Minnesota’s first case of West Nile

Minnesota’s first human case of West Nile virus (WNV) disease of 2013 has been reported in a Murray County man. He became ill with West Nile fever earlier this month and is recovering, Minnesota state health officials reported.
They are now urging Minnesotans to protect themselves from mosquitoes by using mosquito repellents at dusk and dawn, the times when mosquitoes are most active.
West Nile virus is a potentially life-threatening disease and Minnesotans should protect themselves by routinely using mosquito repellents and taking other simple precautions against mosquito bites, Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) officials said.
Last year, Swift County saw two people fall ill with WNV. They were the first cases in the county since one person was infected in 2006.  Since the disease was first discovered in the state in 2002, Swift County has seen five cases. The other two were one each in 2003 and 2002.
