FIRST HUMAN WEST NILE VIRUS CASE FOR HEALTH DISTRICT

The first human case of West Nile Virus in the Public Health Solutions (PHS) 5 county health district (Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline and Thayer Counties) was reported on Sunday of this week. This along with an above average report of mosquitoes in our district should be a reminder that residents should take precautions to avoid mosquitoes by eliminating standing water and outside exposure at dusk and dawn. When you are out, wear long sleeves and pants and wear mosquito repellant that contains DEET.

Symptoms of West Nile virus vary from person to person but can include fever, headache, and body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. Contact your health care provider. Less than 1 in 100 people will develop severe illness characterized by a high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness, coma and paralysis.
