The man - who is the first confirmed human case of West Nile in Idaho this year - fell ill but has since recovered, SWDH spokesperson Katrina Williams told KTVB.

West Nile virus is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Several mosquito traps in Canyon County have tested positive for the virus this season, including one collected on July 20 in the Roswell Marsh area off Highway 18 near the Idaho-Oregon border.

China says United States tariff threat runs against trend of the times

Last week, Maryland health officials reported the first confirmed case of a West Nile-infected adult in that state. The increase, officials said, is widespread across the county and has happened earlier this summer, compared with previous years. But officials say to avoid false positives, which are common among such infections, a second sample will be sent to NIV in 10 days for a confirmation. There were no reported cases of West Nile in the county previous year. WNV infections are generally mild but can, in more serious cases, cause encephalitis, meningitis, loss of vision, paralysis, coma, tremors, convulsions and death.

Symptoms of the viral disease vary from person to person.

"With high levels of [West Nile Virus] in mosquitoes and the recent rains leading to even more mosquitoes, it's important for residents of Fairfax County to take precautions to protect themselves and their families", the Fairfax County Health Department said in a news release. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, headache, body aches, skin rashes and swollen lymph nodes.

To reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, be sure to remove any standing water from items such as pots, hot tubs, pools, buckets or wheelbarrows.

The most vulnerable to the virus are people age 50 and older and those who have weakened immune systems because of diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
