EEE fears sweep US: Officials in 3 states warn residents to stay inside at dawn and dusk and to NOT touch dying

By Natalie Rahhal Deputy Health Editor For Dailymail.com

Published: 14:36 EDT, 29 August 2019 | Updated: 14:36 EDT, 29 August 2019

At least five people have contracted Eastern equine encephalitis in three states
The virus kills about a third of humans who develop it and several have been left in comas or on life support
One case is confirmed in each Michigan and New Jersey
Four confirmed cases of the mosquito-borne disease have been verified in Massachusetts where one woman has allegedly died of the disease
Residents in one town are being warned not to touch dead birds that may be infected - or bring them to local health departments

Officials in New Jersey, Michigan and Massachusetts are advising people to cancel end-of-summer picnic dinners and stay indoors at dusk and dawn to stay safe from EEE-carrying mosquitoes.

EEE - Eastern equine encephalitis - is a virus carried by the insects which causes severe brain swelling and is deadly in 30 percent of cases.

It's historically rare, striking some 10 horses and people, respectively, a year.

Until this year, that is. Cases have been surging in the US as rising temperatures drive mosquito population booms.

Bites are the primary way the bugs transmit the disease to humans, but officials in one Massachusetts town are begging residents not to touch dead birds that may be infected.

Sounds way blown out of proportion to me. Cancel plans? Stay indoors at dusk and dawn? Give me a break.

Also, I wonder if any of those Asian Tiger mosquitoes are infected, because those suckers are vicious and are out in the day.

Bill Gates ran a DARPA experiment to unleash mosquitos whose bite would administer vaccines- (or toxins?)
Ran first tests in Florida. Anyone else recall?

except E coast temps have been historically low this summer. Only couple days above 90. In past it would be weeks of such heat.
