Dead birds had West Nile - BC News

Overall, the CDC said, 45 states and the District of Columbia have reported the virus in people, birds or mosquitoes this year. Eight of these cases occurred in Dane County, which was the highest number ever reported in the county. Veterinarians can arrange for testing of samples from horses suspected of infection with West Nile Virus.

Chris Boling, the county's environmental health specialist, said he was informed by State Entomologist Bryan Price that a sample of mosquitoes taken August 10 tested positive for the disease. If you think you have West Nile virus infection, contact your healthcare provider.

West Nile fever diagnoses depend on whether a patient even goes to the doctor, and then on whether the doctor tests for it. The symptoms may develop two to 15 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. They're diagnosed only if their blood is tested. It's one of the first seven cases statewide this year, according to the state health department. Louisiana reports there have been 31 residents with risky nervous system infections and 13 cases of flu-like West Nile fever. MS has reported 10 fever cases in addition to the 15 nervous system infections, Byers said.

The first North American cases of West Nile were detected in New York City in 1999 and since then, it has established itself in the continental United States and Canada, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control says. "Over the years, as the herd became more protected, less cases".

There were almost 3,000 cases of encephalitis and meningitis caused by the virus in both 2002 and 2012.
