first time this year, according to the Department of Public Health.

The department says Thursday that the case is in Smith County, in the central part of the state.

White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow appears to have been converted into a fan of New York Democratic Rep. The House Republican Conference chairwoman added she believed Democrats have, "become a party of socialists".

People 60 years and older and those with compromised immune systems have the highest risk of complications, including encephalitis and meningitis, officials said.

Every year, health officials advise making sure you don't have standing water near your home to help avoid a mosquito problem.

Nickerson resident Kerri Melton says she was diagnosed with West Nile last month. "This local death serves as a reminder to our community of the importance of taking precautions against mosquito bites", Imperial County health officer Dr. Stephen Munday said in a statement. "So with all the mosquito activity right now and monsoon season coming up, yeah we're a expecting pretty heavy season", Sunenshine said.
