West Nile virus findings prompt mosquito warning for SL County residents

Eleven more tests were confirmed positive Friday. "A single positive identification is reason for caution, but it isn't the start of an epidemic".

Last year, IL reported 155 cases and six deaths from West Nile virus. "A serious West Nile virus infection generally requires hospitalization".

The positive result was discovered in a trap located in Lower Central Hamilton and has prompted the city to bump the risk of West Nile virus from low to moderate.

"There can be some very mild symptoms if someone is infected with West Nile Virus - nearly flu-like symptoms, a fever, muscle aches, body aches and it can go into a more risky form of disease known as encephalitis, which is a serious condition of the brain and requires immediate medical attention". Most reports of West Nile popped up between July and September. In that case, Downey said, hospital treatment should be sought.

"We definitely want to inform our public that West Nile is here".

"You can also avoid times that are peak for mosquitoes like at dusk and at dawn". Consider rescheduling outdoor activities that occur during evening or early morning.

If the weather allows for it, wear long sleeves, pants, and socks outdoors. Wear longer sleeves and trousers if outside. It doesn't take much time or water for mosquitoes to develop from eggs into adults.

And to eliminate breeding grounds for mosquitoes, people should get rid of standing water that can be in flower pots, buckets and other areas. Check rain gutters and drains.

Change water weekly in containers that can not be removed, such as pet dishes or bird baths.
