First Mosquitoes With West Nile Virus Found In N.H. This Season”

The virus, which can be transferred to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito, was first identified in the state in 2000.

Five additional West Nile virus cases were reported in Miami-Dade County Thursday. There are no vaccines to prevent or medications to treat WNV infections in people.

McLean County is one of 17 counties in IL with confirmed West Nile activity.

In rare cases, symptoms include high fever, severe headache, muscle weakness, stiff neck, confusion, tremors, numbness and sensitivity to light. For more information on mosquito prevention techniques, visit this link.

As with many illnesses, from listeria to COVID-19, senior citizens and people with damaged immune systems are most likely to get the worst from West Nile virus.

These are the first positive tests of the season reported by the Chatham-Kent public health unit.

Once the presence of the virus has been confirmed, Hyland said district staff inform city officials and then notify the public of their findings online and through social media channels.

Symptoms typically appear between two and 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito. Officials said the last human case of West Nile virus in New Hampshire was in an adult in 2017. Health officials say a very small percentage of those infected with West Nile virus suffer from serious illnesses, including meningitis or encephalitis.
