Massachusetts Man Reportedly in a Coma After Contracting Brain Infection From a Mosquito 

 

A rare, sometimes fatal viral infection spread by mosquitoes has resurfaced in Massachusetts—and has likely sent at least one man into a coma. Over the weekend, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health reported that a local resident contracted the Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus. Dozens of communities remain at critical or high risk for the virus, and residents are being advised to stay indoors at night.

Deadly Virus Found In Florida, Causes Brain Swelling From Mosquito Bites 

 

The latest U.S. healthcare news warns the rapid spread of a deadly mosquito-borne virus known as Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in Florida that causes brain-swelling.

According to reports, many sentinel chickens have tested positive for EEE.

The confirmed presence of the virus in Orange County’s sentinel chickens have raised “the risk of transmission to humans,” according to a statement by the county’s department of health.

Sentinels are fowls tested for the West Nile virus and EEE. Their blood samples may show the presence of the diseases but it is not necessary that they would suffer from the viruses.

The EEE virus spreading to humans via carriers like mosquitoes will lead to brain infection and swelling.

Maine Confirmed Its First Case of a Rare Tick-Borne Virus in Years. Here's What to Know About Powassan 

 

Health officials have confirmed that an individual in Maine is sick with Powassan virus disease, marking the first time since 2017 that a person in the state has come down with the rare and serious tick-borne illness.

The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday that a southern Maine resident was hospitalized for Powassan encephalitis—brain inflammation associated with the virus—after showing symptoms in late June. The announcement did not specify the individual’s current condition, but health officils doctors to stay vigilant about the potential spread of Powassan throughout the summer and early fall.

Here’s what to know about the tick-borne Powassan virus disease.

WHAT IS EEE VIRUS? MOSQUITOES CARRYING DEADLY VIRUS FOUND IN NEW YORK AND MASSACHUSETTS 

 

Health officials have confirmed the potentially life-threatening Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus has been found in mosquitoes in both New York and Massachusetts.

New York's Oswego County Health Department said on Tuesday that two mosquitoes taken from a field station at Toad Harbor Swamp in West Monroe tested positive for the EEE virus, Sycaruse.com reported.

On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health revealed EEE-carrying mosquitoes were identified for the first time this summer in mid-July, The Boston Globe reported. The bugs were found in the towns of Easton, Freetown, and Fairhaven, as well as the city of New Bedford.

Oswego County Public Health Director Jiancheng Huang told CNY Central: "We are working closely with state Department of Health to monitor mosquito activity around the county and will take actions as deemed appropriate based on consultations with state and regional partners."

Airline Passengers Horrified As Bugs Fall From Overhead Compartments Before Takeoff 

 

Passengers on board an Air Transat Canada airline were horrified after an army of bugs fell out of the overhead compartments of the plane. According to reports, the incident took place when the plane was about to take off from London Gatwick to Vancouver on Wednesday.

One passenger said dozens of cockroach-type insects fell into screaming flyers, while many were seen scattered along the aisle of the Boeing A300. Flight attendants reportedly told the passengers to squash them.

"A bug fell right down by my seat and another landed in the lap of the man next to me. The flight attendant told him to squash it. It was disgusting," Jenna Sullivan, 25, told U.K.'s Daily Mail. "Most of the bugs seem to be at the back of the plane, but others on board said they saw them running up the main aisle."

This 10-Year-Old's Feet Were Covered in Green and Black Lesions After Insects Infested Her Skin 

 

An otherwise-healthy 10-year-old girl is featured in an alarming case report from the New England Journal of Medicine. The girl had been playing in a pigsty in rural Brazil two weeks before visiting a doctor. For the 10 days leading up to her appointment, she had developed painful and itchy lesions on her feet and toes, according to the report, with "black dots in the center."

The girl turned out to have a skin condition called tungiasis, a parasite infestation caused by a female sand flea. The flea, called Tunga penetrans, can spread the disease to humans and animals.

SCIENTISTS SAY SKRILLEX STOPS MOSQUITOES FROM BITING 

 

It sounds like an April Fools’ prank, but scientists say that music by dubstep star Skrillex can keep mosquitoes from biting.

If it’s a joke, it goes deep: the research is at the center of a paper published in the journal Acta Tropica last week, and the story has been picked up by the BBC News, HuffPo, and The Telegraph.

Assuming it isn’t an elaborate joke — and, given the timing, it’s hard not to be a little suspicious — the finding could suggest futuristic sound-based ways to keep disease-transmitting insects at bay.

Rising temperatures will help mosquitos infect a billion more people 

 

Mosquitoes are unrelenting killers. In fact, they are among the most lethal animals in the world. When they carry dangerous viruses or other organisms, a bite can be unforgiving. They cause millions of deaths every year from such infectious diseases as malaria, dengue, Zika, chikungunya, yellow fever, and at least a dozen more.

But here's the really bad news: climate change is expected to make them even deadlier. As the planet heats up, these insects will survive winter and proliferate, causing an estimated billion or more new infections by the end of the century, according to new research.

Scathing Report Accuses the Pentagon of Developing an Agricultural Bioweapon 

 

A new technology in which insects are used to genetically modify crops could be converted into a dangerous, and possibly illegal, bioweapon, alleges a Science Policy Forum report released today. Naturally, the organization leading the research says it’s doing nothing of the sort.

The report is a response to a ongoing research program funded by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Dubbed “Insect Allies,” the idea is to create more resilient crops to help farmers deal with climate change, drought, frost, floods, salinity, and disease. But instead of modifying seeds in a lab, farmers would send fleets of insects into their crops, where the genetically modified bugs would do their work, “infecting” the plants with a special virus that passes along the new resilience genes.

Pests to eat more crops in warmer world 

 

Insects will be at the heart of worldwide crop losses as the climate warms up, predicts a US study.

Scientists estimate the pests will be eating 10-25% more wheat, rice and maize across the globe for each one degree rise in climate temperature.

Warming drives insect energy use and prompts them to eat more. Their populations can also increase.

This is bound to put pressure on the world's leading cereal crops, says study co-author Curtis Deutsch.

Bees took over a Times Square hot dog stand 

 

When bees aren't interrupting baseball games in Arizona, they are apparently taking in the sights at Times Square in New York.

A section of Times Square was blocked off on Tuesday after a massive bee swarm invaded a hot dog stand. The collection of bees immediately became the biggest attraction at the New York tourist destination with hundreds of people lining up to snap a photo.

Chagas Disease, Which Is Spread By The “Kissing Bug,” Is Spreading In The U.S., According To These Doctors 

 

If the threat of bed bugs weren't enough to make you want to sleep in a full bodysuit complete with a hoodie and face mask, Chagas disease, which is spread by the "kissing bug," has been found in 28 states in the United States, a new report from the American Heart Association says, with a potential 300,000 Americans infected. And, similar to bed bugs, triatomine bugs bite at night. Unlike bed bugs, which are more of a physical nuisance and mental nightmare, kissing bugs do transmit disease. According to a research team based at Texas A&M University, 50 percent of triatomine bugs are infected with Chagas disease, a potentially life-threatening illness that's easily spread to humans.

These insects, which can grow to the size of a penny, are referred to as kissing bugs because they tend to bite unsuspecting sleepers on the face, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted on its website. "After they bite and ingest blood, they defecate on the person. The person can become infected if T. cruzi parasites in the bug feces enter the body through mucous membranes or breaks in the skin," the CDC explained.

Woman In Critical Condition After Being Stung Over 200 Times by Africanized Bees 

 

A housekeeper in California was the target of thousands of honey bees in an attack that left her hospitalized and in critical condition, the Orange County Fire Authority tells PEOPLE.

After a team of housekeepers arrived at a client’s home in Orange County, California on Monday morning, one of the cleaners — a woman identified as Maria and in her fifties — ventured back outside to retrieve a mop from her vehicle.

But as she walked toward the car, a swarm of 30,000 to 80,000 Africanized honey bees that were hidden inside of a gas meter outside of the home suddenly emerged and attacked.
