OH reports its 1st horse West Nile virus cases this year

An Irvington man has become the first person to contract the West Nile Virus this year in Westchester County. Eight of these cases occurred in Dane County, which was the highest number ever reported in the county. Most people who become infected with West Nile Virus do not become ill. In rare cases, WNV can cause severe disease with symptoms such as disorientation, tremors, convulsions, paralysis, in-flammation of the brain, and going into a coma. The Monroe County health department said Thursday that "we are entering a period when risk will increase and continue until the first heavy frost".

There is no specific treatment for West Nile virus other than to treat symptoms. The chickens are used to detect some mosquito-borne illnesses such as West Nile.

Health officials say so far this summer, the virus has been found in 30 different mosquito groups in Salt Lake County alone. "One out of 10 (with neuroinvasive West Nile virus) will die; one out of 10 will have permanent disabilities".

Tests this week confirmed that some mosquitoes in Pardes Hannah, Binyamina, Caesarea, the Menashe Regional Council and the Alona Regional Council (both in the Haifa area) were carriers of the virus.

"Mosquitoes like it when it rains, they are able to reproduce when we have standing water so the past couple days have been quite rainy there is that risk that the rain can bring along another hatch of mosquitoes".
