Health officials warn of deadly mosquito-borne virus found in Florida chickens

 Max Chesnes,USA TODAY 18 hours ago

STUART, Fla. - Several Florida chickens recently tested positive for a mosquito-borne virus known to sometimes cause fatal brain infection and swelling. 
According to a statement released Thursday by the Florida Department of Health in Orange County, several sentinel chickens recently contracted Eastern equine encephalitis virus and had antibodies present in their system to fight the disease.

Sentinel chickens are used for disease prevention research and are tested regularly for Eastern equine encephalitis and the West Nile virus.
Encephalitis symptoms usually emerge between four and 10 days after the bite, which usually include fever, disorientation and vomiting, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Go away! Here's how to stop mosquitoes from biting you this summer

About 30 percent of people infected with Eastern equine encephalitis die from the disease. 
Barry Alto, an associate professor at the University of Florida Medical Entomological Laboratory in Vero Beach, said the black-tailed mosquito is the primary carrier of encephalitis.

This species is most active near swampland during hot, damp summer months and typically bites during the two hours after sunset.
While infections typically rise in the summer, transmission can occur any month of the year, Alto said. Just because the disease was found in Orange County does not mean it is isolated, and it could spread around the state. 

The Treasure Coast is no stranger to mosquito-borne illnesses. West Nile virus was found in sentinel chickens in Martin County in 2018. Populations of these chickens are scattered across the state and experts are always monitoring the severity of contamination, Alto said.

"This is a very serious virus," Alto said. "You do not want to get infected with this." 
Even if the infection is not fatal, encephalitis can have life-long debilitating effects, including mental disorientation and brain damage, Alto said.
Preventing the disease with insecticide has proven difficult, as many mosquito populations are in protected areas that cannot be treated with the repellent.

There are at least 10 cases of encephalitis in humans each year, Alto said. Florida's sub-tropical climate and geography can make it an epicenter for disease contraction. 

Health officials said they will continue to monitor the infections and research prevention efforts. Florida Health reminds everyone to take the basic precautions necessary to avoid mosquito bites.
"Floridians should be paying attention to this," Alto said. "Avoid being bitten by covering up with clothes and repellent."

Radio Free Earth: Community Preparedness and Two Way Radios


In a post-global disaster world, predators and tyrants will have the best two-way radios, and they'll use them to surveil you at a comfortable distance.

What will you have? Signal flares and red bandannas?

If so, when you least expect it, the predators and tyrants will come to take a spoil and they will torture, rape, and kill without mercy.

This is why Radio Free Earth authors Marshall Masters and Duane W. Brayton have an urgent message for everyone with a serious interest in preparedness. That being, analog RF (radio frequency) is the heartbeat of freedom. Accept no substitutes.

Watch our free videos to learn how to stay safe and free with an affordable strategy for two way communication, both near and far.
