Plano Reports Its First Human Case Of West Nile Virus This Year

Health Department confirms West Nile case in Lucas County

According to the European Centers for Prevention and Control (ECDC) Romania (66), Italy (34), Greece (24), Hungary (21), Austria (3) and Bulgaria (2) reported new West Nile virus (WNV) cases.

In July, two cases of West Nile virus were reported in Johnson County, Kansas health officials said.

There have been 12 cases of West Nile Virus this summer in Missouri, most of which have been in St. Louis County. He spent 17 days in the hospital in August as doctors did tests to determine the cause for his extreme illness.

For humans, there is no vaccine to prevent West Nile virus, encephalitis or Lyme disease.

City Manager Barry Sullivan says the West Nile positive mosquito was trapped on the 500 block of Davis St, across Lindsay St. Suffolk County reported seven human cases in 2017, five human cases in both 2015 and 2016, one in 2014, and four in both 2011 and 2013. Most infected people won't become ill and fewer than 20 percent of those infected will develop mild symptoms. The infection can be fatal in rare cases.

The McLean County Health Department received notification that a bird had recently tested positive for the mosquito-borne illness in the 61704 zip code which covers south and east Bloomington. Individuals who develop any of these symptoms should see their healthcare provider immediately.

And a pretty costly one at that. "We are just at the point where we're gonna start making decisions about what comes next after J.J.'s", he said .

Some symptoms of Lyme disease may not appear until weeks, months or years after a tick bite, affecting joints, nervous system and heart, said Overholt.

It's also important for residents to eliminate standing water around their homes, an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.

DEET is an ingredient to look for when purchasing insect repellent.

There is no documented evidence that West Nile virus can be transmitted directly between horses to humans.

People are encouraged to report dead birds and squirrels online at www.westnile.ca.gov or by calling 1-877-WNV-BIRD (1-877-968-2473).
