Ministry of health warns of harmful effects of West Nile Virus

The first human case of West Nile virus in the metro area for the 2018 season was confirmed Friday by the New York City Health Department. In the USA, it was first identified in wild birds in Indiana in 2001; up to now, it has been found in "most states along the eastern coast and east of the Mississippi River", according to the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH). With no known vaccine or cure for humans, Curry said preventing mosquito bites is the best defence.

About 80 percent of people who become infected with the virus never develop symptoms, which are fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash.

Mosquito control crews are also trapping adult mosquitoes and testing certain species for West Nile Virus.
