Randall County Man Dies of West Nile

The West Nile Virus has taken its first human life in the Texas Panhandle. An Amarillo man died there over the weekend. The man was hospitalized last week with a fever and a headache and died Sunday in the hospital.

The Texas Department of Health reports 30 horses in Lubbock County have contracted the disease, but no humans. The weather brings good news since cooler temperatures reduce the mosquito population, thereby greatly decreasing the risk of West Nile infection.
