During that time, 48 people have died from the infection in North Carolina through 2016.

Install or fix screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes outside, and if possible, use air conditioning. Eliminate or reduce all sources of standing water where mosquitoes can lay eggs like wading pools, wheelbarrows, containers, rain downspouts and gutters, pet dishes and birdbaths and more.
