Default Canada- Birds no longer tested for West Nile Virus

Birds no longer tested for West Nile Virus
HEALTH: Residents urged to reduce the risk

Birds no longer tested for West Nile Virus - The Lindsay Post - Ontario, CA
excerpt from above:
Quote:
"In the past, dead birds were a good indicator of West Nile virus activity in Ontario. Now that we know West Nile virus is here to stay in Ontario, tracking dead birds is no longer deemed necessary," said Atul Jain, acting assistant director of environmental health with the Health Unit.

Makes sense to me. WNV isn't going anywhere so might as well educate the public on how to avoid mosquito bites.
