Be wary of the West Nile Virus
The Contra Costa County Mosquito and Vector Control District is warning residents to wage war again this year against mosquitoes, which carry West Nile virus. The district reports that last year in this county, eight people contracted the virus and two people died.
West Nile Virus and Mosquito and Vector Control Awareness Week, which took place April 23-29 throughout the state, resulted in a resolution acknowledging that 24 people have died and 1,200 have been made ill in California by West Nile virus in the past two years.
