The Wisconsin Department of Health reported Wednesday the first human case of West Nile Virus (WNV) in the state-certified case in a resident of Northeastern Wisconsin.
According to the publication, most cases of WNV occur in the months of August and September, although the likelihood of becoming infected with the virus is very low. While most people who become infected with the virus do not get sick, they usually experience symptoms such as fever, headache, and skin rash that last a few days. In extremely rare cases, WNV can lead to serious illnesses with symptoms such as disorientation, tremors, paralysis, brain inflammation and coma active to ensure that window and door windows are properly sealed, and the use of an insect repellent are some of the ways to treat mosquitoes and ward off their stings.
