  • West Nile Virus Found In Windsor

Most mosquito bites are harmless, and the worst thing about them is the incessant itchy feeling that accompanies the bite, but some are risky.

Mosquito bites in summer are nothing new, but with mosquitoes in five counties testing positive for West Nile virus it is important for people to be aware of the risks of not property protecting themselves.

"The first case of 2018 is a reminder that each year we have WNV cases in MS and that all Mississippians need to act now to reduce their risk of infection regardless of where they live in the state", he said.

The Health Unit, along with each municipality, will continue to monitor for West Nile Virus activity. Only about one in every 150 people who contract West Nile will end up with a case this severe.

In addition to birds and humans, horses are also affected by West Nile virus.

And as this chart shows, cases can go from near zero to triple digits in the space of a year, with southern Alberta steadily reporting the most cases since West Nile was first found in the province. It's been reported in other countries for more than 50 years. Mosquitos can contract the virus after feeding on an infected bird, and then pass the virus on to any human it bites. Most people who end up with West Nile get it from a mosquito bite.

Minor, non-neurological symptoms include fever, chills, nausea and fatigue while serious, neurological symptoms include tremors, drowsiness, unconsciousness, paralysis and even death.
