West Nile Virus found in Brant County

West Nile Virus found in Brant County

The West Nile Virus is mainly transmitted to people through the bite of an infected mosquito, public health officials say.

The Brant County Health Unit has seen three positive human cases for West Nile Virus so far this summer.

Not everyone who is bitten by an infected mosquito will show symptoms of the virus. In North America, that means that mosquito season - extending from the late spring through the fall - is West Nile season.

Take extra protection measures at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. Test results are reported once a week by the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station.

"Over the past few weeks, West Nile virus activity has been on the rise across Ontario", Lyttle said in a release.

There is new evidence of West Nile virus in Perth County.

DCHHS recommends that Dallas County residents use an insect repellent containing DEET whenever they go outside, and that they dress in long, loose and light-colored clothing.
