First traces of West Nile virus detected in MI for 2017


A Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito is seen on the skin of a human host in this 2014 picture from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

West Nile virus is spread through the bites of infected mosquitoes that have acquired the virus by feeding on infected birds.

Health experts confirmed Friday the discovery of three birds that tested positive for West Nile virus in MI - the earliest detection of the virus in the past decade.

The mosquitoes that transmit West Nile virus may breed near people's homes in storm drains, shallow ditches, retention ponds, and unused pools. They will readily come inside to bite if windows and door screens are not covered.

The three West Nile-positive birds this year were found sick or dead early in May and were tested this week at Michigan State University, Eisner said. And MDHHS says that as temperatures rise, mosquitoes and the virus develop more quickly. Birds are the natural animal reservoir for the virus and carry it in their blood.

"Mosquito bites and the diseases spread by infected mosquitoes are preventable", said Dr. Joe Iser, Chief Health Officer for the Health District.
