(NaturalNews) Having been needlessly worked into a panicked frenzy by the federal government and its ongoing fear mongering campaign about the supposed West Nile virus (WNv) epidemic, many Americans, particularly in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas, are now reportedly calling 911 every time they get a mosquito bite with concerns that they may have become infected with the disease.

CBS 11 News in Dallas reports that North Texans are bogging down the emergency response system with calls about mosquito bites, expressing fears that they might be the next person among the few dozen or so nationally to die from alleged complications associated with WNv infection. The paranoia has gotten so out of control that emergency medical services officials are now having to issue public statements in an attempt to quell public hysteria.

"We understand people's concerns regarding the West Nile virus, but in the absence of any symptoms ... a simple mosquito bite is really not a reason for someone to call 911," said MedStar Emergency Medical Services Public Affairs Director Matt Zavadsky in a recent statement, adding that having to send out emergency workers in ambulances to inspect mosquito bites makes these limited resources unavailable for real emergencies like automobile accidents and other life-threatening situations.

The mainstream media is not helping the situation, either, as many news outlets are continually repeating the overblown warnings by the CDC that this year's WNv outbreak is the worst on record. While this may be technically true based on the figures, the number of individuals legitimately harmed by WNv is still extremely low, and the average person's risk of contracting WNv and developing serious complications from it is basically zero percent.

But this has not stopped cities and counties across the nation from overreacting to this latest propaganda campaign, and spraying of extremely toxic chemicals on the entire population as a supposed solution to the problem. The spraying, of course, is killing a lot more than just mosquitoes -- bees, bats, birds, and many other important insects and life forms are also becoming casualties in this massive chemical crusade to stamp out a disease that, for all intents and purposes, is a statistical non-threat.

Humans are also threatened by these mass chemical sprayings, as the active ingredients used in the pesticide concoctions are known neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors. Ironically, more people will likely end up becoming harmed as a result of these mass sprayings than the number that otherwise would have developed serious complications as a result of exposure to WNv.
