First West Nile Virus related death is recorded for the year

Resident in Sugar Land tests positive for West Nile Virus

After confirming the first positive insect testing positive for West Nile this year, the Grayson County Health Department is already taking preventative actions.

In particular, the national Institute of public health on Friday reported 30 new cases of disease in humans after being bitten by mosquitoes with the virus.

The three deaths in Iowa this year are the most from West Nile since 2003 and Garvey is calling on Iowans not to let their guard down. WNV cases have been reported in all of the continental United States.

The virus can not be spread directly from infected animals to humans or from person to person.

"This is an expected and normal occurrence but serves as a reminder to take precautions to avoid mosquito bite exposures", Herrick said in the news release.

A Suffolk County man in his 50s was diagnosed on September 11, marking the fifth person in the county to contract the virus, health officials said in a statement. Of these, 17 people died.

Mosquitos spread the West Nile Virus to humans by feeding on the blood of an infected animal and carrying it to other animals and people two weeks later.
