First 2 human cases of West Nile in CT reported

The risk of West Nile virus infection is at a level not seen since 2012 when an outbreak infected 290 IL residents, the North Shore Mosquito Abatement District announced Thursday.

Given the hot summer southern Ontario has been experiencing, Miller said it does appear the virus has been off to a slower start when it comes to positive test results.

The New Jersey Department of Public Health reported that 284 mosquito pools in 20 counties have tested positive for WNV. Last year, the RIDOH State Health Laboratories changed their testing methodology to use a more sensitive testing method which may account for an increase in positive results going forward.
