2 People Contract West Nile Virus — Indiana 2017


Two people from different parts of the state recently contracted the West Nile Virus on Friday, June 9th. These infections were discovered at hospitals in Hamilton and Lake counties. So far, no mosquitoes have been confirmed to have WNV in lab-test results in these counties. Therefore, these individuals may have been infected in other areas where WNV-infected mosquitoes are present for this year, or locally despite the lack of confirmed mosquito infections in Hamilton and Lake counties. To track WNV infections among Hoosier mosquitoes and people throughout the rest of spring, summer, and fall seasons, access the Indiana St. Department of Health's Arboviral Disease Map (↗). For a nationwide outlook on arboviral viruses and diseases such as Chikungunya, Dengue, Saint Louis Encephalitis, and West Nile Virus, access the CDC/USGS interactive disease map (↗).
