First West Nile-associated death of 2017 reported in Tarrant County

First West Nile-associated death of 2017 reported in Tarrant County

Mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus have been found in Butte County, officials announced Monday.

The resident is being treated in Dougherty County.

Three mosquito samples tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV) in Adams County this week, the first this year.

"With recent rains, we have seen plenty of mosquito activity", said Southwest Health District Health Director Dr. Charles Ruis.

While the news of a female Doctor came as a pleasant surprise to many , some wondered if the choice was deliberate, or as a reaction to fan campaigning.

WNV is most commonly transmitted to humans through mosquitos. Wednesday's DEP report listed Hampden Township in Cumberland County as one of the nearby positive samples.

The Department of Public Health said that Georgia typically sees six to 10 cases of West Nile Virus per year.

Symptoms of WNV infection are often mild and may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, a rash, muscle weakness or swollen lymph nodes. Of those, fewer than 1 percent develop the severe neuroinvasive form that can lead to hospitalization, critical illness, chronic disability or death.

TCPH did not identify the person who died, but said they were "a senior adult with underlying medical conditions". If residents must be outdoors when mosquitoes are active, the district recommends to wear long trousers and long-sleeved shirts, socks and shoes, and apply insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus before going outside.

On Friday evening, a few hours after the show began, it was only Rahman who took the stage for his culminating performance. A R Rahman may have been snubbed by so called fans for mainly singing Tamil songs at a concert in Wembley, UK on July 8.

It has been recommended in the past that to avoid mosquito bites you should avoid being outdoors during Dusk and Dawn (the 4 Ds). Empty water from tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged gutters, rain barrels, birdbaths, toys and puddles.

Trim tall grass, weeds, and vines to discourage mosquitoes.

Residents are also urged to make sure doors and windows have tight-fitting screens with no holes, and eliminate all standing water on your property that can support mosquito breeding.

West Nile virus is active throughout the state.
