Second Flower Mound resident diagnosed with West Nile Fever

Mosquito trap

Lake County's first confirmed case of West Nile virus has been detected in a 70 years old Grayslake woman this year.

Residents of Patterson can expect increased spraying for mosquitos from Cajun Mosquito Control after the Louisiana State University Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab confirmed a positive West Nile chicken within the city limits.

Most people infected don't get sick, and those who do usually experience mild symptoms.

The recommendations for reducing the likelihood of contracting a California serogroup virus are much the same as avoiding West Nile virus. Hot weather, abandoned swimming pools and standing water create ideal conditions for the development of mosquitoes and the subsequent spread of the virus.

Checking doors and window screens for holes and gaps, wearing long trousers and long-sleeved shirts, and using mosquito repellent can help prevent against bites as well, they said.

West Nile virus causes a potentially serious illness related to Japanese Encephalitis and Saint Louis encephalitis. "However, some may become ill approximately three to 15 days after the bite of an infected mosquito", the statement added.

When people do show symptoms, they can mimic those of flu or what people call "stomach flu", Dr. Soule noted. Symptoms can include a headache, fatigue, skin rash, swollen lymph glands and eye pain along with fever.

Less than one percent of those infected develop severe neurological illness like encephalitis or meningitis.

"People may feel, with the end of summer approaching, that the risk of being bitten by mosquitoes is reduced", said Dr. Charles Gardener, Medical Officer of Health for the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.

Be sure that window and door screens are tight fitting and in good fix.

Cover exposed skin by wearing a hat, long sleeves and long trousers in places where mosquitoes are especially active, such as wooded areas. Although it may be hard to do when it's hot, wearing long sleeves, long trousers and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin.
