West Nile Virus found in Kent County mosquitoes

2014 0705 mosquito

Confirmation of the first West Nile virus positive bird means the virus is circulating between birds and mosquitoes and there is heightened risk of infection in humans.

In mid-June, the season's first West Nile-infected mosquitoes were found on Staten Island.

State officials say two mosquito-borne viruses that carry potentially serious health risks for humans have been detected in so-called sentinel chickens in DE for the first time this year. "We will not be able to completely eradicate West Nile virus from the mosquito population, but we can reduce human transmission and save lives".

West Nile virus can be transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Iheanacho to Lead City's Attack against Arsenal
Asked if Giroud could still leave before the transfer window closes on August 31 until January, Wenger replied: "No". Again a set-piece proved Arsenal's undoing as Mahrez's in-swinging corner from the right was nodded in by Vardy.


To report mosquito problems or stagnant pools of water, call the Department of Public Works' Vector Control Division at 631-852-4270.

West Nile virus has made its way into Wilmington and west-central Kent County.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has monitored the spread of West Nile virus since 2001 among wild birds, horses, mosquitoes and humans. During 2016, 13 cases of West Nile virus infection were reported among Wisconsin residents.

So far in DE this year, no cases of WNV or EEE have been found in humans or horses. Symptoms of more severe illness can also include changes in mental status and muscle weakness.
