First Manitoba case of West Nile virus this year found in Winnipeg-area man

WINNIPEG - Manitoba Health is reporting its first case of West Nile virus in a person this year.

The department says the man, in his 30s, is from the Winnipeg area.

He is showing symptoms of West Nile neurological syndrome, the more serious type of the virus.

Officials believe he got the virus, which is mainly carried by mosquitoes, this summer in or around the city.

The department also says a man in his 60s has also tested positive for the virus in southwestern Manitoba, but he contracted before this year.

The province says the risk for human exposure to West Nile this season is low.
