Protecting Against the Zika Virus in Elmwood Park, Wisconsin & Northern Illinois

What's the trendy new disease being pushed by the media? It's the Zika virus ... and it's transmitted by mosquitoes.

 

Uh oh. Summer is coming. Mosquitoes, too.

Should You Be Worried About The Zika Virus in Elmwood Park?

Well, no. The mosquitoes that will soon be buzzing Elmwood Park, don't harbor the Zika virus. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not a single person has contracted the virus from a mosquito in the contiguous U.S.

 

Foreign countries are different. Zika virus is a danger if you travel to Mexico, the Caribbean and some South American nations. Tropical mosquitoes in these areas carry the virus. More than 350 "travel-related" Zika cases have been reported in the U.S., where people returned from a foreign country after being infected.

 

The glaring threat of Zika virus is its connection to severe birth defects, including brain damage. Pregnant women, or those planning to become pregnant, should be especially wary about foreign travel.

 

Otherwise, Zika virus disease isn't fatal. It does have some undesirable symptoms – fever, rash and joint pain. So, if Zika comes up in conversation this summer, rest easy. Like malaria and dengue fever, it's borne by tropical mosquitoes that don't frequent Elmwood Park, southeastern Wisconsin or northern Illinois.

Not Out of the Woods Entirely

Just like mosquitoes love woods, though, we aren't out of the woods regarding mosquito-transmitted illness. West Nile virus, which appeared in the U.S. about 15 years ago, is a risk. In the Elmwood Park area, Illinois had 72 cases reported in 2015. Wisconsin had nine.

 

Elmwood Park local mosquitoes can transmit West Nile virus. Its danger to people varies. In the vast majority of cases, an infected person has no symptoms.

 

About 1 in 5 infected people displays fever and other symptoms: headache, body pain, vomiting and rash. Most recover in full.

 

Yet, a fraction of those infected encounter serious neurologic illness, and can even die. People over sixty are at highest risk. With Elmwood Park summer activities nearing – pool parties, family gatherings, the 4th of July and others – it's worth considering how to guard yourself and others from the West Nile virus.

 

Protecting against mosquitoes, period, lessens the chance of running into one (or more) with West Nile. A mosquito repellent treatment by The Mosquito Guy keeps mosquitoes away for thirty days. We travel to Elmwood Park and throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
