WEST NILE VIRUS ACTIVITY INCREASING IN NEW YORK CITY
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) today announced a recent increase in the number of mosquito specimens and dead birds that have tested positive for West Nile virus. The findings were made in the eastern section of the Bronx, the eastern section of Queens, and in southern Brooklyn. With the arrival of the peak of West Nile virus season, DOHMH Commissioner Thomas R.

This is particularly important for residents of neighborhoods where West Nile activity is highest.
