  • West Nile Virus found in mosquitoes in Perth County traps

Niagara Region PublicHealth has received its first report of West Nile Virus (WNV) in mosquitoes in2018.

No human cases have been reported so far.

Nineteen municipalities this year, including Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury and Bridgeport, have had mosquitoes that tested positive. However, if you do see symptoms such as fever, headache, tiredness, body aches or skin rash, seek medical attention.

"I know it might be uncomfortable, considering the heat", said Natalie Kwit, State Public Health Veterinarian with the Vermont Department of Health, "but you should wear long sleeves and long trousers when outside".

-Properly dispose of items around your property that hold water, such as tin cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots, or discarded tires. The infected mosquitoes can then transmit WNV to humans and animals.

Most people are infected in OH by the northern house mosquito, Culex pipiens.

The disease, which has infected more than 150 people in the past six years, is on track to pose an unusually higher-than-normal risk this year and is widespread throughout the commonwealth, having already been found in 51 Pennsylvania counties as of August 1, including Dauphin.

DEET All Day, Every Day: Whenever you're outside, use insect repellents that contain DEET or other EPA approved repellents and follow instructions. "When you get a lot of rain it produces a lot of habitat for mosquitoes to reproduce themselves, and when you have a lot of heat they do that more quickly".

While some of the tropical viruses spreading into the United States are a result of climate change, West Nile Virus most likely came to the United States via global travel or trade, said Kwit.

For more information, go to www.westnile.state.pa.us. Between May and September of 2017, Ada County officials confirmed that 73 pools of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile.

Most people infected with West Nile Virus do not have any signs or symptoms.

To date, DCHHS has reported three human WNV cases year to date.

The best defense against WNV is bite prevention.
