This time, the report, dated October 7 in Biscarros in Landes, concerns a person who had not left town in the 15 days before the first symptoms appeared. Which means, in other words, that the sting occurred in the sector. The virus in question has not yet been identified and the ARS determines that additional analyzes are underway. The patient has had flu-like symptoms and is fine. The competent authorities are now looking for other possible cases, as the disease can declare itself four to seven days after the bite.

Pending the continuation of these investigations, mosquito control operations will take place in seven sectors, four in Landes and three in the Gironde, on the night of October 21 to 22. The municipalities of Biscarrosse, Parentis-en-Born, in Landes, Bordeaux, Le Bouscat, Le Pian-Médoc in the Gironde, the areas frequented by the patient, will be carried out by the company Altopicus, which specializes in the field of medicine.
