Hillsborough County, Fla. (Dec. 27, 2023) - Hillsborough County Water Resources is issuing a precautionary boil water notice for some customers in the HCPUD Northwest drinking water system.
 
Due to a water main break, the minimum water pressure in the County's water distribution system dropped below the required regulatory level in some areas of the water system. Because of this, the Department of Health in Hillsborough County requires a precautionary boil water notice to be issued.

MALARIA OUTBREAK HITS SARASOTA; BE CAREFUL OUT THERE.
 
MALARIA OUTBREAK HITS SARASOTA; BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. 
 
Four people in Sarasota have recently caught malaria - the first local spread of the disease in 20 years. But they have been treated and recovered from the potentially deadly mosquito-borne illness, according to the Florida Department of Health, which issued a statewide advisory Monday (June 26, 2023).
 
A fifth case was reported last week in Cameron County, Texas, about 1,300 miles from Sarasota County, according to Texas health officials. The person had spent time working outdoors and had not traveled out of the country, said Patch . com.
 
Malaria is a serious and potentially fatal disease transmitted through mosquito bites. About 2,000 U.S. cases of malaria are diagnosed each year — the vast majority occur in travelers coming from countries where malaria commonly spreads.
 
Since 1992, there have been 11 outbreaks involving malaria from mosquitoes in the U.S. The last one occurred in 2003 in Palm Beach County, Florida, where eight cases were reported, Patch . com reported. In Texas, the last locally acquired case occurred in 1994.
 
The most common symptoms of malaria are fever, chills, sweats, headache, body aches, nausea, and vomiting. Symptoms typically start seven to 30 days after infection, Patch . com said.

USA's MOST SERIOUS MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASE IN NW HILLSBOROUGH - The Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County has issued an advisory (Sept. 13, 2022) to Hillsborough County residents after two horses in northwest Hillsborough tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis, the most serious of the mosquito-borne viruses for humans.
 
Patch.com notes that there is no vaccine to treat people who contract the disease, making it fatal in up to 45 percent of cases - though there's a vaccine for horses that is 80 to 90 percent effective.
 
People under the age of 15 or over 50 are at the greatest risk for severe disease. The DOH-Hillsborough says an average of 40 people are infected with several types of mosquito-borne viruses each year.
 
For the majority of people, symptoms include fevers, joint pain, joint swelling, back pain, rashes, headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue and redness around the eyes.
 
Some people who contract Eastern equine encephalitis develop seizures, neurological deficits or comas. People with severe encephalitic can go into a coma.
 
About 30 to 45 percent of people with Eastern equine encephalitis will die, making it the most serious mosquito-borne disease in the United States.

In Florida, mosquitoes have been known to transmit:
 
Chikungunya
Dengue fever
Eastern equine encephalitis
St. Louis encephalitis
