County of Orange reports first human West Nile Virus infection of 2018

"Residents should be aware of West Nile Virus and take some simple steps to protect themselves against mosquito bites", said Sarah Ward, Environmental Health Manager. The individual, a 78-year-old resident of Fairfield, was hospitalized but is recovering.

With the discovery of a dead bird that tested positive of West Nile virus in Kenosha County, it's a good time to review the preventive measures that should be taken to prevent its spread.

On August 4, 2018, the first case of WNV infection in New Jersey was reported in Hunterdon County, about 42 miles west of Contagion®'s home base of Cranbury, New Jersey.

Most people (80%) who are infected with West Nile Virus do not get sick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the symptoms of severe cases include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor and disorientation.

The illness can sometimes be fatal with about one out of 150 infected people dying from complications due to the virus.

Several counties around the state are spraying for mosquitoes to reduce the number that could potentially carry the virus.

The health department is continuing a four-month surveillance program to monitor mosquito-borne diseases in Cabell County, which began in late May, conjunction with the West Virginia Office of Laboratory Studies.

Don't go outside when mosquitoes are active (between dusk and dawn). Wearing light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts, pants, socks and a hat is recommended, as is using insect repellent containing DEET or Icaridin.

Wear shoes, socks, long trousers, and long-sleeved shirts. Start around the house and ensure you don't have mosquitoes breeding. The risk usually lasts until the first frost. Additional prevention measures include wearing long-sleeved shirts and long trousers to avoid bites, and draining any items that hold water inside and outside of homes, such as birdbaths, pools, trash containers, and buckets. "Change out water in bird baths and pet watering bowls weekly and place screening on rain barrels". The city is classified as being at a "moderate risk", according to the state Department of Public Health.
