Mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus found in Iowa Great Lakes area

"The confirmation of West Nile virus in mosquito samples or birds indicates the presence of West Nile virus in the area", said Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. James Tomarken in a news release, adding "there is no cause for alarm".

Just because West Nile was only found in one zip code does not mean that is the only place the virus is present in Kent County, said Adam London, administrative health officer at the health department.

No human cases of West Nile Virus have been found in West Springfield or the surrounding communities. It's important to take precautions.

They can get rashes, nausea and vomiting among other things. The most serious cases of WestNile virus infection can lead to encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, which can be fatal.

The Elmore County Pest Abatement District is treating these mosquito pools with fogging. Symptoms of more severe illness can also include changes in mental status and muscle weakness. Wear gloves and place the dead bird or squirrel in a double plastic bag if you dispose of it yourself.
