First Confirmed Local Case of West Nile

The Miami Herald reported today that a man from Miami-Dade county contracted the first locally acquired case of the West Nile virus since 2009.  The article states that the confirmation has led to a mosquito advisory being issued for the Miami-Dade county.  The man has since fully recovered from the disease, which claimed the lives of two Miami-Dade residents in 2009.  Officials from the county have since advised residents and visitors to take precautions so that they avoid getting bitten by the disease-carrying mosquitos.
