Up to this point in 2017, IDPH reported four cases and zero deaths.

In Santa Clara County, West Nile virus is typically most active between May and September, but it can extend a month earlier or later, Parman said.

"While most people infected with West Nile Virus show no symptoms of the illness and pass it on their own, even healthy people have become severely ill for weeks when infected", says Dr.

West Nile fever generally resolves itself without treatment, but risky brain infections such as encephalitis or meningitis can develop in 1 out of 150 people. However, people over 60 years of age are the greatest risk for severe disease.

As the summer comes to a close, mosquitoes will switch from biting birds to searching for any source of food, Hunter added, meaning more people could be exposed.

"Having your screens and windows in good fix, making sure they don't have any holes". "But no, you should run out and grab it and use it".

"Mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water, so homeowners need to be vigilant in eliminating places where water can collect and stand in their yards and gardens".
