EEE found in mosquitoes in Newington, NH

NEWINGTON, N.H. (AP) -- The New Hampshire Health Department says a batch of mosquitoes in Newington has tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis.

The virus was recently detected in Exeter, too.

In 2012, there were 13 positive tests for EEE, including nine mosquito batches and four animals.

Symptoms may include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, and sore throat. There is no treatment for the disease, which can lead to seizures and coma. The health department says symptoms usually occur four to 10 days after being bitten.
