West Nile Virus Found in Mosquitoes in Worcester, Auburn

West Nile Virus Found in Mosquitoes in Worcester, Auburn

The department on Thursday told the city that collections from Worcester and Auburn carried West Nile Virus.

No human cases of West Nile have been reported in Montgomery County in 2018.

Insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus are effective but should be used with care.

Cover exposed skin with long trousers and long-sleeved shirts whenever possible.

Drain: Drain standing water from items around your home, yard, and business. "We are also spraying all street, county rights of way among other mosquito breeding areas", Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said.

For more information about protecting your family against mosquitoes, call the Oswego County Health Department at 315-349-3547 or 1-800-596-3200, ext.

Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane
It is said Beryl will "degenerate into a trough of low pressure" as it moves into the eastern caribbean sea by Monday. Tropical Storm Chris is expected to bring swell and showers to Bermuda towards the middle of this week.

West Nile virus is transmitted to humans via a mosquito bite and can lead to serious illness, though most people infected have no symptoms, the BPHC said.

Last month, the health department announced that mosquitoes in Oklahoma County had tested positive for the virus. "Just one bite from an infected mosquito could change your future".

"It is typical to find West Nile Virus in Boston at this time of year due to the periods of hot weather", BPHC Medical Director Jennifer Lo said.

A little over three weeks after a consortium of public health officials gathered in the Texas Rio Grande Valley to discuss strategies for controlling mosquito-borne diseases, like Zika virus and West Nile Virus, rain-soaked South Texas is now experiencing a full-fledge explosion of mosquito populations, spawning quick action by city and county governments to step up vector control efforts to slow and hopefully control the invasion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all residents of areas where virus activity has been identified are at risk of getting West Nile encephalitis.
