MDH: 4 Cases of West Nile Confirmed in MN

The Cascade City-County Health Department has confirmed Montana's first case of West Nile Virus (WNV) in a human this year.

For less severe cases, people usually experience headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash, along with a fever, the CDC said. This is not Fairfield's first human case of WNV, this is the seventh case since 2000 and 33rd case in Fairfield County since 2000.

Since 2000, there have been 134 human cases of West Nile virus-associated illnesses and three deaths in the state.

Aptie Sookoo, Public Health Inspector at Hastings Prince Edward Public Health said because of the recent weather conditions, there is a high possibility that more pools positive with West Nile are likely to appear. The remaining 157 mosquito samples from 39 traps set on July 30 have tested negative for WNV and Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). Targeted efforts have been ongoing and reduction of mosquito populations in fogged areas is ranging from 50% to 90%.

The city also provided the following advice to help residents protect themselves.

Several Illinois counties have reported mosquito samples testing positive for the virus this year, which could pose a risk of the virus in people, according to a news release.

House mosquito (Culex): This species is most known as the carrier of the West Nile Virus.

West Nile fever generally resolves itself without treatment, but risky brain infections such as encephalitis or meningitis can develop in 1 out of 150 people, according to the press release.

While most people who get the West Nile virus only get mild symptoms, there is the chance for it to develop into something more threatening.

The best defense against WNV is bite prevention.

Limit time spent outside at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

Remove areas of standing water around your home to eliminate sources of mosquito breeding.

When outdoors, wear long trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and socks. West Nile was found in Minnesota in 2002.
