  • Dallas, Texas Health Authorities Report 10 Nile Virus Infections
  • They warn of seasons and advise how to take care of yourself so as not to contract the disease
  • The DCHHS issues recommendations, since they add four deaths from these cases

The authorities of the Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS, for its acronym in English) add 10 infections of Nile virus in Dallas County, Texas and 4 deaths, according to information published on the news portal of DallasNews.

This virus season coincides with the one still in force crisis by the coronavirus, so the concern of the health authorities is evident.

Given this, the doctor Philip Huang, county health director, said: “Dallas County continues to see Nile virus activity in our community. Please take steps to avoid mosquito bites and to reduce the population of these insects ”.

It has been said that throughout the county there are positive samples of mosquitoes that are transmitters of the disease, which is why the DCHHS warns the population of this situation.

Given this, they ask people to be alert to the presence of this fly, so it is advisable to wear long-sleeved clothing as well as pants.

In addition, DCHHS asks to avoid going out during sunrise and sunset, which are the times when the presence of this mosquito can be most perceived.

The DCHHS authorities also ask the population to use mosquito repellent and a very important detail, that in the houses, people must clean any water container.

And it is that these can serve as vectors of the transmitting mosquito, hence the importance of not accumulating useless objects.

On the next page we will leave you more information about this Nile virus disease that occurs in Dallas, Texas.

The 10th case of a person infected with the Nile virus in Dallas, Texas, is a 39-year-old man.

Health authorities confirmed that there have been two deaths in Denton and Tarrant counties, respectively.

Mosquito activity increases as temperature increases. One of the areas of greatest concern is DeKalb County in Georgia, a hot spot for mosquitoes year after year, according to WSB-TV Atlanta.

Since June, workers from mosquito control teams began spraying human-safe larvicides.

Authorities say this type of spraying prevents mosquito larvae from turning into adult biting mosquitoes.

With the coronavirus still raging, neighbors are doing their part to prevent other diseases like West Nile Virus.

Mosquitoes can transmit a number of diseases. The most common of all is known as the West Nile virus.

This virus causes fever and other symptoms in one in five infected people and so far there is no vaccine or treatment to combat it.

Doctors say that despite the fact that this disease can cause death, most people do not develop any symptoms.

In August, 11 mosquito-borne dengue cases were confirmed in Florida and one West Nile virus case in Long Beach, California

Authorities in various states in the United States have reported other viruses and diseases that they recommend not losing track of.

The Florida Department of Health confirmed the 11th case of dengue in the Florida Keys in late August, the NY Post reported.

All cases of this mosquito-borne disease were reported in Key Largo, south of Miami.

Alison Kerr, a spokeswoman for the Florida Keys, told the Miami Herald that they conducted “epidemiological studies to determine the origin and extent of these infections.”

At that time, they considered that all the cases contracted the disease directly in the town in the south of the state.

Kerr also indicated that in the last week of June eight of the cases were registered and that the most recent patient received treatment for his recovery.

In 2020, there have been two cases of West Nile virus in people in California.

Last June the first case was registered in Stanislaus County, in the north of the state.

The Long Beach Department of Health indicated that some of the symptoms of West Nile virus are fever, body aches, nausea and vomiting. Some cases could get complicated and develop brain paralysis or swelling.

Given this, the administration of President Donald Trump proposed giving border authorities powers to deny asylum to people from countries with high rates of deadly contagious diseases, in what represents the most recent action in a series of regulations to drastically raise the standard of who qualifies for humanitarian protections, according to The Associated Press.

The Department of Homeland Security and Justice said in a joint proposal that denying asylum to people from high-risk countries would fight disease in the United States, in some cases preventing them from entering the United States. His argument is based on experiences with the coronavirus pandemic that still plagues the United States.
