Confirmed case of West Nile virus in South Milwaukee resident

In August the KDHE reported most of Kansas now at high risk for West Nile Virus

CT health officials said four more state residents have tested positive for West Nile virus, raising the total number of human cases this year to 10.

The Allegheny County Health Department announced Thursday that a Carrick man in his late 60s remains in the hospital.

West Nile virus is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito and is not transmitted person to person.

The agency says confirmed cases have been reported in Lyon, Marion, Neosho, Seward, and Wichita counties. Last year, 51 cases of West Nile infection were reported among Wisconsin residents. More serious symptoms include disorientation, coma, vision loss, numbness, and paralysis.

West Nile is not directly contagious from horse to horse or from horse to human.

Three state residents tested positive for the virus in all of 2017.

Health officials suggest reducing the risk of mosquito bites by wearing mosquito repellent and light-colored clothing with long sleeves and trousers, and checking screens on windows and doors for tears or gaps. Two deaths have been attributed to the virus this year.
