Dallas County Health and Human Services announced that someone living in the 75224 area code has been diagnosed with West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease.
It is the first human case of West Nile Virus in Dallas in the 2013 season, which started in May. Although it is unknown where the person contracted the virus, he or she lives in Elmwood, according to a newsletter from Councilman Scott Griggs.
Since last year, the county has tripled the number of mosquito traps to 90, and mosquito spraying has been frequent.
