As per the Butte County Public Health Department, the new cases are either in Leonard Marx or the south county, and every one infected is fifty five and more.
With this year's cases, Butte County presently includes a total of four cases. The primary case, elementary school-aged kid, was infected last month.
As of August 14, thirty seven human cases of West Nile River virus are from different counties in CA.
Dr. Mark Lundberg, Butte County health officer said that the risk of West Nile River virus has been more and more high in Butte County.
The risk of getting the virus is elevated in Butte County due to a rising mosquito population, Matt Ball, manager for Butte County dipterous insect and Vector management District, stated.
Ball stated, "It's imperative that residents assist with the hindrance of dipterous insect breeding by inspecting and eliminating all standing water from their properties."
