A mosquito sample from Southold was among 19 new mosquito samples to test positive for West Nile virus, bringing the total number of positive mosquito samples found this year to 63, the Suffolk County health commissioner announced this afternoon.
Officials said West Nile virus was recently detected along the Delaware River in the Wilmington area and in west-central Kent County, with both instances confirmed by blood samples taken from the caged chickens that are used to detect the virus.
Fewer than one in 50 will become severely ill with encephalitis or meningitis (inflammation of the brain or surrounding tissues).
The West Nile Virus has reached another part of Western Massachusetts. "This finding is significant because this is our first alert to the presence of West Nile as it begins to surface at this time of the year". In 2016, 95 West Nile cases and one West Nile-related death were reported.
The most effective way to avoid West Nile virus disease is to prevent mosquito bites.
