Mosquito spraying planned for Blair, Bedford counties

The agency did not disclose any details about the victim in reporting the death Monday.

State officials now say West Nile has been identified in 43 of 92 counties in Indiana.

The best protection against West Nile Virus is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes that carry the potentially unsafe infection, said Southwest Health District Health Director Dr. Charles Ruis.

The majority of people (80%) who are infected with West Nile virus do not get sick. Most of those recover completely, but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months. Even as we move into fall, residents should continue to take precautions against mosquito bites.

"We urge people to protect themselves against West Nile", said Dr Sarah Moyer, director of the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness. There have been no deaths from West Nile in 2018. People 60 and older are more susceptible to these severe symptoms.

Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing, so spraying clothes with a repellent containing permethrin or DEET will give extra protection.

Maintain window and door screening to help keep mosquitoes out of buildings.

Symptoms of severe illness can range from a high fever and headache to vision loss or paralysis, according to the CDC, and no vaccine or antiviral treatments are available. People 50 years of age or older have the greatest risk of complications.

Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, socks, and shoes. Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property by emptying flower pots, old vehicle tires, buckets, and other containers. The agency tracks certain cases of West Nile and other illnesses spread by mosquitoes with an online map at gis.dhec.sc.gov/mosquitoborne/.
