First Human West Nile Case of the Year Reported in Wisconsin
As if mosquitoes aren’t annoying enough, the West Nile Virus only adds to our disdain of these little blood suckers. The first human West Nile case of the year has been reported in the state of Wisconsin.
KBJR-TV is reporting that the Wisconsin Department of Health officials say the case happened in Dane County.
During 2012, 57 Wisconsin residents developed symptomatic West Nile Virus infection, and five of these reported cases occurred among Dane County residents.
All we can do is to protect ourselves from mosquito bites as much as possible.
