Connecticut Mosquitos Test Positive For West Nile


The Connecticut Department of Public health says mosquito samples in Greenwich, Stamford, Darien and Bridgeport have recently tested positive for the West Nile Virus. The individual is a man in his 50s who was likely exposed to the virus in southwestern Essex County or eastern Middlesex County.

The dead birds found in Davis that tested positive for West Nile were a black-crowned night heron found east of the city on July 30 and a California scrub jay found near Fifth Street and Pole Line Road on August 2.

"West Nile virus can be passed through the bite of an infected mosquito and may cause serious illness".

It is the first positive result of the virus in the area this year.
