West Nile Virus Detected In Stanley County Mosquitoes

West Nile Virus Detected In Stanley County Mosquitoes

Danville's health officer, Eric Bach, reported Tuesday that mosquitoes collected in Danville have tested positive for West Nile virus, according to the Vermont Department of Health.

Of the 14 mosquito traps run by the Will County Health Department, nine of the 500 mosquitoes captured were carrying the virus.

The department notes that when the virus is transmitted to humans through mosquito bites, most people don't get sick, but some get symptoms like fever, joint pain, vomiting and diarrhea. He says just because West Nile Virus hasn't been detected where you live, doesn't mean it's not there. Scrub and refill pet water dishes and bird baths regularly.

The health district says these are the first positive tests in Washoe County in 2018.

Facebook's tally of second-quarter global daily active users, a key metric for tracking user engagement, rose 11% to 1.47 billion. But it forecast that Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, would add about 1.6 million users in that age range in 2018.

The announcement came one day after the state's department of health announced the first confirmed, locally acquired case of the virus in Maryland this year.

The index provides residents with a current snapshot of West Nile virus activity, ranging from zero to three, with zero being no activity and three announcing multiple human cases of the virus in DuPage County.

Officials said fewer than one per cent of those exposed to the virus will develop more severe infections.
