Quebec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services has issued a warning that the West Nile virus is still a threat in most urban areas.

The ministry stressed the importance of adopting “simple and effective personal protective measures” against mosquito bites, since recent surveillance activities confirmed that mosquitos carrying the West Nile virus are active and circulating in Quebec, officials said in a statement released Monday.
