"People that are most at risk or have the more serious symptoms are people who are over 60 years of age or that have certain medical conditions, like cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, or people who have received organ transplants", she said. About one out of 150 infected people develop swelling of the brain or brain tissue, that in some cases, can result in death. Less than 1 percent of infected people with West Nile Virus will develop severe symptoms. People who have had WNV before are considered immune.

The best way to deal with West Nile is prevention, and that involves taking steps to prevent bites.

Bites from Culex pipiens, or the northern house mosquito, are the primary cause of WNV human infections in MI.

He said the last time Guilford had a reported case of the disease in a human was back in 2000.

Be sure door and window screens are tight fitting and in good fix. Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out. Birds, horses and humans can get infected through a single bite. Turn wading pools upside down when not in use. Severe symptoms of WNV are associated with encephalitis or meningitis, and may include a stiff neck, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, muscle weakness, convulsions and paralysis.
