Mosquito-borne illness in Simcoe Muskoka

Mosquito-borne illness in Simcoe Muskoka

We often talk about mosquito borne diseases such as malaria, Japanese Encephalitis, Dengue, Chickugunya and Zika, at our clinic particularly when folks are travelling to Africa or South East Asia. But you don’t have to travel very far to be concerned about mosquito borne illnesses. West Nile Virus (WNV) is still a concern in Simone Muskoka and through-out Ontario. If you spend any time outdoors you need to consider personal protective measures (PPM) to prevent being bitten. PPM are the only preventative strategy we have to prevent getting WNV, and tick bites too! Check out the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit website for the most current information about WNV and ticks in our community.
