Avera Medical Minute: West Nile Virus Live 6/30/10

Posted: Updated:

If you've been outside in the evening lately, you've probably spent a lot of time swatting mosquitos. It's important to remember that those pesky bugs aren't just a pain in the neck, they can be deadly. Dr. Jennifer McKay from Avera McKennan joins us live to talk about the dangers of West Nile Virus.

Dr. McKay says, "The best thing you can do is to avoid the bites in the first place by using repellent or avoiding mosquitos all together when they are most active at dusk and dawn. If you think you may have West Nile see your doctor right away."
