New West Nile Virus case reported in Forrest County

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.

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.
