The first ever case… that’s not something you want to place 1st in. WTEN reports that a 60 year old man contracted West Nile Virus and is now resting at home after a brief stint in the hospital. They say that all the flooding from Irene and whatnot has increased mosquito activity in the area. Scary stuff huh? As someone who’s battling Lyme disease, I now know that you must fear and respect the tiniest of bugs and insects. If you must spend time outdoors during the evening and dawn when mosquitoes are out the most, make sure to stock up on the bug repellent.
