As we mentioned in a previous article, West Nile virus is most prominent in Massachusetts from June through September. It was also noted that it’s almost a given that we’ll see confirmed cases beginning to spring up at the end of August and during September. Now, with the 2nd confirmed case of West Nile virus in Massachusetts, mosquito control may be necessary longer into the fall than previously expected.
West Nile virus is highly discriminatory. It’s most impactful upon the extremely young and the elderly. In fact, the majority of the median age range may be infected and not even exhibit any symptoms. However, the young and the elderly can be so gravely impacted they’ll require hospitalization. While it may appear we’re approaching the end of the mosquito season, State Public Health Veterinarian Catherine Brown stated in an Associated Press article, “the West Nile season is still in its peak time and surveillance still indicates the presence of infected mosquitoes”.
