YE AUNG THUYE AUNG THU

Sentinel chickens have tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and nine mosquito pools have tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV) in Norfolk, the Norfolk Department of Health announced Thursday.

States continue to report cases of West Nile Virus, from Boston to Montgomery County in Texas.

Use insect repellants with DEET according to the manufacturer's directions.

Wear long, loose and light-colored clothing.

Health officials recommend reducing mosquitoes around your home by removing any items that hold still water since that's where they lay their eggs. "We are also spraying all street, county rights of way among other mosquito breeding areas", Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack said.

The infected mosquitoes were collected by the Vermont Agency of Agriculture and tested as part of an ongoing interagency mosquito surveillance program that helps the state better understand the risk of diseases spread by mosquitoes. Since 2002, there have been 64 confirmed human cases of West Nile virus in Lake County, as well as two confirmed deaths.

"This is typically the time of the year we expect to see a rise in West Nile Virus activity and this positive mosquito pool confirms that", said Dr. Ruppert.

They add that no humans have tested positive for the virus. "West Nile Virus is a risky disease, particularly for young children and older adults".

"With two mosquito-borne viruses now active in the Coachella Valley, it is more important than ever for people to protect themselves from mosquito bites, " district spokeswoman Jill Oviatt said.

Visible symptoms can install between 5 to 15 day from the mosquitoes bite. The program also monitors reports of dead birds (an early sign of the presence of the virus) and investigates areas of stagnant water for the presence of mosquito larvae, specifically from the Culex mosquito, which is the primary carrier of West Nile in IL.
