So far across Ontario this year, there have been 41 pools of mosquitoes that have tested positive. There have been 2 human cases of the virus, and now, mosquitoes in Erin have tested positive for the west nile virus.
They were caught in a trap, and sent for testing. Health Protection Manager Shawn Zentner, with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, says while there have been no confirmed human cases in this area, this serves as a reminder to protect yourself from mosquito bites.
Around the house, you should get rid of any standing water on your property, and that includes pool covers and even saucers, under flower pots. To protect yourself, you should wear long sleeves and long pants when outdoors, and use an insect repellent with deet. Mosquitoes are active and dawn and dusk.
Media and online experts say the level of “social media paparazzi” surrounding Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is
unprecedented. Another social media frenzy was sparked over the weekend by
videos showing Ford enjoying a night on the town on Friday.
At one point Ford was surrounded by people shooting video of him
and taking pictures. Many people posted on Twitter that Ford appeared drunk — a
charge he denies. He says he only had a couple of beers.
A political science professor at the University of Toronto says
the attention Ford is attracting now is largely due to the recent
publicity over allegations of a video appearing to show him smoking
crack. Peter Loewen says people realize there is an audience if they can
get video of Ford doing anything that might raise eyebrows.
Loewen says that gives citizens a reason to videotape the mayor
wherever he goes.
