CJOB News Team reporting
Two Winnipeggers have tested positive for West Nile virus after they donated blood last week. Manitoba Health officials say both donors were in their 40s and from the Winnipeg Health Region.
Doctor Margaret Fast of Manitoba Health told CJOB 20 per cent of people infected by the virus often experience flu - like symptons but there can be more severe cases..
Hot and humid weather over the last few weeks has resulted in the development of Culex tarsalis mosquitoes, the carriers of West Nile.
