Three types of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile virus at a Wethersfield testing site on Goff Road, officials said.

A crow tested positive in Sarnia in late July.

On August 3, the Iowa Public Health Department reported the state's first death from West Nile in 2018 was an 81-year-old man who lived in central Iowa.

Most people infected with the virus have no symptoms at all, or they have flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, body aches and fatigue.

DCHHS said there is now no vaccine or specific treatment for West Nile virus. Most people with these symptoms will recover completely on their own.
