Human West Nile virus case confirmed in Oklahoma County

Human West Nile virus case confirmed in Oklahoma County

The virus was identified at a mosquito pool in Jamaica Plain, according to the Boston Public Health Commission.

The city's Department of Public Health has detected the first positive tests for Eastern Equine Encephalitis in sentinel chickens and nine mosquito pools have tested positive for West Nile Virus in the city.

Use an outdoor flying insect spray where mosquitoes rest.

Dawn and Dusk: Protect yourself all day and night, and wear repellent outdoors during these prime times for mosquito activity.

Certain species of mosquitoes carry WNV, which, when transmitted to people, can cause West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. Although it may be hard to do when it's hot, wearing long-sleeves, long trousers and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.

Pakistan face Australia in tri-series final
Fakhar Zaman , the opening batsman, notched his highest T20I score of 91 and shepherded his team home. Australia and Pakistan had already qualified for Sunday's final after both won three matches each.

Apply Insect Repellent when you go outdoors. Other "saviors" are eucalyptus and lemon oils. Permethrin products are intended for use on items such as clothing, shoes, bed nets and camping gear and should not be applied to skin.

The commission also advises residents to fix window and door screens, empty standing water from gutters, buckets, pool covers and other places regularly.

To protect yourself against mosquitoes, health officials recommend using insect repellent, repairing torn window screens, wearing long sleeves and trousers, and draining standing water, which mosquitoes use to breed. Check rain gutters and drains.

Clean out birdbaths, wading pools and swimming pools. Properties with these conditions can be reported to the Department of Inspectional Services via the City's customer service center at 508-929-1300. Residents should also make sure that their window and door screens are in good fix to prevent mosquitoes from getting inside. Keep them outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors.
