Eastern Equine Encephalitis reported in Ocean County horse”

A day after reporting three new West Nile virus cases in the Las Vegas valley, the Southern Nevada Health District added another one.

Iran's Health Ministry has taken precaution against the spread of West Nile virus (WNV) in the country.

Mosquitoes throughout Pueblo have West Nile virus, and this can be a danger to folks, "mentioned Chad Wolgram program supervisor at the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment".

- No symptoms in most people. Although there have been no cases of WNV reported to KDHE in 2019, there have been over 300 cases of the most severe form of WNV and 30 deaths in Kansas from 1999-2018.

Unfortunately, the state of Arizona is the leading state in 2019. In addition, mosquitoes collected in Sedgwick County have tested positive for WNV and St. Louis Encephalitis virus (SLEV). It is most commonly spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds, which circulate the virus in their blood for a few days. To optimize safety and effectiveness, repellents should be used according to the label instructions.

Dress: If spending time outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up with long-sleeved shirts, pants, shoes and socks. Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing and it's recommended to also spray your clothes with repellent.

Meanwhile, mosquitoes carrying West Nile have been spotted near the central Utah city of Aurora.

Drain: Get rid of standing water in pools, ponds, tires or other objects holding water which can serve as mosquito breeding sites.

Keep doors, windows, and screens in good condition and make sure they fit tightly.

EEE and West Nile virus, like other viral diseases affecting horses' neurological system, must be reported to the state veterinarian at 609-671-6400 within 48 hours of diagnosis.

About 1 out of 150 infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, illness.
