Second case of West Nile virus reported in Maryland

"Due to information about where this individual was most likely exposed and continued findings of (West Nile virus) in mosquitoes in the area, there is an increased chance that additional human illnesses could occur", said Public Health Commissioner Monica Bharel.

As of September 7, California Department of Public Health has reported 56 human cases of West Nile virus from 21 California counties this year.

The risk of serious illness or death from West Nile Virus is low.

Seven human cases have been reported throughout Utah in 2018, including one death. "Even though it will be getting cooler in the evenings, it is still important to protect against mosquito bites during the fall months until there is a significant frost event", he continued. Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR 3535 according to label instructions.

Repellents help keep mosquitoes from biting.

Daniels is also suing Trump for defamation for suggesting she was lying about being threatened to keep quiet about the affair. Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges last month, including two campaign finance violations.

While West Nile has not been found in Carver, a ban is in effect for all outdoor activities between dusk and dawn.

Make sure your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out mosquitoes. Remove standing water from your property as that can often become breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Wearing light-colored clothing to cover the skin reduces the risk of bites. Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property by emptying flower pots, old auto tires, buckets, and other containers.

WNV is a disease that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.
