Mead resident hosptilized with most serious form of West Nile virus

Health Department confirms first case of West Nile Virus in Shelby County

There are no confirmed human cases of the virus in the region so far this year.

Last week, Maryland health officials reported the first confirmed case of a West Nile-infected adult in that state.

A resident in Mead has been hospitalized with a neuro-invasive form of West Nile Virus - the most serious form of the illness, according to a release from the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment.

However, the season isn't over yet, and the number of "vector" mosquitoes is increasing as the summer moves on, he said.

In Maryland, there were five reported cases of West Nile past year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, health officials said some severe cases of the virus can also lead to meningitis, encephalitis, paralysis and even death. Symptoms can include muscle aches, headache and fever.

Experts say most people who are infected have no symptoms or experience only mild, flu-like symptoms.

According to the July 24 report, state officials have reported the virus in humans, mosquitoes, birds and sentinel and veterinary animals in a total of 36 states, including Alabama, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas.

People over 50-years-old, those with chronic diseases, and those who require medical treatment that weakens their immune system are most at risk.

"However, this can change from week to week and we urge people to protect themselves and do their part to reduce the spread of mosquito populations in their neighbourhoods and communities by removing standing water".
