State says 128,000 acres in Michigan sprayed for EEE on September 30

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) said Tuesday evening that about 128,000 acres in Michigan were treated with aerial sprays to combat the mosquito-borne Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) on September 30.

According to the Berrien County Health Department, due to aerial crews running out of time, Berrien County was not sprayed on September 30.

The health department said Berrien County spraying was rescheduled to the night of October 1, weather permitting. 

Early Wednesday morning, the health department said an update would be released later in the day on whether or not Berrien County was sprayed overnight.

The MDHHS reports that as of September 30, EEE has been confirmed in nine people, with three fatalities across the state of Michigan.

EEE cases have also occurred in 33 animals from 15 counties, the MDHHS said.
