Douglas County confirms 2017's first case of West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus found in Kent County mosquitoes

During 2016, 13 cases of West Nile virus infection were reported among Wisconsin residents.

"The patient is less than 50 years old with underlying medical conditions and is in serious condition at a Manhattan hospital", the agency reported. Mosquitoes acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds.

The city Health Department detected the infected Culex pipiens mosquitoes in Rossville.

There have been no human cases so far.

Officials said West Nile virus was recently detected along the Delaware River in the Wilmington area and in west-central Kent County, with both instances confirmed by blood samples taken from the caged chickens that are used to detect the virus.

The treatment will provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations, but community members can still do their part to help control mosquitos.

West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

West Nile virus infections in humans have been reported from June through October. Last year, four West Nile virus positive birds were identified in El Dorado County on the western slope. Those who do become ill usually experience mild symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle ache, rash and fatigue.

They're also most active in September.
