Eight West Nile cases here from not a good skeeter

By Elsa Maxey

The number of West Nile cases was predicted to rise and it has.  The Fort Bend County Health & Human services reports that it has received a confirmation of three additional West Nile illnesses over the weekend. The count is now at eight cases in Fort Bend County of both West Nile fever and West Nile Neuroinvasive disease.

The eight cases are in all age groups with the youngest group in a 0-14 category, the oldest, 55-74. Four cases are from Katy, three from Sugar Land – all adults, and one from Richmond. The male-female breakdown shows that of the total number of cases, there are more women that have been reported with the illness, five, in relation to males, three.

The county health office further reports that to date, there have been no deaths in Fort Bend County due to West Nile Virus.

Residents are advised that symptoms of West Nile fever includes fever, headache, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, skin rash, and swollen lymph glands. West Nile Neuroinvasive disease symptoms are more serious and include headache, high fever, stiff neck, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, coma, and paralysis.

The total number of West Nile cases reported in Texas to date is 1,127. Statewide, there have been 50 deaths from the illness this year. West Nile illness is a mosquito-borne disease, according to health officials. Researchers indicate that the West Nile virus can sometimes become a long-term illness with lingering symptoms.

Residents are encouraged to do as the slogan suggests, “Fight the bite” by taking precautions. For more information, visit fortbendcountyhhs.com or contact Melanie Manville at 832-473-2444 or melanie.manville@co.fort-bend.tx.us.
