South Dakota Health Department says West Nile Virus risk increasing

The West Nile Virus has come to West Side.

The state Health Department reported Thursday that West Nile virus has been detected in humans or mosquitoes in 11 counties across South Dakota. It can be transmitted to people by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Ving Rhames Says Police Held Him at Gunpoint in His Home
In the past few months, a woman called police on a black man wearing socks in the community pool in Memphis. Throughout the ordeal, Rhames said that he remained compliant and kept his hands in the air.

The majority of people infected will show no symptoms, while a smaller number (around 20 percent) will experience fevers, headaches, body aches, nausea, and vomiting. No humans have been affected by the virus-borne mosquitoes.

Sheeley says wet, swampy areas are the ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed, and spread disease. He began exhibiting symptoms of the infection and was hospitalized, but he has since been discharged and is recovering at home. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, and IR3535 are effective. Although it may be hard to do when it's hot, wearing long-sleeves, long trousers and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin. Larvicide can help reduce mosquito populations in areas where standing water cannot be eliminated through traditional drainage methods.
