Dr. Alvaro Garza, San Joaquin County public health officer, has reported the county’s first human West Nile virus infection of the year. The virus was detected in a middle-aged person through routine blood donation test screenings, according to Garza.

“As we cautioned the public in March, this confirms there is a real risk of transmission of WNV to people in our county,” he said in a press release. The county’s first report of WNV last year was detected at the end of July.
