  • West Nile Virus found in mosquitoes in Perth County traps

CT environmental officials say a hawk that attacked people may have been suffering from neurological issues related to West Nile virus.

Symptoms of West Nile include joint pain, headaches, muscle aches, nausea and a stiff neck.

West Nile Virus affects humans, equines, and birds.

One human case of the mosquito-borne illness was confirmed in DE last year, and that was the first such case in two years. This makes it important for residents to evaluate yards on a weekly basis and eliminate standing water.

Officials say most of the mosquito-borne infections happen from July to December.

Use insect repellent when outdoors; a repellent with DEET or Icaridin offers the most effective protection.

"If you develop a fever or other symptoms after being bitten by a mosquito, you should contact your health care provider", SC State epidemiologist Dr. Linda Bell said.

Mosquito Control placed live chickens in several locations throughout Kenner to perform regular testing for West Nile, according to the report.

The following year, the first human cases and deaths were reported.

The North Dakota Department of Health has seen a rise in reported West Nile virus cases in the past week and is reminding people to continue taking precautions against mosquito bites that can cause WNV infection. West Nile virus is now established in OH where cases occur each year and seasonal epidemics can flare up under certain conditions in the summer and continue into the fall. They say that someone with symptoms has recently been released from a local medical facility.
