In 2017, 51 human cases of WNV were reported in Wisconsin, which is the highest number since 2012. In rare cases West Nile may cause encephalitis, or inflammation of the brain.

St. John's Riverside Hospital Dr. Paul Sasso knows the symptoms of West Nile on a more personal level, as his father contracted it last summer.

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit noted the virus spreads via mosquito bites, but the risk of West Nile infection is low.

The centre for disease control says most people who get infected will show no symptoms, but the disease can be serious for one of about every 150 who are infected. They're diagnosed only if their blood is tested. Ten sentinel chickens also tested positive.

CDC figures lag behind state reports. Louisiana reports there have been 31 residents with unsafe nervous system infections, including two deaths, and 13 cases of West Nile fever.

Variations from state to state and year to year depend on various local factors, Ratard said. "Over the years, as the herd became more protected, less cases". Louisiana had 142 nervous system infections by this week in 2002, out of a total of 204 for the year.

There were almost 3,000 cases of encephalitis and meningitis caused by the virus in both 2002 and 2012.
