First 2018 human case of West Nile Virus reported in MI

A Mid-Michigan blood donor tested positive for West Nile virus. The department's anti-mosquito campaign is dubbed "Fight the Bite". Loose fitting, light colored clothing is best.

The health unit says Londoners shouldn't drop their guard against mosquitoes and should ensure standing water is removed from yards. Most people who become infected do not develop symptoms.

The insects were captured on July 24.

"Mosquito-borne illness is a threat to take seriously during summer until well into September", the post read. There are no vaccines or medications to treat West Nile.

Greg Lakin, KDHE's chief medical officer, said in a statement Tuesday afternoon that most cases of West Nile are not serious.

Rigler said you can take steps to keep you and your family safe outdoors. "With the temperatures we're seeing here, that's not really feasible for a lot of people" she said. "DEET-containing insect repellents are a really good idea if you're going to be ... outside at all".

The key species of mosquitoes in Arizona are Western encephalitis mosquito, Culex tarsalis and Aedes aegypti (ae).

The virus was detected in mosquitoes from several CT towns this summer, including Bethany, Franklin, Greenwich, Madison, New Haven, Waterford, West Haven and Weston. "Current high levels of trapped mosquitoes and field surveillance surveys suggest a very active season for WNV".

Kingston Township's email offered the following tips for residents to reduce mosquito population by removing potential breeding areas. Drain stagnant pools, puddles, ditches or swampy places. Turn wading pools upside down when not in use.

Also, residents are reminded to dispose of water-holding containers in their yards, like ceramic pots, used tires, and tire swings, and clean out gutters.
