Nile fever: second case in Sardinia, an 86-year-old infected – Medicine

The local health authority of Olbia registered a case of Nile fever in an 86-year-old man. He is the second in Sardinia after the infection of a 72-year-old in the province of Oristano. The elderly man is hospitalized in the Infectious Medicine department of the Giovanni Paolo II hospital in Olbia.


The Municipality has already prepared the disinfestation of the affected areas and from tomorrow we will proceed with the disinfestation of the canals and the area around the Olbia Arena where the Red Valley Festival will be held, the flagship event of the summer in Sardinia where around 100 thousand people are expected .


“No alarmism, but of course it is necessary to enhance the ability of the community and individuals to reduce the outbreaks of larval development of the vector, i.e. mosquitoes – comments Mayor Settimo Nizzi – It is also advisable to adopt individual prevention measures, a recommendation that is especially valid for those at higher risk of developing the disease, such as the elderly and immunosuppressed people” .
