First West Nile Case Confirmed In South Dakota

June 27, 2014, 11:58 AM

First West Nile Case Confirmed In South Dakota
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota has its first confirmed case of West Nile virus this year.

The state Health Department says the case is in a Hughes County resident who is in his or her 20s. The person was not hospitalized.

State Epidemiologist Lon Kightlinger is reminding people to protect themselves from the virus, which is spread by mosquitoes. Since 2002, the state has documented more than 2,000 West Nile cases and 32 deaths.

People can reduce their risk of getting the virus by using insect repellant, limiting time outdoors and getting rid of standing water where mosquitoes can breed.
