West Nile Back In Lincoln

We know the west nile virus is back in Lincoln this year. The virus can be fatal and is contracted simply by mosquito bites. The virus can cause horrible muscle aches and fever. Doctors say people who get the virus once and recover, are then immune. Health officials are asking everyone to get rid of any standing water around your home and wear mosquito repellant when you go outside. Last year, there were 16 cases of west nile in Lancaster county, one person died.
