The EOHU is confirming the summer's second human case of West Nile virus in the region.

Dead bird reports and plenty of mosquitoes in the Madison area are signs to public health officials that the West Nile virus is still here, and will be so into early fall.

There have also been 333 surveillance pools in the province where mosquitos have been collected and have tested positive for the virus.

About 80% of people who get the virus don't know they have it.

It is not uncommon for infected mosquitoes and human cases to pop up this time of year, according to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

Officials are waiting on more test results to come back before definitely ruling it West Nile. Adults over 50 are most at risk of serious health effects.

"Buffalo County residents should be aware of West Nile virus and take some simple steps to protect themselves against mosquito bites", Loeffler said.

Less than 1 percent of people infected with WNV become seriously ill with symptoms that include a high fever, muscle weakness, stiff neck, disorientation, tremors, paralysis and coma.

"We had a warm winter, we've had a cool, wet summer, and all that contributes to the possible- kind of flawless storm for West Nile virus in southern Ontario this year".
