West Nile Virus mosquitoes documented in Scott County PDF Print E-mail

Officials of the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) recently announced that mosquito pools in Scott County have tested positive for the West Nile Virus. It’s the first sign of the disease in the county this year.
ISDH officials stated that citizens should take the appropriate precautions to avoid mosquito bites.
There is no human vaccine available to combat the virus nor is there any known cure for West Nile Virus, but the illness can be prevented by following these steps:
•Avoid being outdoors during prime mosquito biting times, dusk to dawn, when possible.
•Apply insect repellent containing DEET and follow label directions when applying.
•Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants.
West Nile Virus is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes that have first bitten an infected bird. A person infected through a mosquito bite may show symptoms three to 15 days after being bitten.
It’s safe to say that Hoosiers in all counties should take recommended precautions. According to an ISDH map, Scott joins 22 other counties where West Nile-positive samples have been found. Another nine Indiana counties are considered severely infested with virus-bearing mosquitoes. Washington County is the nearest county to Scott where such insects have been discovered.
