West Nile Confirmed in MD

West Nile virus has been confirmed in Anne Arundel County. According to officials, this is the time of summer that this disease typically appears. This is not a human case nor a dead bird case, but the virus was found through regular surveillance in a mosquito pool. In past years we have had as high as 73 human cases (2003), but the virus has migrated westward. Last year there was only one human case, dropping from 14 in 2008.

“The confirmation of virus-positive mosquitoes serves as a reminder to all residents to continue protecting themselves against mosquito bites and to conduct backyard mosquito control activities.”

– Secretary of Agriculture Buddy Hance
