2 San Diego County Women Diagnosed With West Nile

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two San Diego County women have been diagnosed
with West Nile virus, bringing the number of human cases this year
in the county to three.

County health officials say a 38-year-old Carlsbad woman and a 58-year-old Del Mar woman were hospitalized in mid-July in separate incidents for treatment of meningitis after developing West Nile symptoms.

On July 22, health officials said a 24-year-old San Diego man had contracted West Nile.

The county had 15 cases of West Nile virus in humans in 2007 that were diagnosed in late-August, September and October.

The most vulnerable to the sometimes fatal virus are the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
