Another Louisiana West Nile Virus Death Confirmed
State health officials have confirmed Louisiana’s third West Nile virus death this year.
It was somebody in Rapides Parish — the second West Nile death in that parish this year. The Department of Health and Hospitals has also confirmed three new West Nile virus cases this year — all three of them were the most serious neuroinvasive disease. Two of those cases were in Lafayette Parish and the other in Ouachita.
