In 2017, 51 human cases of WNV were reported in Wisconsin, which is the highest number since 2012. "And it's the major problem with West Nile", he added. Most people who become infected with West Nile Virus do not become ill. And most people bitten by an infected mosquito never show any symptoms. In rare cases, WNV can cause severe disease with symptoms such as disorientation, tremors, convulsions, paralysis, in-flammation of the brain, and going into a coma. "One out of 10 (with neuroinvasive West Nile virus) will die; one out of 10 will have permanent disabilities".

The case in a Nassau County resident means that area remains under a mosquito-borne illness advisory issued in June following confirmation of Eastern equine encephalitis virus infections in horses there, health officials said.

Use insect repellents with an EPA-registered active ingredient like DEET, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes carrying the virus are most active.

Officials asked residents to remove any standing water on their property.

Get rid of old tires and other containers where water can accumulate and serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

In response to increased West Nile Virus activity, the district will be conducting targeted aerial mosquito control spraying with a twin engine airplane after sunset on Sunday, August 26th, weather permitting.
