The reported case is in Lincoln County, bringing the state total for 2013 to 7 cases, with one death. So far this year, cases have been reported in For- rest (2), Lincoln, Lowndes, Madison, Montgomery and Wayne counties. The MSDH only reports labora- tory-confirmed cases to the public. In 2012, Mississippi had 247 WNV cases and five deaths. Mississippians should take appropriate precau- tions to reduce the risk of contracting WNV and other mosquito-borne illnesses year-round: remove sources of standing water, especial- ly after rainfall; and if you will be in mosquito-prone areas, wear protective cloth- ing (such as long-sleeved shirts and pants) during peak times from dusk un- til dawn, and use a recom- mended mosquito repellent according to manufacturer's directions. Symptoms of WNV infec- tion are often mild and may include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, a rash, muscle weakness or swol- len lymph nodes. In a small number of cases, infection can result in encephalitis or meningitis, which can lead to paralysis, coma and pos- sibly death. For more information on WNV and other mosquito- borne illnesses, a check- list to reduce the mosquito population in and around homes, and recommended mosquito repellents, visit the MSDH website at www. or call the WNV toll-free hot- line from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 1-877-WST-NILE (1-877- 978-6453).

The funding is part of the CDC's State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Con- trol Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health program. "This is the first time our state has received funding to address the issue of obesity," said State Health Officer Dr. Mary Currier. '%Ve look forward to making strides against the problem of obesity that affects so much of our population." The funding comprises two components: a non-competitive component in which MSDH was awarded $619,000 annually, and a competitive component in which MSDH was funded for $1.1 million annually. All states and the District of Columbia were eli- gible to apply for the competitive component. Mississippi is one of 32 states to receive the competitive funding. "This funding will support a comprehensive, statewide approach to promoting health and controlling and preventing chronic diseases and their risk factors," said Dr. Currier. "Chronic diseases resulting from obesity, such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes, are the leading causes of death and disability in our country and in our state." MSDH will have five years to use the funding to implement programs to address obe- sity issues and submit results to the CDC. For more information on obesity, visit www.
