  • Rockland issues warning about the West Nile virus

The commission also advises residents to fix window and door screens, empty standing water from gutters, buckets, pool covers and other places regularly. The effort intends to combat the propagation of virus carrying mosquitoes around the Rio Grande Valley. But understanding the mosquito is required to develop effective strategies to control them.

The infected mosquitoes were collected by the Vermont Agency of Agriculture and tested as part of an ongoing interagency mosquito surveillance program that helps the state better understand the risk of diseases spread by mosquitoes.

Most people bitten do not get sick.

"In 2017, there were six human cases of West Nile virus confirmed in Lake County", said Mark Pfister, Executive Director for the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center.

The Norfolk Department of Public Health has detected positive tests for Eastern Equine Encephalitis in sentinel chickens, and nine mosquito pools tested positive for West Nile Virus in the city of Norfolk.

4 of 12 Boys Trapped in Thailand Cave Have Been Rescued
The first stage of the mission ran "smoothly" and the rescued boys were in "good health", according to the Thai authorities. The four have not yet been able to see their parents, nor their friends, as they undergo medical examination.

In 2017, only 18 horse and mules had contracted the disease, but in 2016 that number peaked at 138 animals; 380 nationwide. "We need to educate the homeowner and our communities".

Olivares said an aggressive policy of preventing and correcting standing water is necessary, along with keeping lawns and pastures well maintained and mowed regularly and free of debris, especially of items that could collect water.

DSHA Commissioner Dr. John Hellerstedt agrees. If you think you have symptoms of West Nile Virus, see your doctor right away. "However, people should still take simple precautions to avoid mosquito bites".

Use EPA-approved insect repellent each time they go outside. Although it may be hard to do when it's hot, wearing long-sleeves, long trousers and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.

Make sure window screens are in good fix. Use wire mesh with holes smaller than an adult mosquito.
