Dallas County First West Nile Death 2018

The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has not said precisely where the Mosquitoes carrying West Nile Virus were found.

The county's Health Unit reports that mosquitoes taken from a trap in the southeastern part of Mitchell have tested positive for West Nile virus.

For more information on West Nile Virus, please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada website at: http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/wn-no/index-eng.php or call the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit at 519.355.1071.

The first appearance of West Nile was in late-July, with a crow in Sarnia testing positive for the virus.

Throughout the summer months, public health traps and tests mosquito pools across Oxford County on a weekly basis. The most common symptoms of the virus are fever, headaches or physical weakness. Of the 26 Dallas County residents infected previous year, two died from the mosquito-borne illness.

Use insect repellent containing DEET when outside. In 2012, the last time Dallas County saw a major outbreak of West Nile virus, 398 residents contracted the virus and 21 died.

Mosquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk.
