SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- The Illinois Public Health Department says it's recorded ten more human cases of West Nile -- bringing the state's total to 25 this year.
Public Health Director Eric Whitaker says this is the riskiest time of year to contract the virus, which is spread by mosquito bites.
So far in 2006, one person has died after contracting West Nile.
To date, 60 of Illinois' 102 counties have reported positive test results for West Nile virus in mosquitoes and birds.
