The West Nile virus is a mosquito-borne disease that originated in Africa and has been detected in every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
Dr. Paul Byers, Mississippi State Department of Health epidemiologist, warned that this is the peak season for the virus, Fox News reports.
The agency says that it has received lab confirmation that mosquitoes collected as part of its ongoing efforts to track the presence of West Nile have tested positive for the virus.
KVRR-TV reports there were 21 confirmed cases of West Nile in Cass County previous year and one death was attributed to the disease.
Humans get the virus from an infected mosquito's bite and mosquitoes acquire the virus by biting or feeding on infected birds. Other means of contracting the virus are through blood transfusions, organ transplants, from mother to child during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, or exposure in a laboratory environment. West Nile can cause multiple symptoms, such as disorientations, headaches, high fever, tremors, seizures and other illnesses.
All that rain we've been experiencing has created breeding grounds for the insects and the heat has helped mosquito larvae thrive and now residents are urged to use a bug spray that contains DEET, wear light coloured clothing, cover exposed skin, and take precautions at dawn and dusk when more mosquitoes are out. Check screens in doors and windows to make sure there are no tears or gaps allowing mosquitoes to get inside.
