West Nile Virus in Maine

The West Nile virus is getting closer to home.  A second Maine mosquito pool this week tested positive. The latest in Gorham.  Earlier, it was a York County mosquito pool. No human cases have been confirmed in Maine and the Center for Disease Control is waiting to get the results back from two samples sent out of state for testing.
Officials in Texas continue tracking the spread of the West Nile virus, which has killed 21 people in the state so far.  Nearly 700 have become ill.

The virus gets contracted from mosquitoes bites. The bugs aren’t born with West Nile virus. They generally get it from biting birds that are infected.  Symptoms can include fever, headache and feeling tired. For the small percentage whose brains are affected, it can be debilitating and even deadly.
