Precautions come with West Nile risk
As we reported this week, Kanawha County has its first human case of the West Nile Virus, and that has increased talk about prevention and mosquito control. Insect repellant is key anytime you're outside, and if there is any standing water around your home it should be removed, since mosquitos like to congregate there. A Kanawha County man in his forties is being treated for the West Nile Virus now. If you have concerns, know that the environmental health department will come out and collect water samples to be tested.
