The mosquito was collected in the area of North Market Street, St. Clairsville, on July 26.

There is no specific treatment for West Nile virus infection, and care is based on symptoms. "This is an early start to the transmission season for West Nile Virus, and it is concerning that we could see more cases this year in humans than in past years". The virus is transmitted to mosquitoes that feed off infected birds.

Symptoms of West Nile virus in humans are typically like those of a mild flu, but the virus can lead to a more serious condition that includes swelling of the brain, muscle convulsions, coma, paralysis and death.

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

MS reported 63 West Nile cases and two deaths in 2017.

Drain or dump standing water weekly.

- Limit outdoor activities between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most likely to bite.




The best defense is with an EPA-approved insect repellent.

Wearing light-colored clothing to cover the skin reduces the risk of bites. "Get rid of even small amounts of standing water around your home".

Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. The cases are spread across the state.

Horse owners should be aware of the typical signs of West Nile Virus which include:·.

Two new cases were reported in Hinds County.

The Indiana State Department of Health says the human case was confirmed Monday in Vanderburgh County and that 168 mosquito samples in 27 Indiana counties have tested positive for the virus.
