ニュージャージー州の男性がウエストナイル熱の診断を受けて死亡, 当局は言う

治療後, 彼は亜急性ケアセンターに退院し、そこで亡くなりました, カムデン郡当局は土曜日に言った.

“ウエストナイルウイルスは通常、毎年少数のニュージャージー州の住民に影響を及ぼします, しかしながら, the prevalence of the virus has been increasing recently,” County Health Officer Dr. Paschal Nwako said in a news release. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and his family. The Camden County Department of Health is continuing to work with the Mosquito Commission to ensure that additional spraying and testing will be conducted in the area.

West Nile virus is the leading cause of mosquito-borne disease in the U.S., 疾病管理予防センターによると (CDC), and is most commonly spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito.

It’s not clear what the man had been complaining of prior to hospitalization, but most people – about eight in 10 — infected by the virus do not develop symptoms. About one in five may develop fever with other symptoms, such as headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea or rash, CDCによれば. For those diagnosed with febrile illness, most recover completely, but fatigue and weakness may last weeks or months.

About one in 150 people infected with the virus may develop severe illness impacting the central nervous system, such as encephalitis or meningitis, CDCによれば. Symptoms of severe illness could include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, disorientation, 昏睡, 震え, muscle weakness, vision loss, paralysis or other issues. People ages 60 and older are considered to be at greater risk for severe illness, along with those who have certain medical conditions like cancer and diabetes.
