Three more cases of West Nile virus have been reported to Sutter County Public Health for a total of five cases this year. A woman and two men have each been hospitalized with the neuroinvasive form of West Nile virus illness. Two of the patients are stable, but one of the men is quite ill. This is another reminder that West Nile virus is present and active in Sutter County and of the importance of protecting yourself and your family from mosquito bites.
This makes a total of five reported human cases in Sutter County this year. The Sutter-Yuba Mosquito and Vector Control District continues to be very active with mosquito control and monitoring mosquito activity. As of last week in Sutter County, sixteen WNV positive birds, 18 WNV positive mosquito samples, and 29 WNV positive chickens have been reported to the California Department of Public health for this year.
