Three More West Nile Victims

1 decade 2 years 10 months ago Wednesday, October 03 2007 Oct 3, 2007 Wednesday, October 03, 2007 3:26:39 AM CDT October 03, 2007 in News

These three bring the total for the county up to eight and the state total to 48.

This is four more cases than at this time last year.

The new cases in Boone County were from two separate parts of Columbia; one in the central city near Providence and Sexton, and the other on Stadium and West Worley. 

The health department says victims included two 60-year-old men and one 45-year-old man.

All are doing well.

The health department sprayed in the areas of the bites on Tuesday morning.

According to the health department, weather conditions last year and birds which are no longer immune to the disease are two reasons why West Nile has been more prominent this year.
