West Nile Virus Shows Up in New Places in West Texas

The West Nile Virus has now been confirmed in four areas on the South Plains. The Texas Department of Health says horses in Swisher County, Deaf Smith County, Lockney, and Silverton all tested positive for the West Nile Virus. So far, only the horse in Lockney has died. The other three horses are recovering. A spokesman from the state health department also says there are several other horses from those same areas currently being tested. Results should be back in a couple of days.

Meanwhile, a truck driver in the Amarillo area is being tested for a number of diseases, including the West Nile Virus. The Texas Department of Health says he was reportedly bitten by a mosquito in Louisiana. Test results are not expected for several days. The man is not hospitalized which indicates his symptoms are not severe.
