West Nile virus detected in Logan as more cases crop up throughout West - The Herald Journal

West Nile virus has been detected in a sample from a mosquito trap in Logan, officials announced Friday afternoon, at a time when the virus is cropping up more and more throughout the U.S. West.

The West Nile-positive sample was taken from a Logan City Mosquito Abatement trap in the area of 1700 North and 1200 West in Logan. A sample from a Cache Mosquito Abatement District trap in Petersboro came back as West Nile-positive last week.

Mosquito populations carrying West Nile virus have been found in Utah following weather conditions that allowed the insects to flourish, with several counties reporting cases of infected people. No fatalities have been reported.

Nadja Reissen, a biologist with the Salt Lake City Mosquito Abatement District, said she expects to see fewer cases of West Nile Virus amid drier weather.

Her agency has set up a variety of traps to attract and contain mosquitoes.

Elsewhere in the West, a record number of cases in Arizona's Maricopa County and at least seven deaths statewide this year, the latest public health data showed Friday.

Numbers from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show Arizona has the most cases of any state this year.

Arizona's updated public health statistics this week list Maricopa with more cases of infected people than any county, with 135 of 138 confirmed and probable cases statewide.

It said seven people had died. The department cautioned on its chart that the numbers are subject to change.

Southern Nevada has also emerged as part of the "hot zone" for the virus, with 28 cases reported in the area around Las Vegas as of last week. A scattering of cases was also reported in other states including California and Utah.

Dr. Cara M. Crist, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, said on her blog that about 20 West Nile Virus cases are usually reported statewide by this time. Crist said the agency "is working closely with local health departments, vector control agencies and the CDC to increase our surveillance of these mosquito-borne diseases."

Arizona's current monsoon season could lead to more mosquitoes testing positive for the virus, as well as more cases of people being infected by their bites, she said.

New Mexico health officials said five more cases of West Nile virus detected in people have been confirmed in the state since the first one was reported in early August. Montana health officials also now say West Nile virus has been reported in people in that state for the first time this season.

The virus can cause fever, headaches, body aches and nausea to more serious things like inflammation of the brain or spinal cord in rare instances. Most people infected by the virus will have no symptoms at all.

There were 2,647 cases and 167 deaths nationwide in 2018, according to the CDC.
