West Nile Virus Reports up in 2017


(Wisconsin Radio Network) State health officials have reported three times as many cases of the West Nile virus this year than last. Three deaths have been attributed to the mosquito borne virus statewide, as part of 36 confirmed human cases and four probable ones compared to just 13 total human cases in 2016. Thirty-four people were hospitalized at some point this year due to West Nile, which normally starts killing birds and horses in the spring and summer before human cases are reported in August and September. A warm spell early this fall extended the mosquito season.  Eighty-percent of those infected with West Nile do not get sick from it.
