The first confirmation of West Nile virus in Northampton County this year came Tuesday, with a report from the state's West Nile Virus Control Program indicating that a mosquito tested in the City of Easton tested positive for it. Yolo County last week saw two active samples in mosquitoes.

The Health Department said Monday a 42-year-old woman from Dona Ana County contracted the mosquito-borne virus and is recovering after being hospitalized.

It is a disease only transmitted through the bite infected mosquitoes. In 2017, there were 33 cases, with one reported death.

The department says 74 counties in IL previous year reported a West Nile virus positive mosquito batch, bird, horse, or a human case.

Symptoms of WNV infection are often mild and may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, a rash, muscle weakness or swollen lymph nodes.

In rare cases, the virus can lead to encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the membranes around the brain and spinal cord).

Residents can protect themselves by using insect repellent containing DEET, draining standing water around homes and wearing long-sleeve shirts and trousers.

Use window and door screens and fix any holes in screens to help keep mosquitoes outside.

According to district spokesman Aaron Devencenzi, eradication is extremely hard because the mosquitoes are able to lay their eggs in standing water as small as a capful of water, and once they are laid, they are viable even without water present for up to six months.
