Health Authorities Fear West Nile Season Again in US

Health authorities in the US are worried about yet another bout of West Nile, a potentially fatal, mosquito-spread infection.

Rudy Bueno, the Chief of Mosquito Control of the Harris county has said that the situation may worsen if people don't follow the precautionary measures. There is still a large percentage of people in Houston who have not yet been affected by this disease. Not using repellants or going out at night in short-sleeve shirts can be potentially risky. He said people dropping their guard was the primary reason for last year's jump.

In 2006 there was a serious escalation in the incidence of this disease in Texas. 354 persons were infected and 31 deaths occurred, whereas there were only 128 cases and 11 deaths the previous year.

Weather plays a big role in the spread of this disease and it is not clear what kind of season awaits Houston during 2007. It is generally believed that the spread of the disease may happen late.

The West Nile virus transmits between mosquitoes and birds. Infected mosquitoes transmit the virus to birds, animals and also to humans. A well known entomologist claims that mosquitoes haven't been able to reproduce as prolifically as in previous years. The mosquitoes are much sparser than usual, which will mean a lower infection rate of West Nile in birds.

The county has commenced fogging operations in storm sewers of two areas and trapped more than 1,000 mosquitoes. The fogging operations will further intensify in the coming weeks

Fortunately no West Nile activity has been detected in the mosquitoes trapped so far. But it is too early and they may still show up in the coming weeks. The county already has unconfirmed report of a suspected human case of West Nile.

The West Nile virus infection produces a wide range of symptoms and there is no specific treatment. People beyond 50 years are more susceptible to this infection which may lead to encephalitis
