West Nile virus cases picking up in state

There has not been a human case of West Nile virus since 2006, however, public health says this positive mosquito pool is proof the virus is present in Oxford County. Almost half of those cases are in the Valley, where county officials also found 49 infected mosquito samples just last week. "We encourage citizens in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County to report high levels of mosquito activity through 311 in order to request control". In 2006, two people died from the disease.
Animals associated with West Nile virus in OH include birds, horses, and mosquitoes.
Mosquito control has asked the Department of Natural Resources if they can fog more in the area where the horse was found. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.
Remove anything around your house and yard that collects water; just one cup of water can produce hundreds of mosquitoes. "But no one forgets when they or a family member becomes sick with West Nile virus".
So far this year, 29 OH counties have reported West Nile virus activity in mosquitoes collected by the state for surveillance.
Most people who get infected with the virus are asymptomatic, however, if it is a pregnant woman who is affected, the virus can lead to serious birth defects (e.g., microcephaly).
West Nile Virus symptoms include fever, head ache, body ache, and occasionally a rash. People with milder illnesses typically recover on their own, although symptoms may last for several weeks. Some of these symptoms can cause permanent damage. Fresno County had 14 people infected and no deaths in 2016.
All Nevada residents should take precautions such as eliminating mosquito-breeding sites around houses and barns, using insect repellents and keeping horses vaccinated against WNV, SLE and WEE. Make sure rain barrels are tightly screened.
Vaccinations for horses are available at most veterinary clinics for larger animals. Being outside means you're at risk - The more time you are outdoors, the more likely it is you could be bitten by an infected mosquito.
The FDA notes that serological tests "are especially important because there is often a small window when the virus' genetic material is detectable".

Locations you can find solar eclipse glasses
The fact that total solar eclipses are even possible is a cosmic coincidence, says UBC astrophysicist Jaymie Matthews. All of us, no matter where we are in the United States, will have a chance to see at least a partial solar eclipse .
Red Sox want Yawkey Way renamed - perhaps for David Ortiz
The Red Sox were the last team to integrate under his ownership, not signing an African-American player until Pumpsie Green 1959. That incredible first pitch, and the photographs it generated, aren't the only reason this was a remarkable game though.
