One mosquito trapped in Montgomery County has tested positive for West Nile Virus. The mosquito was found in a relatively unpopulated area in the southwestern part of the county, Sanitarian Amber Reed said.

In order to keep area residents from panicking, Reed said it is best not to disclose where exactly the mosquito was found. On the subject of not panicking, Reed advises county residents to do just that: not panic. Though 22 mosquitos in 15 Indiana counties have tested positive no humans have contracted the virus so far this year. “I have the coordinates, yes, but it would panic more people,” she said. “A lot of that is because people misunderstand West Nile Virus – what it is, what it can do.”
