Mosquitoes found in county test positive for West Nile

A mosquito pool near Mount Blanchard tested positive for West Nile virus, the Ohio Department of Health informed Hancock Public Health.

In June, the county placed Gravid traps, which are used to attract mosquitoes, in the zip code areas of 49503, 49504 and 49519, in addition to where the virus was detected.

State environmental officials haven't found West Nile virus or eastern equine encephalitis in the latest round of mosquito tests in Rhode Island. Just because West Nile was only found in one zip code does not mean that is the only place the virus is present in Kent County, said Adam London, administrative health officer at the health department.

Four other traps in the testing surveillance project are created to attract Aedes Egypti and Aedes Albopictus mosquitoes - two species known to carry Zika virus. The health department collected the sample between Tuesday and Thursday. "We want people to be aware that they can greatly reduce their own risks by taking some simple precautions". Since then, more than 1,100 people in the state have been diagnosed and 92 have died.
