Dead birds had West Nile - BC News

Louisiana reports there have been 31 residents with unsafe nervous system infections and 13 cases of flu-like West Nile fever.

Ohio's Department of Health said Tuesday two horses in Northeast Ohio tested positive for the virus that is transmitted through bites from infected mosquitoes.

The Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee has scheduled an emergency session for this coming Sunday to discuss the current outbreak of West Nile virus in Israel.

It's working with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control and Canadian Blood Services to monitor virus activity, including screening the blood supply and reporting human and animal cases.

Dr. Monica Bharel, the state public health commissioner, says conditions are ideal for mosquito species carrying the virus to breed because of the hot and humid weather and frequent heavy rainfall. Remove pools of standing water around living areas and work spaces where mosquitoes breed and lay eggs.

The warning comes from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station which has found West Nile Virus mosquitoes infected in town. The public is encouraged to continue to alert district officials when they come across dead birds, so the district can track the spread of the virus.

According to the CDC, about one in five people infected by the West Nile virus develops symptoms including headache, fever, vomiting and muscle pain. In rare cases West Nile may cause encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain.

People are encouraged to take appropriate precautions to protect themselves against mosquito bites.

Because horses are also at risk for West Nile, health officials encourage horse owners to check with their veterinarians for vaccination.
