Two deaths from West Nile virus reported in Greece

Two deaths from West Nile virus reported in Greece

Fortunately, most people infected with WNV do not feel sick.

Philip Armstrong the director of the mosquito trapping program here in CT told us West Nile virus is usually detected earlier in the season, but theres still plenty of time to see more cases.

The West Nile virus has not surfaced in Sanpete County this year, according to Kristina Winkel, a public health nurse with the CUPHD.

The West Nile virus has been detected in CT every summer for the past 30 years.

While Kennedy said not all mosquitoes carry the virus, it's important for Albertans to avoid being bitten at all to reduce the chance of infection.

"It's something that you can't see, you know, and then you get it", Ray said.

"Our message to the public is that West Nile virus is here, but it is preventable", Dr. Joe Iser, the Health District's chief health officer, said in a statement.

"It's a tough thing for people to look out for - it shares a lot of symptoms with many other viruses and bacteria", she said. Symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, nausea, or a skin rash. "But non-neurological cases form the vast majority, 458 of the 532 cases". The Southern Nevada Health District said three more people have tested positive in the last few days. When using mosquito repellent, district officials said, residents should be mindful that they may need to apply more over the course of an evening.

Sherman says he is encouraged by steps taken by AHS to share West Nile warnings this year directly with 60 municipalities in the region instead of relying on third-hand social media sharing and canned press releases about the general dangers of the disease.

"Health Link is a really good source of information", she said, "especially if someone is experiencing symptoms or a loved one is experiencing symptoms and wants an opinion on whether or not to seek further medical care".
