Dallas Reports 1st Death From West Nile Virus During 2018

State officials announce 10 new human cases of West Nile virus

A spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Health confirmed the death to Fox News on Friday, noting his passing marked the state's first West Nile-related death this year.

In Terrebonne, five mosquito samples have tested positive for West Nile this year through September 8, and four others turned up a similar disease called St. Louis encephalitis. Mosquitoes can breed in any place that holds water, including clogged drains or gutters, watering cans and empty bottles. About one in five who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms.

A Lodi, New Jersey man recently infected with the West Nile virus died Saturday, state health officials said.

The Department of Public Health has detected more mosquitos carrying West Nile Virus, keeping the risk level for contracting the virus at a moderate level.

Now, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health is spreading the word about the West Nile virus' presence in the city and asking for the public's help combatting the further spread of the disease. During 2017, 51 cases of West Nile virus infection were reported among Wisconsin residents. No human cases of either illness have been reported.

Jags Week 2 inactives: DE Calais Campbell to play vs. Patriots
New England cashed in with Brady tossing a 7-yard scoring pass to Hogan to pull within 14 points with 1:42 left in the quarter. Robinson hurt his knee in the first quarter of the game and an MRI taken Sunday night confirmed the extent of the injury.

"About 1 in 150 people who are infected develop a severe illness affecting the central nervous system such as encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord)", according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. "But it is not the end of the mosquito season".

In 2017, there were six human cases of West Nile virus infection identified in MA.

The first 2018 infection in Pa. was reported in July in Allegheny County, and since then, more than two dozen have since been reported, including the 11 in the Philadelphia region.

Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, birdbaths, old vehicle tires, rain gutters and pet bowls. Wearing long-sleeved clothes, and staying indoors at dawn, dusk and in the early evening can also reduce the risk of potential West Nile infections from mosquito bites.
