A year ago there were 316 reported cases of infection from the mosquito-borne virus, and 50 of them were fatal.

Those positive samples were found in north, east and south Davis between August 6 and August 20, according to the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito & Vector Control District. In Washoe County mosquitoes have tested positive in much smaller numbers, but there have been human cases this summer.

The statement said the city has an annual contract with Vector Disease Control International to provide mosquito control.

"Five of them are the very serious neuroinvasive disease, two of those are the mild fever and two of them are the asymptomatic ones where the patients have no symptoms at all and that was picked up from blood donations", said Kanter.

To date, no human cases of West Nile Virus have been reported in Dauphin County, the Conservation District says.

In Monday's (NZ time) second stage, riders will face a hilly route of almost 200 kilometres from Benidorm to Calpe on the southeastern coast.

The Salt Lake County Health Department and the Southwest Utah Public Health Department both confirmed human cases on Monday.

West Nile virus is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease in the United States and reemerges every summer in CT. More than 38,600 mosquitoes have been submitted for testing this year.

There is no specific treatment for West Nile virus infection other than to treat symptoms, the press release said. Some species of mosquitoes carry West Nile, which could be lethal when transmitted to individuals.

Officials encourage county residents to use mosquito repellent, and avoid the outdoors at dusk and dawn when West Nile-carrying mosquitoes are most active. An efficient repellent will comprise of DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
