First Case of Human West Nile Reported in Lincoln County

West Nile Virus reported in Monroe County

State and local health officials are advising residents to continue to protect themselves against mosquito bites due to the state's first human case of West Nile virus (WNV) this year.

A crow found in Washtenaw County has tested positive for West Nile virus, health officials said.

As of August 10, the virus had been found in 33 California counties, compared to 31 counties a year ago.

Maragos said the Ohio Department of Health gathered mosquitoes from five locations in Jefferson County for testing, including three in Steubenville, one in Toronto and one in Irondale.

Some mosquitoes in Canada can spread West Nile virus to humans through mosquito bites.

Every Alisson touch against Crystal Palace
Today we were not brilliant but we still won. "There's some comfort that we made it hard for Liverpool , and some pride". When Kompany was at his best three years ago, I didn't think there was a centre-back that was better than him.

Marc Maragos, director of environmental health, told the health board Tuesday morning that the increase in cases is trending toward the worst recent year, 2012. Precautions include making sure door and window screens don't have holes; wearing long clothes and using mosquito repellent; and making sure the yard doesn't hold any standing water where mosquitoes might breed - even a bottle cap.

-Repair: Keep mosquitoes outside. Empty any unused flowerpots and wading pools, and change the water in birdbaths frequently.

Cover up your exposed skin with long trousers and long sleeves.

WNV is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito and is not transmitted person to person. DEET-free products (such as those containing icardin, p-menthane-3, 8-diol /lemon-eucalyptus oil, or soybean oil) are also available, but may not provide as long-lasting protection.

Mosquitoes have tested positive for the West Nile virus. More severe cases can involve the central nervous system. Symptoms include high fever, vision loss, paralysis, tremors and coma. But, according to the CDC, over-the-counter pain medication can help treat fever and other minor symptoms.
