First Human Cases of West Nile Virus for 2017 Reported in Wisconsin
Protect yourself against mosquito bites
State and local health officials are advising residents to continue to protect themselves against mosquito bites as they announce this year’s first confirmed human cases of West Nile virus (WNV) in residents of Oconto and Fond du Lac Counties.
The majority of WNV human cases in the state occur during the months of August and September. However, the risk of contracting WNV and other mosquito-borne illnesses is present anytime mosquitoes are active, so it is important for people to be vigilant in their personal protective measures to prevent mosquito bites throughout the summer and early fall."
