Posted:

NEW JERSEY – Camden County has confirmed its second case of West Nile Virus this year.
A 65-year-old man was admitted to a Camden County Hospital with typical West Nile symptoms on September 12th. He was then transferred to a Philadelphia hospital on September 20th.
Individuals over the age of 50 are more likely to develop serious symptoms of the mosquito-borne disease. The county mosquito commission checks thousands of mosquito breeding sites and sprays for mosquitoes whenever a pool tests positive.
Officials do want to remind residents to check their property for any object that holds water creating a mosquito breeding ground.
