"West Nile virus is a disease that should not be taken lightly," said Dr. Raoult Ratard, State Epidemiologist. "As long as the mosquitos are out, everyone is at risk. Protection is as simple as wearing mosquito repellant and covering your skin. You can also prevent mosquitoes from reproducing by dumping standing water from containers around your home."
"Our sympathies go outout to the family of the state's first West Nile virus death," said DHH Secretary Kathy Kliebert. "We can't stress enough how important it is for everyone to be vigilant and take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their families from this deadly disease. Mosquito repellent, long sleeves and pants will protect you from mosquitos and ultimately this virus."
Michael F Neidorff , Centene's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The Company delivered strong top and bottom line growth in the second quarter, driven by the ongoing successful execution of our growth and diversification strategy. We are pleased with the results in the first half of 2014 and have increased our full year guidance to reflect the additional growth and profitability in the business."
"For reasons we still don't understand, some severe cases move so quickly, there's nothing you can do for the person, healthy or not" Ratard explained
