First Positive Indicators for West Nile Virus Reported in Needles
The Division of Environmental Health Service’s Mosquito and Vector Control Program (MVCP) have sentinel chicken flocks placed in various locations throughout San Bernardino County to detect West Nile Virus (WNV), a virus transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. If any sentinel chickens test positive for WNV, it means that the mosquito population in these areas are infected, increasing the possible risk of the public being infected. Chickens are not harmed by the virus. Three chickens from a sentinel flock in Needles were reported to have tested positive for WNV. This is the first positive indicator for WNV in San Bernardino County’s Colorado River Valley. Residents and visitors to this area should take appropriate precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites.
