West Nile Virus confirmed in North Iowa

So for this year in Ontario, three probable or confirmed human cases of West Nile virus have been reported.

DCHHS said there is now no vaccine or specific treatment for West Nile virus.

Throughout the summer months, public health traps and tests mosquito pools across Oxford County on a weekly basis.

The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has not said precisely where the Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus were found.

The Health Department wants to remind the public that the virus is present and has been around for many years.

Was the assassination attempt on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro real?
Mr Trump's adviser John Bolton stated "unequivocally" "there was no U.S. government involvement in this at all". Those arrested are accused of "terrorism and assassination", Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said Sunday.

A Northwest Dallas resident is the first person to die from West Nile Virus in Dallas County in 2018, Dallas County Health and Human Services said Tuesday. They can be infected when they feed on the blood of infected birds. People older than 50 are most at risk for WNV infection as are those with weakened immune systems.

DCHHS recommends that Dallas County residents use an insect repellent containing DEET whenever they go outside, and that they dress in long, loose and light-colored clothing.

Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk.

Remove standing water around the home at least once a week to reduce mosquito breeding grounds.
