SD Has First West Nile Case Of The Season
PIERRE, SD - South Dakota has its first human case this year of West Nile virus.

The state Health Department on Friday said the case was in a Brown County resident between 20 and 29 years of age.

West Nile virus was first identified in South Dakota in 2002.  Since then, more than 1,700 human cases have been reported, and there have been 26 deaths attributed to the virus. Most people who get West Nile do not become seriously ill.

The Health Department says people should take precautions against mosquitoes, which carry the virus.
