Four more cases of West Nile virus have been confirmed in MS, bringing the state's total to 30 cases so far this year.

Officials say the latest cases involve a man in his 40s from Middlesex County and a man in his 60s from Bristol County, who remain hospitalized; and a woman in her 20s from Essex County, and a woman in her 80s from Suffolk County who were hospitalized during their illness.

MS reported 63 West Nile cases and two deaths in 2017.

"Perhaps it's due to our efforts in our larvaciding and adulticiding program that we do have here at the Tulsa Health Department and then also folks in the community taking the actions necessary to prevent mosquito bites, such as wearing DEET and draining their standing water and limiting their outdoor exposure", Rice said.
