West Nile virus found in mosquitoes in Worcester

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) announced late last week that West Nile virus had been detected in mosquitoes in Worcester for the first time this year.

It was confirmed by the Mass. State Public Health Laboratory in three mosquito samples collected July 1 in Worcester. No human or animal cases of the virus or Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) have been detected so far this year. There is no elevated risk level or risk level change associated with this finding.
