West Nile virus activity is moving east.

North Dakota's Department of Health says West Nile virus cases more than tripled since July 30.

So far in 2018, DCHHS has reported three West Nile virus infections.

The health district said mosquito testing, which began in June is expected to continue through the late fall.

According to an announcement from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office, the rates of mosquitoes carrying West Nile have been much higher this year.

Symptoms of West Nile virus include fever, confusion, muscles weakness and severe headache. In a small number of cases, especially among those with pre-existing medical risk factors, West Nile can be life threatening.

Elon Musk's '420' Tesla Tweet Sends Shares Rocketing
If Musk can't prove the allegedly secured funding at $420 per share, he may be accused of market manipulation or market fraud. Such a deal, if it went ahead, would take Tesla out of the glare of Wall Street but might limit its access to capital.

They say two pools of mosquitoes tested positive for the virus.

Residents can reduce the opportunity for mosquitoes to breed and multiply.

The Health Unit is urging the public to take steps to prevent mosquito bites.

Use insect repellent when outdoors; a repellent with DEET or Icaridin offers the most effective protection.

Since 2000, 134 cases of the virus have been diagnosed in CT residents and three people have died after being infected with the virus.

Take extra protection measures at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
