Hello, this is fuschia99.
West Nile Virus, as you may know, is a deadly virus which you can get from
mosquitoes. Now, the people infected with the West Nile Virus in the U.S. has doubled, making over 1400 people infected
Thirty-four states reported a total of 1442 cases, and 21 deaths. Last
week there was only 715 cases, and 14 deaths.
Colorado and the central United States continue to be the hardest hit.
Colorado's 635 human cases lead the country, followed by 204 cases in South
Dakota, 190 in Nebraska and 106 in Texas.
Here are some precautions I think that EVERYBODY should take:
1. Always wear bug spray.
2. Wear light-colored clothing, and try to cover up as much as possible.
3. Wear bug nets when you are in woody areas.
This is fuschia99, signing out. Goodbye.
