Although most people don't develop symptoms, approximately 20 percent of those infected will develop an infection known as West Nile Fever, according to the CDC.

There have been more than 240 cases of west nile virus and 8 confirmed deaths since it came to Butte County in 2004.

In June, Cascade County Commissioners approved increasing the Mosquito Control Fund by $45,000 for additional chemicals needed to treat mosquitoes in our area after heavy rains and flooding.

Additionally, on August 6, the Mississippi State Department of Health confirmed six additional cases of West Nile virus, bringing the state's 2018 total to 13 so far.

There is also a small risk of infected people developing the more serious West Nile virus neuroinvasive disease, which could cause inflammation of the brain and can also be fatal.
