New Orleans Detects West Nile in Mosquitoes

New Orleans officials say West Nile virus has been detected in mosquitoes collected in the city.

No human West Nile cases have been reported in New Orleans so far this year, although one human case has been reported in St. Bernard Parish.

Most people infected do not get sick. However some develop flu-like symptoms and a few will develop serious illness.
