New Hanover County's Vector Control Division monitors mosquito populations across the County including using larvicides to target larvae and breeding locations. It's the most common virus transmitted by mosquitoes, and cases pick up right around this time of the year. "The public should not be alarmed, but should be vigilant in protecting themselves from mosquito bites".

Two residents have been diagnosed with West Nile virus in West Cambridge and North Cambridge, the city's Public Health Department reported Thursday, though the risk of infection statewide is deemed to be low.

So far this year, WNV activity has been detected in 10 counties.

West Nile virus is a potentially-serious illness that is usually spread to animals and humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. 36 states are reporting infections in people, birds, and mosquitoes.

Currently, there are no vaccines to prevent West Nile or medications to treat the virus. "Residents should take added precautions to avoid mosquito bites, such as wearing repellent or protective clothing in the evening, fixing screens, and eliminating standing water on their property".

Mosquitoes will be active until the first hard frost, which occurs typically in early November, experts said.

West Nile virus is the leading cause of mosquito-borne disease in the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. In 2006, Idaho had more WNV illnesses than any other state, with nearly 1,000 infections and 23 deaths. Others will have flu-like symptoms, such as fever, headache and body aches. Most people with this type of WNV disease recover completely, but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months.

Those most at risk of severe illness from West Nile Virus include those with pre-existing medical conditions and older adults.

About one in 150 people infected develop a severe illness affecting the central nervous system such as encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord).
