West Nile Virus confirmed in Santa Clara County


Mosquito control treatment is scheduled for Santa Clara and the northern end of the Mineta San Jose International Airport on Tuesday, June 23.


This comes after Santa Clara County’s Vector Control District confirmed adult mosquitoes collected around the city tested positive for West Nile Viurs.  


About 10% of the affected area is residential, with the rest being largely industrial.


West Nile virus is most commonly spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. Infected mosquitoes then spread West Nile virus to people and other animals by biting them.


The most effective way to prevent infection from ­­­West Nile virus is to prevent mosquito bites. Mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Use insect repellent, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, treat clothing and gear, and take steps to control mosquitoes indoors and outdoors.
