So far this year, one person in Butte County has been confirmed to have the west nile virus, but the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District predicts there will be several more cases this year.
"The two pools, or two trap sites that were positive, were found within the City of Kitchener, but really what it means is that conditions are right anywhere across the region", Miller said. The first mosquitoes to test positive this year for West Nile were found in late May in Glenview and Morton Grove.
Cases generally tend to spike during the summer and fall months, between June and September, when activity is the most common. Officials say that 284 pools tested positive - nearly 100 more than at this time a year ago. "These factors indicate that the risk for human West Nile virus infections is elevated and will likely remain elevated through the remainder of August". In severe cases, the virus can cause paralysis or death. Of those who develop a serious illness from the virus, one in 10 die, according to officials.
Experts recommend using insect repellent, avoiding the peak mosquito feeding times of dawn and dusk and wearing loose fitting clothing.
The Cape Cod Times reports that state Department of Health said Thursday 14 mosquito samples from Falmouth, Barnstable, Dennis, Bourne and Yarmouth tested positive for the virus after being trapped Tuesday and July 31.
