More West Nile virus-carrying mosquitoes found in Salt Lake County

Denton County Public Health said the person who came down with it lives in Little Elm.

For the first time this year, a human case of West Nile virus has been confirmed in IL.

However, according to Carrie Brunson, environmental health supervisor with the department, it appears this year's viral presence has spread at a slightly faster pace than was recorded last year.

Most people, around 80 per cent, don't develop any symptoms from West Nile if contracted. Symptoms include fever, nausea and aches.

The city of Frisco is ground spraying for mosquitoes Saturday and Sunday after another mosquito pool tested positive for West Nile virus.

Hot and dry conditions create ideal breeding sites for the type of mosquito that often carries West Nile.

"Symptoms they're typically going to be mild", Department Spokesperson Melaney Arnold said.

At least two blood donors in Minnesota have tested positive for West Nile virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

West Nile virus has been detected in Orleans Parish.

Additional information about mosquitoes in the state can be found on the Louisiana Department of Health's website.

Remove standing water that can become breeding ground for mosquitos and install or fix screens to keep mosquitos outside.

That's when mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus are particularly active, with the peak time being the two hours after sunset. For the 2016 season, IL reported 155 human cases, including six deaths.

When outdoors, wear shoes and socks, long trousers and a long sleeved shirt, and apply insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR 3535, according to label instructions.
