Health Department confirms first case of West Nile Virus in Shelby County

The agency says an adult resident of the town of Mead fell ill on July 27 and was hospitalized the next day. Tests results confirmed West Nile Virus Thursday.

Reports of West Nile infection comes after the deadly spread of the Nipah virus in the district. "It only takes one bite from an infected Culex tarsalis mosquito to be exposed to WNV".

"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. "The risk for potential human exposure to WNV is high at present and will likely remain so for the next few weeks".

The Shelby County Health Department has confirmed the first human case of the West Nile Virus in Shelby County.

"Many municipalities have established mosquito control programs, but "the public needs to be vigilant, because this illness has a permanent summer presence in our state", Wallace stated". Symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache, body aches, skin rashes and swollen lymph nodes.
