According to Dr. Amy Person with the Benton-Franklin Health District, "Reports of West Nile virus activity in mosquitoes are a reminder that each of us needs to take steps to prevent mosquito bites".

KEELPNO said the patients are from western Attica, but noted that the virus' circulation areas in the current season can not be safely predicted, as WNV's epidemiology is determined by many factors.

The presence of WNV was confirmed by the Massachusetts State Public Health Laboratory today in a mosquito sample that was collected June 20 in the town of Weymouth in Norfolk County.

At risk populations include the elderly, and people with chronic illnesses.

West Nile virus is spread through the bite of an infected mosquito. It is usually older adults, those over 50 years old, who run a higher risk of getting a severe infection, with a high fever and flu-like symptoms.

Residents are reminded to protect themselves from mosquito bites and mosquito-borne diseases.

In 2017, California reported 553 human WNV cases, including 44 fatalities.
