West Nile Virus found in chickens living in Kenner

For the second time this summer West Nile Virus has made an appearance in Lambton County

A mosquito bite can do more than make you itch - it can give you West Nile virus. One of the pools of mosquitoes that tested positive was near the cross streets of Bown Crossing and Parkcenter Way in east Boise, the other near the cross streets of Riverside Drive and Lakemont Lane in Garden City. Around one person out of 5 West Nile infected people develops symptoms such as fever among others while around one out of 150 people develop symptoms such as swelling of the brain or the brain tissue, which in certain rare cases, can result in the person dying.

Common places water can accumulate are outdoor features such as potted plants and birdbaths, yard debris, storage bins, kids' toys (including kiddie pools), rain gutters, and even corrugated downspouts.

"We always recommend wearing long sleeves and long trousers". Birds, horses and humans can get infected through a single bite.
