DHEC: Mosquitoes, bird test positive for West Nile in Greenville Co

DHEC: Mosquitoes, bird test positive for West Nile in Greenville Co

Ripley and Franklin Counties have previously had mosquitoes test positive for West Nile virus. In addition, 86 WNV positive mosquito pools have been detected in seven MI counties.

People over 50 and those with weak immune systems are most at risk.

However, another study published the following year in the same journal also examined cases of neuroinvasive West Nile virus in the areas affected by Katrina, finding that no cases were reported in Louisiana in the 3 weeks before Katrina made landfall, but 11 cases were reported 3 weeks after.

CPH officials say their first human case of West Nile does not mean the virus is present in St. Lawrence County. The only other county with positive pool tests was York, with two.

DHEC said most people infected with West Nile are bitten by an infected mosquito. The two others sickened by West Nile virus were from Oakland and Macomb counties. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or getting rid of items that hold water. Symptoms of the disease include fever, chills, headache, neck pain and stiffness, joint pain and stiffness, and mental confusion, noted Dr. Soule.

Minimize time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535 according to label instructions to keep mosquitoes from biting you.

Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home. Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing. So, it is advised that if people experience any symptoms of West Nile Virus then they should immediately contact the nearest healthcare provider.

Wear clothing that reduces the risk of skin exposure to mosquito bites (i.e., long trousers and long-sleeved shirts). However, mosquitoes can reproduce anywhere there's standing water. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change water in birdbaths frequently.
