West Nile Virus detected in multiple places in Ada County

Approximately one in five people develop a fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, diarrhea and a rash, and while most people affected recover, fatigue can last for months.

IHA said while the risk of becoming seriously ill from the West Nile virus is low for most people, those most at risk are the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.

Health officials warn people against keeping standing water on their property and advocating for wearing mosquito repellent.

"I think it's unusual in the sense that we had West Nile in the surrounding counties for a considerable time before we had a detection in Ada County", he said.

Unlike previous years, when West Nile virus was found in both mosquitos and dead birds throughout the county - including the city of Davis - early in the summer, this year has been relatively quiet. EBR Mosquito Abatement will be conducting an aerial spray mission across the area Wednesday night.

The case reported Thursday is the state's first this year.

Health officials around the Valley predicted a large mosquito population this year after heavy winter snowpack and spring rain.

The California Department of Public Health reported that one person has died from the disease in Imperial County.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports the disease killed 167 people previous year.

Also, IHA said any activity that prevents mosquitoes from biting or breeding can help reduce the risk of becoming infected. To sign up for email notifications about spraying, go to spray notifications at the district's website at www.FIGHTtheBITE.net.

Drain Standing Water - Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water. Make sure that doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep mosquitoes out. Those are the times when the mosquitoes that transmit WNV are most active. Health care providers can only treat the symptoms to help patients feel better and possibly recover more quickly.

It bites throughout the day, not just at dawn and dusk like the Culex mosquitoes usually do.
