SIOUX CITY IS SAFE FROM WEST NILE…FOR NOW

SIOUX CITY—EVEN WITH AN ABUNDANT AMOUNT OF MOSQUITOES IN SIOUX CITY, NO WEST NILE REPORTS HAVE BEEN RECORDED.

SIOUXLAND DISTRICT HEALTH DEPUTY DIRECTOR CHUCK CIPPERLEY SAYS NO ONE IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF IOWA HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH WEST NILE.

CIPPERLEY SAYS ITS BEST TO DEPRIVE MOSQUITOES OF BREEDING GROUND, WHICH MEANS EMPTY STANDING WATER IN BUCKETS AND GUTTERS.

MOST WEST NILE VICTIMS ARE UNAWARE THEY HAVE THE VIRUS, BUT MOST DO SUFFER A SLIGHT FEVER.
