Mosquito-Borne Horse Disease Spotted in Northeast Ohio alongside Human Cases in Neighboring States

Lake County General Health District (LCGHD) is reminding residents to protect themselves from mosquito bites following recent reports of human cases of Eastern Equine encephalitis (EEE) in nearby Michigan and Pennsylvania. Ohio Department of Agriculture has reported three cases of EEE in horses in northeast Ohio. “This is a serious disease, and the most effective way to prevent your horses from getting EEE is to have the animals vaccinated by a licensed veterinarian,” said Ohio Department of Agriculture State Veterinarian Dr. Tony Forshey. “It is spread through mosquitoes and can also affect people, so taking steps to manage the mosquito population, such as eliminating standing water, will also help prevent EEE and other vector-borne viruses, like West Nile virus.”
