Mosquitoes test positive for West Nile in Clark County

Mosquitoes test positive for West Nile in Clark County

The Georgia Department of Public Health announced Friday that the state has had almost 20 human cases of West Nile virus so far this year, including at least three deaths.

The first case in Clark County this year was reported in May and resulted in the death of a man over age 50.

"This is an important reminder to stay vigilant and protect against mosquito bites throughout the summer and into the fall", said Dr. Eden Wells, chief medical executive at the MDHHS. "August and September are peak periods of West Nile virus transmission in the state so we urge everyone to take every possible precaution to protect themselves against mosquito bites".

In most instances, people infected with the West Nile virus either show no symptoms or relatively mild symptoms, including fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash. If people have symptoms and suspect West Nile virus infection, they should contact their healthcare provider.

In 2017, West Nile virus activity appears to be widespread statewide in MI. Among the approved repellents are DEET, picaridin, IR3535 and oil of lemon eucalyptus/para-menthane-diol. For reasons of confidentiality, the California Department of Public Health does not provide additional patient details, including demographic information or the names of hospital providing care.

Dress with long sleeves, long trousers and closed-toe shoes when outside. People with milder illnesses typically recover on their own, although symptoms may last for several weeks. Four horses have tested positive in the following counties: Bourbon, Franklin, Hart and Russell. Horse owners should work with their veterinarian to make sure their horse is properly vaccinated.

Local health departments set traps to collect mosquitoes.

People spending time outdoors are advised to wear mosquito repellant and treating their clothing with permethrin products to prevent bites. In 2016, there were two confirmed cases in Ontario.
