Triple-E Illness Found in Oneida County

Oneida County (WIBX) – The first case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis has shown up in Oneida County and claimed a horse in Westmoreland. The animal was euthanize last week and tests confirmed the illness.
Meantime, the county health department confirms a mosquito pool in the western part of the county has tested positive for Triple-E. The area which borders Oswego County was the same area where the disease was found last year. That area underwent aerial spraying to suppress the mosquito population.
Officials say the positive tests showed up in mosquitoes that feed almost exclusively on birds.
For more information on Triple-E you can go to the county website at www.ocgov.net.
