  • Rhode Island Resident Dies From EEE

It also marks the third death in the United States this year after cases were reported in MA and in MI. Officials announced on August 30 that the person, who has not been identified, had contracted the virus and was in critical condition. Just nine days later, on September 8, the individual had died from the disease.

The CDC says that people over 50 and under 15 years old are more susceptible to the illness, which starts to show symptoms four to ten days after infection.

A horse in Westerly, Rhode Island was diagnosed with EEE and two mosquitoes carrying the disease have been detected have occurred in Central Falls, with two others in Westerly. It can develop into severe encephalitis or brain swelling which can cause tremors, seizures and paralysis.

Sylvia was being treated at Tufts Medical Center in Boston after contracting the unsafe mosquito-borne virus that causes brain swelling in humans, said Jeremy Lechan, Tufts' senior media relations specialist.
