West-Nile-Virus-carrying mosquitoes detected in Tulsa

Authorities of the Tulsa Health Department (THD) confirmed the presence of West Nile Virus (WNV) in the mosquito samples collected from a trap in Tulsa County. As per WHO and the American Mosquito Control Association, there is no evidence that mosquitoes can transmit COVID-19, a virus that affects the respiratory system and spreads maximally via droplets when an infected person sneezes, coughs or talks. Mosquitoes can transmit viruses like WNV, and hence, people are recommended to use repellents containing DEET.

THD functions on an efficient budget to control mosquito populations by nationally-recognized mosquito surveillance programs which also helps to affirm the presence of mosquito-borne illnesses in the community. The target of the surveillance is to identify the presence of mosquitoes, to know its abundance, species, make a hazard appraisal, and give a premise to control. Control strategies incorporate larviciding and spraying when required. The mosquito surveillance has implemented new testing guidelines and is working to trap potential WNV positive mosquitoes as soon as possible. Every year since 2003, human cases of WNV disease are observed in Tulsa County. The virus infects human via mosquito bites, and the symptoms of this disease include headache, sudden onset of fever, muscle weakness and dizziness. Precautions to be taken are:

  • Do not dump waste materials in stagnant water and drain out such items, so that mosquitoes do not get a place to breed.
  • Use DEET containing, or CDC approved mosquito repellents.
  • Ensure gutters are not clogged.
  • Encourage people around you to dump and drain as well as use repellents.

City of Tulsa and bus manufacturer company debates over lease renewal

The city of Tulsa found a 20-year-old tenant IC Bus of Oklahoma in January with a lease default

for its 1 million square feet owned property. The city has thus notified its parent company

Navistar regarding the termination of the lease on Fev 14th but the company expressed their intention

of extending the lease-up until May 29th and both parties agreed to this.

The company is a local school bus manufacturer with 1600 employees, the agreement originally

took place in late 1999 to Navistar for as long as it dutifully maintains the facility well.

The assessment carried out by Cynergy in August reported under maintenance after thoroughly

examining roofing, heating, electrical and plumbing system.

Navistar's president of operations, Phil Christman said “Over the past 20 years, we’ve been

able to create 1,600 good-paying manufacturing jobs, “We spend $750 million each year with

vendors and suppliers, and support more than 100 local businesses. We do not understand why

City officials suddenly want to break the long-term framework and threaten to evict us.”

The lease was originally drafted for a term of 15 years which could be extended by five more

years on renewal of the lease, but in case of violations of terms stated in the agreement the lease can be terminated.

Tulsa Mayor G.T Bynum said “The City of Tulsa is currently negotiating the renewal of a lease on

one million square feet of industrial work space owned by the citizens of Tulsa, The tenant has

leased that space for two decades at a total lease price of one dollar. The only thing required of

the tenant under their contract is that they properly maintain this taxpayer-owned facility so it is


“A public relations campaign launched (Tuesday) grossly mischaracterizes these

negotiations in an obvious attempt to politicize them. My response: the citizens of Tulsa will not

be played for suckers. I remain confident we can identify common ground to secure jobs and

properly maintain this facility. We’ve done so with great success during my time as mayor with

other tenants, and I see no reason why this case would be any different.”

The original lease said Navistar may have 500 employees by the end of 2001 and 1,200 by the

end of 2005, The Tulsa plant now employs 1,600, according to the company.

Plant manager Rodney Tharp said “The lease was built on the ability to provide jobs

and revenue locally, We’ve been able not only to do that, but we’ve exceeded that by about 30


The city demanded Navistar to improve those facilities that are compromised which include

painting, carpeting, extensive LED lighting, parking lot and road resurfacing and the replacement

of freight elevators.

To this Tharp said “I don’t think the value of new carpet is worth putting 1,600 jobs at risk,

putting brand-new elevators in a plant that doesn’t use elevators, I don’t know how that is going

to help John Smith out here who is having to put rivets in a bus do his job better.”

Navistar stressed on how much they have been contributing indirectly to the local workers,

the plant which manufactures 75 buses a day pays $19 per hour as starting wages while

experienced workforce get up to $32 per hour, thus contributing as much as $60 million to local

workers annually.

He urged the local employees to join the "Save Tulsa Jobs" campaign and express their support

to protecting their jobs.
