    California County confirms first instance of West Nile virus in 2019
    POSTED 11:24 AM, MARCH 15, 2019, BY CITY NEWS SERVICE

    SAN DIEGO — County officials confirmed Friday that they’ve identified the year’s first instance of West Nile virus after a Cooper’s hawk tested positive.

    Officials with the county’s Vector Control Program only found small amounts of the virus in the hawk’s tissues, leading them to believe it was an old infection. Last year, only one county resident contracted West Nile virus and ultimately survived, but the virus has spread to as many as 44 residents as recently as 2015. Six people died due to the virus that year.

                New Jersey confirms its earliest ever West Nile Virus case
                (Andre Penner)

                Updated 24 minutes ago
                LODI, New Jersey (WABC) -- New Jersey health officials have confirmed the state's first human case of the West Nile virus this year, the earliest it has ever been detected in state history.

                They say a Hunterdon County man in his 70s began showing signs of meningitis on June 21 and was hospitalized for several days.

                They later confirmed he had contracted West Nile virus, which is spread by mosquitoes that have fed on an infected bird.

                The man is still recovering at home. His name and further details about the case have not been released.

                Officials say 61 people in New Jersey were infected by West Nile virus last year, marking the highest number of cases ever reported in the state.
