The Health Department has confirmed another human case of the West Nile Virus.
A 71-year-old Cleveland man is the latest to be sickened. A 19-year-old Cleveland-area girl was previously hospitalized in Cuyahoga County, and another Ohio teen was so bit by an infected mosquito in Putnam County.
Inspectors from the Health Department will be on the city’s east side today to pour poison into catch basins so the larva doesn’t hatch.
The number of WNV-positive mosquito pools in the State of Ohio increased from 52 to 450 during the month of August.
