Dallas resident is county's first West Nile death of 2018

Officials say two pools of mosquitoes have tested positive for the virus

It has been reported to the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit that mosquitoes collected from three traps last week in the Dresden, Blenheim and North West Chatham areas have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

West Nile virus activity is moving east.

The first appearance of West Nile was in late-July, with a crow in Sarnia testing positive for the virus. Of the 26 Dallas County residents infected previous year, two died from the mosquito-borne illness. Approximately 20 percent who become infected will develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. But some cases can worsen to include swelling of the brain.

Leon Bailey: 'Liverpool, Chelsea have showed an interest in me'

Use effective insect repellent such as DEET or Picaridin. The majority of Culex mosquitoes breed in standing water and others are found in freshwater and saltwater marshes, lakes and ponds.

Drain or treat all standing water in and around your home or workplace.

Health officials say the patient was infected with the more serious neuroinvasive form of the disease.
