Crawford County bird tests positive for West Nile

Los Angeles County health officials warned residents Monday to protect themselves against the mosquitoes that transmit West Nile virus, as the number of people killed by the disease in L.A. County this year reached seven.

According to Crawford County Health Director Gloria Wall, residents observed the crow and noticed it was sickly, so they reported it to the state dead bird hotline.

It is estimated that 20 percent of people who become infected with West Nile will develop less severe symptoms including fever, headache and body aches, nausea.

The Wisconsin Division of Public Health will continue surveillance for West Nile virus until the end of the mosquito season.
