DRUID HILLS, GEORGIA – The latest report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that the death toll in the recent spread of West Nile’s disease has increased to more than 4,000 mosquitoes.
More than half of these fatalities are believed to have occurred in the state of Texas, where around 2,100 Culicidae have either been mercilessly stepped on, swatted, or obliterated with bug spray in the last three weeks alone.
“We are monitoring the situation very carefully,” said CDCP health agent Monica Clark. “As we have seen: West Nile’s disease can be fatal, affecting not only mosquitoes but wasps, house flies and insects of all kind. A fly swatter does not discriminate.”
