"This indicates that West Nile infected mosquitoes are now present throughout our community", Dr. Sarah Moyer, director of the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, said in a statement.

According to the Department of Public Health and Environment, the Mead resident became ill on July 27 and was hospitalized the next day. Tests confirmed that the person had the neuro-invasive form of the virus. Less than one percent of those infected develop serious illness of the nervous system like encephalitis or meningitis.

"But through a very aggressive trapping and monitoring program we're seeing higher numbers of West Nile virus infected mosquito pools". There have been 33 fatal cases of West Nile in Pennsylvania since the DEP first started monitoring the virus in 2000.

Between 2013 and 2015, there were no reported human cases with only single cases reported in 2016 and 2017.

"Luckily, the summer to this point hasn't been extremely wet, which has limited prime breeding conditions for mosquitoes", Callanan said.

Experts say most people who are infected have no symptoms or experience only mild, flu-like symptoms.

"It doesn't take much for several hundred mosquitoes to be born". Symptoms can include muscle aches, headache and fever. "Get rid of even small amounts of standing water around your home".

Things like bird baths should be changed at least weekly.

DUSK and DAWN are when mosquitoes are most active.

Use insect repellents when you go outdoors. Always read the repellent label and consult with a health care provider if you have questions when using these types of products for children. Wearing long-sleeve clothing and socks also helps prevent bites.
