KDHE reports first human cases of West Nile Virus Featured

Mosquitoes in Westchester test positive for West Nile

The KDHE says four regions of the state remain under a high-risk warning for West Nile including north central, south central, northwest and southwest Kansas.

Most people don't develop any symptoms, but those who do may have fever, headache, vomiting and diarrhea. About one in 150 infected people will become severely ill.

Symptoms of West Nile are similar to that of the flu, but only about 20 percent of victims show signs of the disease, which can take three to 14 days to incubate, according to the World Health Organization. People who have had the virus before are considered immune.

In the meantime, they are reminding people to protect themselves from mosquito bites by using approved insect repellant, wearing light-coloured clothing, and removing standing water. The municipality, along with Swoyersville, Forty Fort, parts of Edwardsville and Kingston boroughs and Wilkes-Barre City will be sprayed in the early evening with AquaDUET, which is a type of insecticide that will reduce the adult mosquito populations that may carry West Nile Virus.

West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne virus that is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird.
