Confirmed Human West Nile Cases Now Nine

A day after the number of state-confirmed human cases of West Nile doubled, it's grown again.

The last remaining presumptive positive case of the virus in Brazos County has been confirmed by state health officials. That means the number of human cases officially stands at nine, which is three-times the number of cases than last year.

Health officials say the entire region is positive for the disease, and continue to urge residents to take appropriate protection.
