Toronto mosquitoes test positive for West Nile
Toronto Public Health received reports today that mosquitoes in Toronto have tested positive for West Nile Virus. These are the first positive West Nile results for the city this year.
Toronto Public Health has 43 mosquito traps throughout the city and sends mosquitoes for laboratory testing every week. The last human case of West Nile Virus was in 2007 during one of Canada's worst West Nile summers.
The best protection is prevention against bites, which includes using repellent and covering up (sorry, Lake Shore hopefuls).
More information is available on the City of Toronto website.
