Two cases of West Nile in Nicosia area

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has identified the first two cases of human West Nile virus infection in Los Angeles County for the 2019 season (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena as cases identified in those cities are reported by their local health departments). One lives in the San Fernando Valley and the other in the southeastern region of L.A. County, they said.

"Mosquito bites aren't just annoying, they may make you sick", Davis said.

Health officials recommend that people protect themselves from West Nile by applying bug repellent, clearing their yards of standing water that attracts insects and wearing long sleeves and trousers at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.

Both people became ill with West Nile, which is transmitted to humans through a mosquito bite, late last month and are recovering, officials said Monday.

Symptoms of the virus include fever and head and body aches. WNV can affect the nervous system and result in meningitis, encephalitis, paralysis and even death. Though serious illness can occur in people of any age, it is most likely among people older than 50.

"Since its introduction in 2003, WNV has infected more than 6,500 people and has caused 292 fatalities statewide, according to the California Department of Public Health", states the Vector Control news release.

Officials recommend residents use mosquito repellent that includes DEET, Picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus when outdoors. Drain such areas around your home (gutters, pools, tires, buckets, water bowls, etc.).

DRAIN STANDING WATER-Standing water is the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes. During the same time, eighty-two cases were reported across Tennessee. In fact, a climate report released by the US government late last year stated that West Nile Virus cases are expected to double over the next 30 years. The patient in Imperial County died.

There is no vaccine to prevent West Nile Virus.

OC Vector Control will conduct additional mosquito trapping around El Camino Real Park. Keep in mind to tip and toss anything that can hold water on your property and use insect repellent when mosquitoes are present.
