West Nile virus appears early, sends 2 to hospital
SPRINGFIELD – Illinois health officials say the hot, dry weather is to blame for more mosquitoes infected with West Nile virus this year and two earlier-than-usual human cases of the illness.
Amy Poore of the Cook County Health Department said Tuesday a Des Plaines woman and a Rolling Meadows woman are being treated at hospitals for the virus. Both patients are in their 60s.
Usually, the first human case of the virus is announced in August.
