Medical Alert

A medical alert tonight, the Illinois Department of health's confirmed the first human West Nile Virus case in our state for 2007.

The Dupage County woman's in her 50's and got sick earlier this month. Experts are warning us, this is a reminder that we need to protect ourselves against mosquito bites now.

West Nile's transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that's picked up the virus from feeding on an infected bird.
