  • Health Department confirms first case of West Nile Virus in Shelby County

In Wilton, 185 mosquitoes have been caught in the trap on Saunders Drive and one tested positive for Jamestown Canyon virus. Last year, there were six reported cases in the state.

Lower temperatures mean less mosquito activity and mosquito infection rates are now just average for this point in the year after a strong start to the season, he said.

"This indicates that West Nile infected mosquitoes are now present throughout our community", Dr. Sarah Moyer, director of the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, said in a statement. As per a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on July 24, 2018, people from Alabama, California, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas contracted the West Nile infection. In Virginia, there were 13, and in the District, there were four.

Ann Garvey says this death related to West Nile is tragic, and reminds Iowans to protect themselves and their families from mosquitoes. Initial symptoms can include fever, headache, nausea and vomiting, muscle aches and weakness and rash. Another person with similar symptoms is under observation. Less than 1 percent of those people contracting the virus will develop severe symptoms.

Laura Calderwood said Thursday that she believes her daughter, 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts, is alive and may have been kidnapped. Investigators say they have concluded that a woman spotted in northwest Missouri was not a missing Iowa college student.

Helwig adds that those with a weaker immune system and older adults at greater risk for a more serious case of West Nile.

"The ones that pass [West Nile] on are the ones who have fed on a blood meal before, laid eggs, are now infected with the disease, and would take a second blood meal to start that process again", Helwig said.

It's an especially important job this year because the Department of Environmental Protection is reporting the highest levels of West Nile in the mosquito population since the virus first appeared in the state. Once a week, empty and scrub, turn over, cover or throw out items that hold standing water, such as tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpots and trash containers.
