Mosquito Warning Issued After MI Resident Diagnosed with Dangerous Disease [VIDEO]
It's kind of scary hearing that a person from Michigan was diagnosed with a dangerous disease that has a 33% fatality rate and it's spread by mosquitoes. To make it worse, it can leave survivors with brain damage.
According to NBC25, An Allegan resident was diagnosed with what is called eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in late August. This is the first case reported in Michigan since 2016.
This thing is no joke. It can cause fevers, headaches, chills and nausea. Sometimes the symptoms can progress to brain inflammation, disorientation, seizures and coma.
This summer has been hot as hell and with all the rain we've had, mosquitos have been insane. They're everywhere, every single time you step outside. It's recommended to obviously put on mosquito repellent and wear long sleeve shirts and pants. The other night I was out and it didn't matter how much repellent I had on, those suckers were kicking my ass. They were even biting my girlfriend through her jeans. Mosquitos suck!
