Animals test positive for West Nile virus in Brevard (local6)
Brevard County officials are urging people to take precautions to avoid mosquitoes after several chickens and one horse tested positive for the antibodies to West Nile virus.
"As of Monday, there have been several sentinel chickens testing positive for West Nile at four of our 11 sentinel sites", Don Walker, a county spokesman, said via email.
There has also been one horse case of West Nile virus confirmed, Walker said.
"While these numbers are not cause for alarm, it is prudent for citizens to take note and take preventative actions where appropriate," his email said.
West Nile virus, transmitted by mosquitoes, can cause encephalitis, a potentially fatal inflammation of the brain. Most people can fend off the virus, but senior citizens and people with compromised immune systems are vulnerable.
Chickens carry the three viruses that cause encephalitis in humans but don't get sick or die from them. So mosquito control officials draw blood weekly from sentinel chickens at about a dozen sites countywide to test for the antibodies to the viruses.
