West Nile Virus Found In Windsor

MGN Online

That's the message from Alberta Health Services as the warm weather brings out more mosquitoes. Most mosquito bites are harmless, and the worst thing about them is the incessant itchy feeling that accompanies the bite, but some are unsafe. West Nile Virus is active throughout the State of California.

Just a few weeks into the official summer season and mosquitos, people and animals across 30 states have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

"The first case of 2018 is a reminder that each year we have WNV cases in MS and that all Mississippians need to act now to reduce their risk of infection regardless of where they live in the state", he said.

At this time, no human cases of the virus have been confirmed in any Coastal Health District county, including Chatham. This is also called West Nile encephalitis or meningitis.

Alberta saw seven cases of the virus past year compared to the five seen in 2016 and between 2003 and 2017, a total of 514 cases were reported in the province.

What Is West Nile Virus?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are no vaccines available to prevent West Nile virus (WNV) or medications available to treat it.

Starting second on the grid, Vettel benefitted from Hamilton's slow start to stay ahead until the final laps of the race. Vettel, who had assumed the lead into the first corner following Hamilton's leaden getaway, was the clear beneficiary.

Some people who contract West Nile develop neurological syndrome, which can be deadly. Mosquitoes contract the virus when they feed on infected birds, then spread the virus when the mosquitoes seek other hosts to bite.

What Are the Symptoms of West Nile?

"Fortunately, most people infected with WNV do not have symptoms". The incubation period for the virus is anywhere from three days to two weeks.

Symptoms include fever, headache and body aches.

Severe symptoms and signs may include stiff neck, coma, convulsions, and paralysis.

It can take weeks or months for a person to recover from a West Nile virus infection, according to the CDC.
