First case of West Nile virus found in Ada County

Not everyone who is bitten by an infected mosquito will show symptoms of the virus.

A county resident was released from a local medical facility after being admitted for West Nile virus-like symptoms.

West Nile Virus is communicated to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

North Dakota's Department of Health says West Nile virus cases more than tripled since July 30. Only about 20 percent of those who come in contact with West Nile virus exhibit any symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Health Unit has been trapping and testing mosquitoes since June.

Use insect repellent containing DEET when outside.

Since 2000, 134 cases of the virus have been diagnosed in CT residents and three people have died after being infected with the virus.

Limit outdoor activities during dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active. In 2012, the last time Dallas County saw a major outbreak of West Nile virus, 398 residents contracted the virus and 21 died.

Cover up with light-colored clothes, long sleeves and trousers when outdoors or while in areas where mosquito activity is high.
