"It doesn't take much for several hundred mosquitoes to be born". Researchers have tallied a record 2,143 pools of West Nile-positive mosquitoes statewide.

To combat the risk of infection, residents are advised to use mosquito repellent, wear long trousers and sleeves to cover exposed skin, and avoid areas where mosquitoes congregate. Those known to bite both birds and humans act as a vector to spread the virus between the species.

The health department also suggests mosquito-proofing your home by installing screens on windows and doors and using air conditioning, if available. While most make a full recovery, severe cases can lead to meningitis, encephalitis, paralysis and, in the most extreme cases, to death.

Some people who get the virus can show no symptoms, while some other can experience fever, headache, and some body aches.
