No human cases of West Nile virus have been identified in Manitoba at this time, the release said, and there are now no orders for adult mosquito control in the province. Mosquitoes become infected by biting infected birds. Three Connecticut residents were diagnosed and hospitalized due to West Nile infection.

Those infected with WNV may show severe symptoms, mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. Their bites can spread diseases such as Zika and West Nile. If contracted, symptoms include mild flu-like symptoms, progresses into disorientation, seizures, coma, encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain) and in the most severe cases, individuals die.

When infected with WNV, about 4 out of 5 people will not have symptoms and will develop immunity after clearing the infection. In very rare cases, the virus can lead to neuroinvasive diseases like encephalitis or meningitis. While a vaccine is available for horses, there is no current vaccine to prevent illness in people.
