West Nile Virus Activity Increases in Saginaw County Birds
Routine mosquito-borne disease surveillance conducted by the Saginaw County Mosquito Abatement Commission (SCMAC) has detected evidence of an increase in West Nile virus (WNV) activity in Saginaw County. Four birds (3 crows, 1 blue jay) collected from the City of Saginaw, Birch Run Township, Bridgeport Township, and Saginaw Township tested positive for WNV last week bringing the total WNV detections to seven (6 birds, 1 mosquito collection) for the season. There have been no human WNV cases confirmed in Michigan this year.
