District Medical officer Dr V Jayashree said that the test result of 24-year-old received from Pune-based National Institute of Virology lab said that the case is "primarily confirmed" case of WNV and there is a chance for fault positive case. These agencies are responsible for monitoring the potential public health threat of mosquito-borne diseases.

DEP West Nile virus program staff have conducted multiple operations to reduce mosquito habitats from tire piles and other areas. "If you need to be outside - and especially if you work outside - take action to protect yourself and your family".

West Nile virus is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.

The virus is passed on to human beings from birds and mosquitoes.

There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent infection.

The district's website is reported to contain a mosquito treatment notification service including a communicating map so that the residents can freely figure out whether they are in the spraying zone.

The Department of Public Health and Wellness has also advised residents to mosquito-proof their homes by installing fix screens to keep the insects outside, using an air conditioning system, and emptying standing water.

But the latest report from the state Department of Health this week announced the death of a Brown County resident from virus-associated causes, with a total of 10 human cases in South Dakota. West Nile fever was first noticed in India in 1956 and a study published by the NIV in 1973 had mentioned the presence in Kerala.

Minimize time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active. It's also a good idea to wear long sleeves or trousers when outside. Do not spray repellent on the skin under your clothing. "By eliminating places for mosquitoes to lay eggs, using insect repellent and other protective measures, and targeted use of pesticides, we can all make sure Pennsylvanians are protected". There are two in Wilton. Mosquito traps are set Monday to Thursday nights at each site every ten days on a rotating basis.
