The state has tested more than 31,000 mosquitoes and more than 1,500 mosquito pools.  54 of pools tested have shown positive results for West Nile Virus.  The majority, in Wayne (24), Bay (13) and Kent (8) counties.

EEE has been detected in animals in 13 counties.  Ingham, Eaton and Clinton are not included.

EEE is a serious disease in horses. Protecting horses with approved EEE vaccines is an important prevention measure. Other wild animals have died as a result of EEE this year, including two grey wolf pups at Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek.
