West Nile found in Central Nebraska

Posted: 09/05/13 09:59

West Nile season is upon us as three individuals living within South Heartland District Health Department have recently tested positive for the illness. Throughout the state, there have been 22 cases reported as of August 28th.  South Heartland previously reported that mosquitoes trapped from 5 locations in Adams and Webster counties tested positive for West Nile virus during the 2013 season. The best defense against it is prevention says Michele Bever the Director of the SHDHD. Currently there is no vaccine available for humans, but scientists are working on it and hope that one might be available in the next few years
