Symptoms of the virus include high fever, confusion, muscle weakness and a severe headache. In 2018 in MI there were nine deaths and 104 incidents of severe illness from the virus - which include meningitis and encephalitis.

The best way to prevent West Nile is to prevent being bitten by mosquitoes.

Illness from the virus can happy to anyone but people working outside and citizens over 60 years old have a higher risk of getting sick.

People who work in outdoor occupations or like to spend time outdoors are at increased risk for West Nile virus infection from mosquito bites. "We urge Michiganders to take precautions such as using insect repellant wearing long-sleeved shirts and long trousers when outdoors during those time periods". However, they may become ill 3 - 15 days after the bite of an infected mosquito.

The most common diseases spread by mosquitos in OH include West Nile and La Crosse viruses.

Mosquitoes pick up the virus by feeding on an infected bird and then transmit it by biting you. Nationally, there were over 2,500 cases of the virus and 137 deaths in 2018. As summer temperatures rise, mosquitoes and the virus develop more quickly so it is important to protect yourself from mosquito bites as the weather warms. Fix or replace screens that have tears or other openings.
