First 2 human cases of West Nile in CT reported

All four cases the CDC says were confirmed following blood donations

According to the state Department of Public Health, the patients are residents of Fairfield and Newington.

The two individuals were between 60 and 79 years old, officials said.

The first two human cases of West Nile virus have been reported.

West Nile virus is transmitted from birds through bites by the Culex pipiens mosquito.

Cases generally tend to spike during the summer and fall months, between June and September, when activity is the most common. "These factors indicate that the risk for human West Nile virus infections is elevated and will likely remain elevated through the remainder of August".

The CCHD says that the infected person is over the age of 65 and was exhibiting WNV symptoms, which led to being tested, but is not able to release any other patient-specific information due to privacy laws. Symptoms of these diseases might include headache, rash, high fever, stiff neck, mental confusion, muscle weakness, tremors, convulsions, coma, and paralysis.

Mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus have been found in southern Indiana. In each case the people had no symptoms at the time of donating blood through a blood collection agency, but whose blood tested positive when screened for the presence of West Nile virus. But the elderly and those with compromised immune systems can become seriously ill and could die.

Health departments have also encouraged residents to remove items from the outside of their home that contain water - such as buckets or pet dishes - because it can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Experts recommend using insect repellent, avoiding the peak mosquito feeding times of dawn and dusk and wearing loose fitting clothing.
