New Jersey reports first human case of West Nile virus this year

Earlier this week, the St. Louis County Department of Public Health recorded its first human case of West Nile Virus for the year, and "Today in St. Louis" set to find out the age-old question: Just what can you do to prevent further spread of mosquitos?

Mosquito pools in every county in New Jersey except for Passaic have tested positive for the virus.

About 80 per cent of people bitten by an infected mosquito don't show any symptoms at all, Miller said.

The Health Department said the public can assist in identifying areas with water which could become potential breeding sites for the mosquitos, which lay their eggs in water. In severe cases, the virus can cause paralysis or death.

Experts recommend using insect repellent, avoiding the peak mosquito feeding times of dawn and dusk and wearing loose fitting clothing.
