West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever & EEE: FL Residents: BEWARE!
Mosquitos Spreading Disease & Death in Florida
Two people in the Tampa area have died from a mosquito-driven disease that's transmitted by horses who are not inoculated against eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), which can and does spread to humans. Now two others in Northern Florida have suffered the same fate.
This terrible disease kills one-third of its victims and there is no cure. EEE attacks the brain and if one survives, there's likely to be brain damage.
West Nile Virus and Dengue Fever Also on the Rise in Florida...
West Nile Virus and Dengue Fever are also spread by mosquitos. They are less dangerous than EEE but are still hazardous. 28 cases of Dengue Fever, acquired domestically, have been reported in the state while West Nile Virus has been reported in the majority of Florida's counties. Dengue Fever has also been found in the South Florida counties of Monroe and Broward!
The word is CAUTION!
Don't Be the Victim of a Deadly Mosquito!
If you live in Florida, you need to take measures to safeguard yourself and family. Dispose of any free-standing water that may be lingering around your house, in a pot or vase, for example, or perhaps in a bird bath. Standing water is where mosquitos breed!
Wear protective clothing when you go outside and use bug spray that contains DEET for protection against these disease carrying mosquitos!
