2nd West Nile Case

A second case of West Nile Virus in Albemarle County has been confirmed. The first case was in a crow found on Garth Road in early September. This latest case, also avian-borne, was discovered on September 28th near Farmington. 128 birds have tested positive in Virginia so far this year, and there should be very few more cases between now and the end of the year, given that mosquito season is ending. No human infections have yet been reported in Virginia. WVIR had the story on their 11pm broadcast.
