The Huron County Health Unit is encouraging locals to be proactive in protecting themselves from mosquito bites. The flavivirus has been making its way across the country since 1999 through a range of mosquito species, and is not transmitted through person-to-person or animal-to-person contact.

The most common symptoms of the disease are high fever, body aches, and headache.

Mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile virus in the eastern Coachella Valley for the first time in 2017.

Following a mild winter and a wet spring, West Nile Virus could be active this year, if there's a hot and dry summer, according to Theodore Andreadis, director of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. The mosquitoes were collected between June 2 and June 5, and tested positive for the virus in the NSMAD lab June 6, according to a statement Wednesday from NSMAD.

WAND talked to health officials on how to stay safe from the virus that can easily turn deadly if untreated.

He says while there have been no West Nile cases reported in Huron County, it's always wise to take precautions. To date, there has only been 1 human infection.

"West Nile's here and it's been here", Fletcher said.

Many people who get the virus show no symptoms or mild symptoms, according to the health district.

"The organoids provide a way to obtain good models of the human brain without using human embryos to obtain the initial cells", explains Dr. Brinton.
