The reported case is in Madison County. The MSDH only reports lab- oratory-confirmed cases to the public. In 2012, Mississippi had 247 WNV cases and five deaths. "This is actually not the first time we have had cases reported this early in Mississippi. We have had cases in March before and as early as January in previous years. This serves as a reminder that WNV can occur year-round, even if we are not in the peak summer months of July, August, and September," said MSDH Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers. "Also, the time- frame of when the first case is reported has no effect on the type of WNV activity we31 see in a particular season. The first cases of the 2o12 were reported in FABRIC 00DOCK 5trt..

Mississippians should take appropriate precau- tions to reduce the risk of contracting WNV and other mosquito-borne illnesses year-round: remove sources of standing water, espe- cially after rainfall; if you will be in mosquito- prone areas, wear pro- tective clothing (such as long-sleeved shirts and pants) during peak times from dusk until dawn; and use a recom- mended mosquito repel- lent according to manu- facturer's directions. Symptoms of WNV infection are often mild and may include fever, headache, nausea, vom- iting, a rash, muscle weakness or swollen lymph nodes. In a small number of cases, infec- tion can result in encephalitis or meningi- tis, which can lead to paralysis, coma and pos- sibly death.
