The health officials in the coastal areas have raised concerns over the expected outcomes of the wet winters. They fear the development of virus-carrying mosquitoes.

There is a scope of the development of the West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis due to the rainy winters.

Both of the infections are communicable in human beings and Coastal Georgia has been witnessing the diseases for a long time in history.

In the beginning of this year, a West Nile virus infection was reported in Clayton County. On a good note, no cases of sickness have been confirmed so far in Chatham County.

Henry Lewandowski, the Director of Chatham County Mosquito Control, said he and his colleagues are putting in the best of their efforts in detecting as well as preventing any deadly infections in the people.

“We were getting suspicious results that indicated there may be some Eastern Equine Encephalitis activity – that’s what we were looking at last fall when the winter hit”, he said.

Following that time, Mosquito Control has been focusing on Culiseta melanura, the mosquito species responsible for sustaining the EEE cycle.

Timely control efforts hitting the western part of the county, wherein hardwood flood arouses finest breeding conditions for Culiseta melanura has been attained.
