York Region reports first human case of West Nile virus

Two Dougherty Co. residents diagnosed with West Nile Virus

West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

The Regional Municipality of York received laboratory confirmation that an individual from The City of Vaughan has tested positive for West Nile virus, marking York Region's first human case of 2018.

The statement also said that a total of 798 West Nile virus cases were detected in Greece, Italy, Hungary and Romania among European Union countries. Although the cases have been reported throughout Serbia, most incidents have been registered in Belgrade (141). As many already know, the disease can be transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitos. Symptoms range from slight headache and low-grade fever to welling of the brain tissue and in rare case, death.

Spraying also took place in August 2017 when a Lexington resident had the West Nile infection.
