West Nile virus found in Marquette

West Nile virus found in Marquette

West Nile virus has been detected in the state every year since 1999.

The Health Department said the traps were set on June 21 and 22 of 2018 and today they found out about the results from the Ohio Department of Health Laboratory. Water troughs provide excellent mosquito breeding habitats and should be flushed out at least once a week during the summer months to reduce mosquitoes near paddock areas. While WNV can infect people of all ages, people over the age of 50 are at higher risk for severe disease.

WNV is usually transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

"Those people are at a higher risk of developing severe symptoms like a coma, tremors, muscle weakness, and paralysis" Indiana State Health Department Epidemiologist Taryn Stevens said.

About 20 percent of people who become infected with West Nile will develop mild symptoms and about 1 in 150 people will develop serious symptoms, which may include fever, headache, body aches, swollen glands and skin rash, Frankovich said.

GOP compromise immigration bill defeated on House floor
The compromise bill addressed the controversial family separations and the so-called dreamers. The president urged members to back the bill early Wednesday, and said he supports it.

Residents are reminded to protect themselves from mosquito bites and mosquito-borne diseases.

Manitobans can reduce the number of mosquitoes around their homes by eliminating standing water. Instead, people must "fight the bite" to help prevent infection. Approved mosquito repellents have ingredients that include DEET, picaridin, PMD, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus.

If possible, stay indoors during prime mosquito biting times: dusk and dawn.

Wear shoes, socks, long trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt when outdoors for long periods of time, or when mosquitoes are more active. Windows and doors without screens should be kept shut, especially at night. Mosquito Control urges horse owners to vaccinate their horses. Owners should also speak with their veterinarian about mosquito repellents approved for use in animals and vaccinations to prevent WNV and EEE.
