Pierce County man contracts West Nile virus

EEE detected in Chatham County, residents urged to take ... - Wsav TV

The Iowa Department of Public Health announced Thursday that testing at the State Hygienic Laboratory has confirmed the first human case of West Nile virus disease in Iowa in 2017.

Mosquitoes in Zion have tested positive for the West Nile virus, the first confirmed indicator that the virus has arrived in Lake County this year, county officials said. The symptoms of West Nile fever include: fever, headache, body aches, fatigue, skin rash, swollen lymph glands and eye pain.

"Hot weather and standing water create the ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed", Executive Director Mark Pfister said.

If symptoms are going to show up, they'll appear between two days and two weeks after a person is bitten by an infected mosquito. In human cases, there are are no preventative medications or vaccinations to prevent the virus.

Residents with questions about West Nile can contact the Mosquito Abatement District at 985-643-5050 or 985-893-0818. Any activity that prevents mosquitoes from biting or breeding can help to reduce the risk of becoming infected with West Nile virus.

Minimize being outdoors when mosquitoes are most active, especially between dusk and dawn.

Use an insect repellent that contains DEET for your family members that are older than six months of age.
