First Probable Human Case of West Nile Virus Reported in Austin, Texas

Florida health officials reported their second confirmed case of the West Nile virus in late May and the region has reported several other cases throughout the summer. It is estimated that around 80 percent of those who become infected with the virus, which is spread through infected mosquito bites, experience no symptoms.

The first “probable human case” of the West Nile virus in Austin, Texas, since 2018, has been reported by local health officials.

Last week the Texas Department of State Health Services announced the first human case of the virus in an adult resident of Tarrant County.
