West Nile Virus found in some mosquitoes in Portsmouth, Ohio area

West Nile Virus found in some mosquitoes in Portsmouth, Ohio area

Dr. Tim Hilderman, a medical officer of health with Manitoba Health, said Thursday the child has been released from hospital and is at home doing well.

The case comes amid what the health department called a "surge" in mosquitoes infected with the virus across the county.

The man - who is the first confirmed human case of West Nile in Idaho this year - fell ill but has since recovered, SWDH spokesperson Katrina Williams told KTVB.

Fairfax County health officials said they've seen a "large increase" in mosquitoes carrying the virus.

Public housing agencies must have a smoke free policy in place
The new rule by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development includes a ban on smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes. Housing authorities, including Memphis, have said they have met with tenants and will work with people to kick the habit.

Three mosquito pools have tested positive for the West Nile virus in Peel Region, a spokesperson for Peel Public Health confirms. In Virginia, there were 13, and in the District, there were four. Less than 1 percent of those people contracting the virus will develop severe symptoms.

According to the July 24 report, state officials have reported the virus in humans, mosquitoes, birds and sentinel and veterinary animals in a total of 36 states, including Alabama, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas. Those most susceptible are people 50 years old and older and those whose immunity is suppressed because of a disease such as cancer or diabetes.

West Nile Virus affects the nervous system and some mild symptoms include fever, headaches and muscle aches that can last days to weeks.

"However, this can change from week to week and we urge people to protect themselves and do their part to reduce the spread of mosquito populations in their neighbourhoods and communities by removing standing water".
