West Nile virus Italy and a mosquito

Last year, Toronto Public Health did not record the first lab-confirmed case of West Nile virus until August 25.

The agency says an adult resident of the town of Mead fell ill on July 27 and was hospitalized the next day.

"West Nile virus is in Iowa", said IDPH Deputy Epidemiologist, Dr. Ann Garvey.

The two sides held three rounds of formal talks, beginning with a delegation to Beijing led by Mnuchin in May. Chinese officials haven't yet commented on the prospects for resuming talks.


The Department of Public Health and Wellness said in a release that surveillance traps in three local zip codes turned up infected mosquitoes including 40212, 40213, and 40214.

"The recent wet and increasing hot weather has created the ideal conditions for the Culex mosquito that carries West Nile Virus", Mark E. Wallace, Executive Director of the Weld County Health Department wrote in a release.

"It's peak season for mosquito activity, and it's important that we all be vigilant and take precautions when enjoying the outdoors this time of year", said CU Boulder Assistant Director for Environmental Operations Rob Lenahan.

Officials say the risk for human infection still relatively low but is expected to increase in the coming weeks.

Symptoms associated with West Nile virus typically appear 3 to 14 days after infection. About one in five will develop flu-like symptoms that can include fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash. "You should wear insect repellant if you go outside during dusk or dawn and should remove standing water around your home". Bird baths, clogged gutters and kiddie pools are common breeding sites. Do not spray repellent on the skin under your clothing.

"It doesn't take much for several hundred mosquitoes to be born".
