West Nile Virus Turns Up In Sangamon County

For the first time this year, West Nile virus has been found in a mosquito collected in Springfield. 


The virus… which can be transmitted to humans by mosquito bite… has now been found in mosquitoes or birds in 17 counties, although no human cases have been reported yet this year.  It first showed up in Sangamon County in a sample collected last week. 


State health officials say the presence of the virus shows the importance of taking proper precautions against the disease, by using insect repellent and eliminating standing water around your home.
