West Nile death confirmed in Jefferson County



Health officials have confirmed that someone in Jefferson County has died as a result of the West Nile virus. Little information was available, but the health department said it was the first death in the county and the second case of West Nile. The first human fall in the county was confirmed in mid-September. The West Nile virus is mainly transmitted by mosquitoes. In most cases, people infected with the virus either show no or relatively mild symptoms. However, less than 1 percent of those infected develop severe neurological conditions such as encephalitis or meningitis. In August, infected mosquitoes were found in Louisville and parts of southern Indiana. Several neighborhoods in Louisville were fogged afterwards.
