Officials with the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services are reminding residents that even though the summer may be over, mosquito season is not.

The agency did not disclose any details about the victim in reporting the death Monday.

There's now another case of the West Nile Virus in Bay County, bringing the total to five.

For more information and surveillance activity about West Nile virus and other mosquito-borne viruses, visit this link. At the beginning of September, the municipality of Bourgas at the Black Sea issued a warning after a woman showed symptoms of West Nile fever.

"Langlade County residents should be aware of West Nile virus and take some simple steps to protect themselves", Thiede said.

The bulk of the reports have been from Anderson County, which has seen six birds and one other animal diagnosed with West Nile so far this year.

The risk of serious illness to most people is low. Fewer than one percent develop severe neuro-invasive disease.


Avoid being outdoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Apply an insect repellant with DEET, IR3535, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus to exposed skin and clothing.

Symptoms of severe illness can range from a high fever and headache to vision loss or paralysis, according to the CDC, and no vaccine or antiviral treatments are available.

Keep window screens repaired so that mosquitoes can not enter your home.

Wear protective clothing such as long sleeved shirts and trousers.

Remove water standing for more than 3 days from bird baths, pet dishes, flower pots, outdoor stored automotive tires or neglected swimming pools.

West Nile Virus can not be transmitted from person to person.
