  • Dead birds had West Nile - BC News

As much as 80% cent of people infected do not show symptoms for the virus, but others may experience flu-like signs which could develop to a possibly fatal illness.

Another six municipalities in Attica were added to the areas that have reported cases of the West Nile virus this summer while cases have been documented in at least 39 municipalities, including central suburbs like Kallithea, Egaleo and Piraeus.

Now Public Health England has reported that the mosquito known to transmit the infection - Culex modestus - has been found in the Thames Estuary, near to Southend.

Interior Health says people over 50 and those with compromised immune systems are more at risk, and the risk of contracting the disease is highest in July and August.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) made the announcement Thursday, saying all but one of the people diagnosed with the virus have been hospitalized.

Health officials say the best ways to prevent West Nile are: using insect repellents containing DEET, emptying standing water from containers around your home, wearing long sleeves and trousers from dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are most active and repairing damaged screens on windows and doors.

Homeowners can also eliminate potential mosquito breeding grounds on their property, which includes anything that can hold water, such as pools and even the saucers under flowerpots. Panama City Beach Mosquito Control, Bay County Mosquito Control and DOH-Bay continue surveillance and prevention efforts.

Avoid activities outside at dusk and dawn.

Install screens on windows.

"Wearing long sleeves, long trousers, kind of loose fitting clothing".

Be sure to apply mosquito repellent to bare skin.

-Repel: Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved insect repellents when outdoors, such as those containing the active ingredient DEET.
