Six West Nile samples found in four Valley counties

The moquito species known to carry the incurable West Nile virus has been spotted in Saskatchewan

A Manhattan resident who is older than 50 was infected with mosquito-borne virus and hospitalized earlier this month with encephalitis, health officials said.

The mosquitoes were collected off North Spring Court, near Campbell and Jupiter roads, according to Garland health officials. No human cases have been detected as of now, and it's actually not that uncommon for West Nile to be spotted around these parts - it happens every year.

As of June 27, mosquitoes in Elkhart County and Carroll County have tested positive for West Nile virus. Mosquitoes are infected with the virus by biting an infected bird.

Apply an EPA-registered insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or para-menthane-diol to clothes and exposed skin. "To reduce the chance of infection, all New Yorkers - including residents living in Manhattan - should use mosquito repellent, cover arms and legs when outdoors, get rid of standing water, and install window screens". Symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches and joint pains.

In rare cases West Nile virus can cause paralysis or death.

"The findings from our mosquito surveillance and the early West Nile virus case serve as vital reminders that mosquito season is here and that all New Yorkers should take precautions to protect themselves and their families from mosquito bites", health commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said. Some carry illnesses that may spread to humans. Always follow the product label instructions. Once a week, empty out items that hold water such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, pet bowls, flowerpots, and trash containers. Treat standing water that can not be eliminated with a mosquito larvicide.

A warning - Dawn and Dusk are times to avoid outdoors.

Be sure door and window screens are tight-fitting and in good fix.

Saskatchewan's last major West Nile outbreak occurred in 2007 when just over 70 serious cases were reported.
