  • Mosquito trap

The EOHU is confirming the summer's second human case of West Nile virus in the region.

Certain mosquito species carry West Nile virus, which can cause humans to contract West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain.

Two Guelph area residents have tested positive for West Nile virus.

"Because mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, public health asks property owners to remove standing water anywhere it tends to collect", stated a WDGPH press release.

"Everything does clear up, but it's not a fun illness to have". People should minimize the time they spend outdoors at dusk and dawn, district officials said, and protect skin and indoor areas from mosquitoes. Adults over the age of 50 are most at risk of serious health effects. The number of people infected could even reach 2012 levels, when there were 457 positive surveillance pools and 271 human cases over the course of the year.

Since the home addresses of the two residents diagnosed with West Nile Fever are not near each other, mosquito control spraying will not be immediately scheduled.

"We had a warm winter, we've had a cool, wet summer, and all that contributes to the possible- kind of flawless storm for West Nile virus in southern Ontario this year".
