Dallas County First West Nile Death 2018

For the second time this summer West Nile Virus has made an appearance in Lambton County

The Iowa Department of Public Health says West Nile is spread by mosquitoes and can produce symptoms ranging from fever and mild headache to life-threatening inflammation of the brain.

A Dallas resident is the first person to die from West Nile virus this year in Dallas County, health officials announced Tuesday.

They say two pools of mosquitoes tested positive for the virus.

Between 70 percent and 80 percent of people that become infected with West Nile Virus do not develop any symptoms.

The health district said mosquito testing, which began in June is expected to continue through the late fall.

"Controlling an epidemic of WNV infection is a community effort that calls upon residents to take preventative measures to reduce exposure", Ganesh Shivaramaiyer, DCHHS' interim director, said.

Use insect repellent when outdoors; a repellent with DEET or Icaridin offers the most effective protection. Of the 26 Dallas County residents infected a year ago, two died from the mosquito-borne illness.

Lyttle added people are most at risk of contracting West Nile virus during the months of July and August.

They are most active at dawn and dusk and will bite humans as well as other mammals and birds. He's a Dallas native and a graduate of the University of North Texas.
