Man Dies from West Nile Virus

Posted: Updated:

West Nile Virus has claimed a second life in North Dakota. The State Health Department says the state's second fatal victim was a man who lived in the southeastern part of the state and was older than 60. He had underlying medical conditions and died in the hospital.

"Even though the weather is getting cool out, there are still mosquitoes out there, and there will be mosquitoes until our first hard frost. So people still need to protect themselves against west nile virus," says Alicia Lepp, North Dakota Department Health.

So far this year, 101 West Nile virus cases have been reported in 28 counties. Last year, the state had 89 cases and one death.
