First human case of West Nile virus detected in Utah County

Once bitten, twice shy Declaring World War M

Clermont County Public Health will conduct an environmental assessment in the affected area and implement mosquito control measures.

Northeast Tri County Health District has been advised of one area horse that has tested positive for West Nile virus.

A single case of California serogroup encephalitis has occurred in Ripley County.

"There's 60 species of mosquitoes and we're anxious about six of them", Mangan said.

The mosquito-borne disease was first discovered in DNREC's sentinel chickens, and has since been reported in a DE horse.

"These two cases are the first two that we know for sure came from Oklahoma County", said Phil Maytubby, director of public health protection for the OCCHD. The illness is transmitted to people by infected mosquitoes.


Use an EPA-approved insect repellent every time they go outside and follow the instructions on the label.

Defend yourself - use repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus. Standing water in these basins can provide a prime location for mosquito larvae to develop, according to Rogers. Many factors impact the number of mosquitoes that spread the virus, such as weather and human behavior. Be sure to use insect repellent and wear long sleeves and trousers at these times or consider staying indoors during these hours. "So far, we have not received any reported cases of human infection from West Nile virus". Symptoms can last from a few days through several weeks. A 44-year-old man from Clermont County is recovering from the West Nile virus infection and did not require hospitalization.

About 80 percent infected will not show symptoms, but common signs include fever, rash, body aches, headache and stiff neck. Some of these symptoms can cause permanent damage. In Stanislaus County West Nile Virus typically starts to appear in April or May and will continue to have a presence through October. Los Angeles has seen the highest numbers of infected people in the state. In 2006, two people died from the disease.

Once the researchers have collected enough blood samples that are positive for West Nile antibodies, they will use them to determine if the West Nile antibodies enhance or inhibit Zika virus infection.

Vaccinations for horses are available at most veterinary clinics for larger animals.
