WNV is endemic in the United States, and OH has reported positive cases in horses each of the last few years.

Skuza also said that people should use DEET mosquito repellent, and drain any standing water that is near homes or property.
The age of infected individuals ranges from 11 years to 94, but the average is 71 years, the center said.
In 2017, 51 human cases of WNV were reported in Wisconsin, which is the highest number since 2012.
South Dakota had nine, Iowa seven, Nebraska six and Alabama and Pennsylvania five each.

Of the three in Steubenville - one in Mount Calvary Cemetery and two in Union Cemetery - one sample from Union Cemetery tested positive. It's one of the first seven cases statewide this year, according to the state health department. "So we probably have 100,000 to 200,000 people that were infected in Louisiana, and that are immune", Ratard said.
