Atlantic County reports positive samples of West Nile virus

The City of Estevan has announced that low numbers of Culex tarsalis mosquitoes have been found in mosquito traps in the city and elsewhere in southern Saskatchewan.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are no vaccines available to prevent West Nile virus (WNV) or medications available to treat it.

Mississippi State Department of Health discovered the first human West Nile virus case of 2018 in Hinds County. The risk of transmission to humans is minimal to low, but is expected to rise in July.

The virus is usually prevalent from May through October when mosquitoes are most abundant.

Local residents are urged to take precautions against mosquito bites.

The health unit will continue to monitor for West Nile Virus and the larviciding program will continue throughout the summer. Mosquitoes contract the virus when they feed on infected birds, then spread the virus when the mosquitoes seek other hosts to bite.

Other mosquito species are being detected in higher numbers than normal in southern Saskatchewan.

The mosquito was tested on June 18.
