"The forecast includes some warm fall temperatures", said Public Health Commissioner Monica Bharel, MD, MPH.

"The positive human cases and positive mosquito pools is a clear indication that threat of West Nile virus is present within our region and the public must take measures to protect themselves", said Kwesi Douglas, program manager of environmental health at the HNHU. "Mosquitoes might still be active and it remains important for people to use mosquito repellent and wear long sleeves to reduce exposed skin". There is no vaccine or treatment for West Nile.

The last reported case of someone dying from West Nile virus in the area was back in 2016.
