Oneida County resident tests positive for West Nile Virus

Mosquito testing in Kent County has revealed the presence of West Nile Virus for the first time this season.

The number of West Nile cases has been low this year, but can increase in late summer/early fall. Mosquitoes acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds.

So far in DE this year, no cases of WNV or EEE have been found in humans or horses.

The treatment will provide quick, effective control of adult mosquito populations, but community members can still do their part to help control mosquitos.

State officials say two mosquito-borne viruses that carry potentially serious health risks for humans have been detected in so-called sentinel chickens in DE for the first time this year.
