The county's Health Unit reports that mosquitoes taken from a trap in the southeastern part of Mitchell have tested positive for West Nile virus.
The virus was first identified in Iowa in a dead crow in 2001 and cases of human infection have been reported every year since 2002.
West Nile Virus is spread to people through the bite of infected mosquitoes.
For more information on West Nile Virus, please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada website at: http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/wn-no/index-eng.php or call the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit at 519.355.1071. Approximately 20 percent who become infected will develop a fever with other symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash.
So far this mosquito season, about four dozen mosquito traps - in Addison, Balch Springs, Coppell, Dallas, DeSoto, Garland, Highland Park, Irving, Mesquite, Richardson, Rowlett and University Park - have captured mosquitoes with the virus, according to DCHHS.
