A dead bird found in Santa Cruz County tested positive for West Nile Virus, county health officials said Friday.

Last year, there were 68 human cases in Nebraska, including two deaths.

The department also confirmed the first mosquitoes to test positive for West Nile virus in IL for 2018.

Four out of five people who become infected with West Nile virus won't have any symptoms. The department reported hot June temperatures are contributing to increasing numbers of mosquitoes and the increased risk of virus transmission to humans, but so far this season, activity is within expected levels. During the 2017 season, the Illinois Department of Public Health reported 90 human cases, including eight deaths, the department's release stated.

Department of Public Health issued the following announcement on June 23. Often there are no symptoms, but those older than 60 are more likely to die or to develop a severe illness.

Some mosquitoes in Canada can spread the West Nile virus to humans from infected corvid birds (crows, ravens, magpies, and jays).

To avoid contracting the virus, people should wear long-sleeved shirts, trousers and socks to prevent mosquito bites, use buy repellent, limit time spent outdoors during the dawn and dusk hours when mosquitoes are most active and drain standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

DAWN AND DUSK - Mosquitoes that transmit WNV usually bite in the early morning and evening, so it is important to wear proper clothing and repellent if outside during these times. Try to keep doors and windows shut.

There are steps you can take to reduce or eliminate standing water on your property, which will lessen the number of mosquitoes. DHHS and LLCHD encourage citizens to report dead birds to the agencies, so the birds can be tested.
