Another Brazos County resident has contracted West Nile Virus.
It was reported to the Health Department Wednesday and is the fourth human case this year.
Health officials say the middle-aged Bryan woman is doing well after being treated and released from the hospital.
Just last month, an elderly Bryan woman died of West Nile.
The Department of Health Services has confirmed 30 human cases of neuroinvasive West Nile in Texas residents this year, and 18 cases of the milder flu-like form of West Nile.
Also, more mosquitos have tested positive for the virus. This batch taken from Eisenhower Drive in College Station.
Authorities want to remind residents that all of Brazos County is positive for WNV.
Your best protection is preventing the bite by following the four D's:
-- Drain standing water around the house, including tires, cans, flowerpots, rain gutters, buckets, wading pools, puddles, etc. Trim grass and shrubs and do not over water lawns and gardens.
-- Wear insect repellent containing DEET.
-- Stay indoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
-- Dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors to prevent bites.
