DHH Confirms One New Case of West Nile Virus

One more case of West Nile virus was confirmed in Louisiana this week.  It was the most serious neuroinvasive disease and it was confirmed in Ouachita Parish.  

That brings this year’s total number of cases to nine — four of those have been neuroinvasive.  Though that’s the most serious form of the disease, it’s also the least likely to be contracted.

DHH says humans contract West Nile when they are bitten by mosquitoes infected with the virus.  That’s why state health officials urge you to protect yourself from mosquito bites when you’re outside and to do everything you can to eliminate mosquitoes around your home or business.
