I I II IIn I e greeted parade observers at the sponsored by the South Central More birds positive for West Nile Virus The South Heartland District Health Department has received a positive result for West Nile Virus from a bird found in the district according to Joyce Crawford, executive director. The Ne- braska Health and Human Services System reported a blue jay which had been collected in Adams County on June 3, reported positive. The South Heartland District Health Department serves the counties of Ad- ams, Clay, Nuckolls and Webster. Sur- veillance activities are ongoing in all four of the counties. Infected birds are an important indicator that alerts people to the presence of the virus. Monitor- ing the virus by testing bird popula- tions has been proven effective in other states as well as in Nebraska. Crawford explained the health department is working with other entities as well as the general population to collect blue jay, crows and raptors. West Nile Virus can be transmitted also to humans and horses. It's the mosquitoes that transmit the disease to human, not the birds. The birds only give the indication the virus is present. The illness is not spread Person-to- person. Citizens who see sick or dying crows, bluejays or raptors should con- tact the South Heartland District Health Department at 402-462-6211 or toll free at 1-877-238-7595. Crawford ex- plained anyone with a dead bird in their yard can call the health depart- ment and make a report on the bird, but only crows, blue jays and raptors are being accepted for testing. The birds must also be in good condition, dead less than 12 to 24 hours. Arrangements can be made to get the bird to the state's laboratory for testing. The virus first appeared in New York City in 1999 and has expanded across the United States, affecting hu- mans, horses and birds. The greatest risk for infection is during the late summer and early fall because the mosquitoes that transmit the virus in- crease during summer. Nebraska re- ported 174 human cases of West Nile Virus disease in 2002 with eight deaths. There were 1,100 horses in the state also infected with the disease. West Nile is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. In turn, the mosquito can pass the and Pepsi Products Offer good through July 13, 2003 24-Pack 250N.
