Reducing the number of West Nile virus cases begins with you.
That was the message Tuesday at the 2010 West Nile Virus and Mosquito Control Conference at the Davison County Fairgrounds in Mitchell.
West Nile is a disease in birds that can be spread to humans through mosquito bites. It’s killed 26 people and sickened more than 1,700 in the state since 2002, according to the Associated Press.
State Epidemiologist Lon Kightlinger was one of the featured speakers at Tuesday’s event.
