Department of Health Warns Against West Nile Virus

The case involving a person, residing in Town of Lockport, being attacked by the West Nile virus is reported to be the latest witnessed in the area of Upper Mountain Road and Sunset Drive.

However, the new case of a mosquito infection in the south part of the Buffalo state, reported this week, has triggered the authorities to warn the residents. The authorities are urging the local residents to take precautions.

The low-lying forest areas with watery land are deemed to be the most common places providing a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

“We have the same concern here in Niagara County on the virus as anywhere else in the area”, quoted Jim Devald, Director of the Niagara County Environmental Health Division. “We have been sending mosquitos for testing, but so far, no confirmed reports”.

In addition, even the Florida Department of Health has risen to mull over the issue as the summer rainy season is in its full show. The Department officials have been calling for the need to stop mosquito-borne diseases, including West Nile virus from emerging.

The symptoms triggered by a mosquito infection include headache, fever, dizziness and fatigue.
