West Nile Virus found in second sample of mosquitoes in Clark County

The first reported case of West Nile Virus in Kansas was confirmed in June in Barton County.

There is no specific treatment for the infection, the health district says, and the best way to avoid West Nile Virus is to prevent mosquito bites. About 1 out of 150 people who are infected do develop a serious illness that sometimes is fatal.

Traps created to catch mosquitoes at six different locations in the county have turned up mosquitoes carrying the virus, but it's too early to know if any humans were exposed, Ed Kalas, Shawnee County Health Department environmental and community health manager, told the county commission Thursday.

This year to date, there have been no reported human cases of the West Nile virus identified in Allegheny County.

While most people infected by the virus won't notice any symptoms, they can include flu-like symptoms such as fever and body aches, or worse, according to the health department.

Use a mosquito repellent with an EPA-registered ingredient such as DEET while you are outdoors.

"The virus will amplify or will peak in the mosquito population usually before we have human cases", he said.

"I urge all Hoosiers to take precautions against mosquito bites, which will protect against West Nile and other viruses transmitted by mosquitoes". "It may be 10 to 20 percent who get infected [who] may experience signs and symptoms".

More severe cases include high fever, headache and stiff neck, disorientation and confusion. Symptoms can develop within three and 15 days after a bite from an infected mosquito, and sickness can last a few days to weeks.

According to the news release, the person was a woman who lived in central North Dakota and was older than 60 years of age.

Though protection from infection is important for everyone, said state health educator Becky Ward. The prevention measures for California serogroup viruses are the same as those for other mosquito-borne diseases, including West Nile virus.

The department will continue virus surveillance into the fall. Drain wading pools and wheelbarrows when not in use, remove leaf debris from gutters, used tires, flower pots or similar water-holding containers.
