First Indiana Human Case Of West Nile Reported
Friday Aug 08, 2014 1:16pm

By: Jim Measel

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indiana State health officials say the first human case of West Nile virus in Indiana has been reported in Porter County.

Mosquitoes in 18 counties have tested positive for the virus so far in 2014. Those counties include Allen, DeKalb, LaGrange and Steuben Counties. But officials say the West Nile virus may be circulating in all 92 Indiana counties and Hoosiers should take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.

State Health Commissioner William VanNess says this is the time of the year when Indiana residents are at a risk of getting West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne viruses.

Avoid being outdoors when mosquitoes are active, use insect repellent, install or repair screens and when possible, wear pants and long sleeves, especially if walking in wooded or marshy areas.
