Quick note..Health Alert..Eastern Equine Encephalitis

A 3rd case of eastern equine encephalitis [EEE] in a horse, this time near
Reddick, was reported in Marion County this week [week of 9 Aug 2010]. It
is the 2nd case in less than a month and caused the county health
department to issue a notice to advise residents of the risk.

Though rare in humans, EEE can be transmitted through mosquito bites.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the infection
affects a small number of humans every year, mostly in the Atlantic and
Gulf Coast states. Most of those affected have no symptoms, but in severe
cases headache, high fever, chills, and vomiting are common. Severe cases
can be fatal.
