More West Texas West Nile

Karen McDonald with the Texas Department of Health says that the total of West Nile cases has now been increased to seven confirmed cases. Two horses in Swisher County, two in Briscoe, one in Deaf Smith, one in Floyd County, and one in Roberts.

McDonald says that the most important thing you can do to protect yourself against mosquitos is to eliminate their breeding grounds. Get rid of any standing water around your home. Change out the water in birdbaths, watering cans, and dog bowls often. Also, remember to keep the chemicals in swimming pools at adequate levels.
