The first human case of the West Nile virus for 2018 in Ottawa County has been documented.

West Nile virus-positive mosquitos have been found in traps in London and in central and western Middlesex County. Common symptoms include fever, nausea, headache and muscle aches.

So far this year, Kansas has had two cases of the neuro invasive form of West Nile, both in Johnson County. Since 2002, there have been 66 human cases of West Nile virus in Lake County, as well as two confirmed deaths.

The number of mosquito pools that tested positive for the virus in Suffolk County rose to 15 this week, health officials said.

Hamilton: The four-time world champion drove a masterful race a year ago to seal his third win around the street circuit. The result is a 10 grid position drop for the next race and three penalty points on his licence.


Do not forget to take some simple precautions to reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home and protect yourself from being bitten.

Only about 20% of those who get infected with West Nile will notice any symptoms.

The mosquito control workers are stepping up their workload, adding even more rounds to their fogging schedule.

Recommendations consist of draining standing water from gadgets spherical properties, yards, and businesses.

United Nations panel calls on Suu Kyi to use her "moral authority"
For the first time the world human rights body explicitly named Myanmar officials and army officers to be charged with genocide. The U.N. mission found Myanmar's armed forces had forced more than 700,000 Rohingya to flee starting in late August 2017.


The Georgia Department of Health says to dump out buckets that have any excess water in them, as they can be a great breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Apply an insect repellant with DEET, IR3535, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus to exposed skin and clothing.

To protect your home, use screens on doors, windows and fix holes. It's the ninth confirmed human case in the state this year.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has monitored the spread of West Nile virus since 2001 among wild birds, horses, mosquitoes, and people. To report a sick or dead crow, blue jay, or raven, please call the Dead Bird Reporting Hotline at 1-800-433-1610.
