DeKalb man diagnosed with West Nile
The first human case of West Nile virus in DeKalb County was reported late last week, according to the DeKalb County Health Department. A 59-year-old man was diagnosed with the virus, which is typically mild in humans.
The last weeks of summer have seen an increase in both confirmed and suspected cases of West Nile.
“At least locally it is happening, but I don’t know about nationally,” said Christy Gerbitz, operations director at Oaken Acres Wildlife Center in rural Sycamore.
