  • West Nile Virus Detected In Stanley County Mosquitoes

According to Three Rivers Public Health Department Disease Surveillance Coordinator and Health Educator Amy Roberts, West Nile virus is spread through infected mosquitoes' bites.

"Regardless of whether or not the Aurora resident contracted the virus while in Wisconsin, it is important to note that West Nile virus is active in Will County this summer", county health department officials said in a news release. Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes in OH most often occur from May through October.

According to Courtney Sheeley, Public Information Officer for the South Health District, officials don't typically see this amount of mosquitoes test positive for the West Nile Virus, until August.

There were 14 human cases confirmed locally previous year and in 2015, there were two deaths related to a West Nile infection.

West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito, commonly called a house mosquito, which has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. He says just because West Nile Virus hasn't been detected where you live, doesn't mean it's not there.
