Del. Reports Two More West Nile Cases

Posted: Updated:

 

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Public health officials say two more cases of West Nile virus has been confirmed in residents, bringing the number infected to five, including one death.

The Division of Public Health said Tuesday that a 73-year-old Newark man is hospitalized in critical condition with the virus. A 46-year-old Harrington man was treated and released from a hospital with the disease. Officials say the Harrington man may have contracted the virus in Maryland or Washington.

This is the second largest yearly total in state history. There were 17 cases of West Nile virus in Delaware in 2003.

West Nile virus is transmitted by mosquitoes.
