About one in 150 people infected with West Nile virus will develop severe illness. "When you get a lot of rain it produces a lot of habitat for mosquitoes to reproduce themselves, and when you have a lot of heat they do that more quickly".

- Use insect repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, IR 3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or permethrin and apply to clothing when outdoors.

West Nile Virus affects humans, equines, and birds.

"While the symptoms may not seem threatening in the vast majority of cases, serious impacts to health can occur from being bitten by mosquitoes that carry this virus", McDonnell said. Most people with this type of West Nile virus disease recover completely, but fatigue and weakness can last for weeks or months.

Infected samples have been found in the city of Harrisburg, Conewago Township, East Hanover Township, Derry Township, Halifax Township, Lower Paxton Township, Londonderry Township, Lykens borough, Middle Paxton Township, Millersburg borough, Paxtang borough, Susquehanna Township, Swatara Township, Washington Township and West Hanover Township. In 2017, Ada County's first positive West Nile test pool was reported in mid-July.

"The best way to avoid mosquito-borne diseases is to prevent mosquito bites", states the DOH website.
