The state has now recorded a second human case of West Nile virus,  just a day after the season’s first.

State public health veterinarian,  Dr. Randall Nelson says it underscores  the Department of Public Health messages urging that everyone take the risk of mosquito-transmitted illnesses seriously.

Yesterday’s report was of a human case of the virus in a patient in his thirties, from New Haven.  This latest case is a person in his or her sixties from Stamford who has been hospitalized since late last month with fever and severe muscle weakness.
