Nebraska Health Officials All Set To Fight West Nile Virus

It seems that Nebraska health officials are not leaving any iota of carelessness this time as there is lingering fear of West Nile virus outbreak. Though the impact of the same has reduced in recent years, there seems to be no place for laxity.

With the running warm weather and coming summer, it is quite expected that there would be threat of the infection to affect one and all. “It’s a neurological problem and if you’re bit by a mosquito and you start getting fever and chills, you’re not going to directly associate it with that mosquito bite because mosquitoes are all over the place in the summer”, said Deb Scholten, director of the Northeast Nebraska Public Health Department in Wayne, while asserting that there should be all possible measures put in place so that no one gets affected by the virus this time. There are expectations that the health department would do all in its capacity to manage the possible crisis.

Moreover, testing is expected to start in the state test pools of mosquitoes and dead birds for West Nile virus. There is need for one and all to understand the severity of the same and taken all possible measures to keep the risk at bay.
