State health officials have confirmed three more cases of West Nile virus in Louisiana this week.  

The Department of Health and Hospitals says that brings the total number of cases confirmed in our state this year to 34.  Two of the new cases were the most serious neuroinvasive disease.  There was one case each in Livingston and Rapides Parishes. There was also one case of West Nile fever confirmed in St. Martin Parish.

West Nile is transmitted by mosquitoes, so state health officials urge everybody to use caution when they’re outdoors — especially around dusk.  They also urge everybody to drain all standing water around their homes and businesses because that’s where mosquitoes breed.
