A 70-year-old female in Kern County is the first confirmed human case of West Nile virus infection in California this year, announced Dr. Ron Chapman, state health officer and director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The woman was hospitalized, but is now recovering.

“This first confirmed West Nile virus case reminds us that we must take precautions to protect ourselves and our families from mosquito bites,” said Chapman. “West Nile virus activity is greatest during the summertime.”

West Nile virus is transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of an infected mosquito. The risk of serious illness to most people is low. However, some individuals – less than 1 percent – can develop a serious neurologic illness such as encephalitis or meningitis. People 50 years of age and older have a higher chance of getting sick and are more likely to develop complications. Recent data also indicates that those with diabetes and/or hypertension are at greatest risk for serious illness.

To date in 2012, West Nile virus has been detected in 15 California counties.

CDPH recommends that individuals prevent exposure to mosquito bites and West Nile virus by practicing the “Three Ds”:

DEET – Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaradin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535 according to label instructions. Repellents keep the mosquitoes from biting you. DEET can be used safely on infants and children 2 months of age and older.

2. DAWN AND DUSK – Mosquitoes bite in the early morning and evening so it is important to wear proper clothing and repellent if outside during these times. Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep mosquitoes out. Repair or replace screens with tears or holes.

3. DRAIN – Mosquitoes lay their eggs on standing water. Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flower pots, old car tires, rain gutters and pet bowls. If you know of a swimming pool that is not being properly maintained, please contact your local mosquito and vector control agency.

California’s West Nile virus website includes the latest information on West Nile virus activity in the state. Californians are encouraged to report all dead birds and dead tree squirrels on the website or by calling toll-free 1-877-WNV-BIRD (968-2473).

 

U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Yuma Sector seized eight makeshift backpacks containing marijuana and arrested four suspected smugglers on Sunday. The marijuana weighed a total of 189 pounds with an estimated value of $94,500.

Wellton Station agents detected the four subjects near Gila Bend carrying large rectangular backpacks through the desert. Agents quickly located eight abandoned bundles of marijuana and discovered tracks leading away from the stash. Agents followed the footprints and apprehended the four suspects hiding behind stacked bales of hay.

All suspects admitted to being citizens of Mexico who entered illegally into the U.S. The suspects and marijuana were transported to Wellton Station for processing. The marijuana will be destroyed per Yuma Sector guidelines.

The Border Patrol has made significant progress in combating transnational criminal organizations by impacting their ability to transport contraband deeper into the United States, and ensuring that smugglers face stiff federal penalties for their actions. In Arizona, the probability of being detected and facing consequences is higher than ever before.
