Health Department Reports County's First Human West Nile Virus Case of 2018

The state department of health confirms three new cases of the West Nile virus, two in Hinds County and one in Itawamba County. In some cases, the virus can lead to permanent neurological damage and death. WNV is transmitted to people and animals through the bite of an infected mosquito. Symptoms may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, body aches, skin rash and swollen lymph glands. The symptoms can last for several days to months.

However, four out of five people infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms.

The individual was hospitalized for their illness but is recovering at home. As of July 26, 17 of the 93 CAES mosquito traps located in CT towns have had positive test results for WNV according to the CAES.

Each year, state health officials stress that West Nile Virus has been found in every part of the state, and that residents can't assume they are safe because there have been no human cases reported in their county.
