Peak season for West Nile virus nears
Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) officials encourage all Mississippi residents to take proper precautions to protect themselves as peak West Nile virus (WNV) season approaches.
Routine surveillance conducted by MSDH officials has identified WNV positive mosquitoes in the state, indicating that the virus is now circulating in Mississippi. Each year, mosquito testing is conducted in counties throughout the state where historically higher numbers of WNV human cases have occurred.
