"Every year in Los Angeles County, we see cases of West Nile virus infection, which can be serious even deadly, especially for people over 50 and those who have existing health problems", said Health Officer Muntu Davis for Los Angeles County.

One person in San Fernando Valley and another in the southeast region of Los Angeles County are recovering after contracting the West Nile virus and falling ill in late July, officials announced Monday. Starting at the skin, use EPA-approved insect repellents, wear clothing that covers skin, use screens on windows and doors, eliminate or reduce standing water around your home where mosquitoes breed, and take these precautions when traveling overseas.

No people have been afflicted with the virus so far.

Symptoms of these diseases might include headache, rash, high fever, stiff neck, mental confusion, muscle weakness, tremors, convulsions, coma, and paralysis.

In Los Angeles County, specifically, an estimated 10,000 people are infected with West Nile virus - though not all cases are "reported or recognized as West Nile virus" as not everyone infected show signs of illness, the county health department said. Though serious illness can occur in people of any age, it is most likely among people older than 50.
