"With yet another positive result, it's clear that West Nile Virus is now widespread across Durham Region", says Ken Gorman, director of environmental health.

A press release from the agency says that a WNV positive sample of Culex tarsalis was collected in the Gerber area, about five miles southeast of Great Falls, on Wednesday, August 16.

The Oklahoma Department of Health reported this week that seven cases have been confirmed in Cleveland, Muskogee, Oklahoma (3) and Tulsa (2) counties.

"It is in Lorain County, and it's very important for us to proceed with this", Zilka said. "It's throwing us off". The resident of the 75248 zip code [north of Beltline Road, between the Dallas North Tollway and Coit Road] was diagnosed with West Nile virus on July 14. West Nile is not contagious from person-to-person through casual contact. As is protocol, Vector Control technicians established a 1-mile-radius circle around each of the five discovery sites and stocked it with 40 mosquito traps baited with carbon dioxide. In June, a black-headed grosbeak from Clearlake tested positive for West Nile virus. The new cases were in Bolivar, Hinds, Humphreys, Lincoln, Madison (3), Noxubee, Rankin (3), and Wilkinson counties. "And that's not just us - it's statewide".

In 2016, there were 155 cases of human West Nile Virus with six deaths reported in the state, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Rain could be to thank for the relative inactivity, Parman said. But the past winter's abundantly wet weather means ample resources for all.

In the 2002 and 2012 Ontario outbreak years, Lambton saw one and two positive human cases respectively, Lucas said.

Previous year one person died of West Nile in Louisville, and there was one other non-fatal case.

According to the family, the man became ill last week.

The McHenry County Department of Health warns residents to take precautions until the first hard frost.

To protect yourself avoid mosquito areas, cover up and use bug spray and get rid of standing water on your property.

The Brock University team used 12 years of this research, and combined it with data on human cases to predict the next wave of infections.
