GREELEY, Colo. (AP)- Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have been trapped in Weld County.
County officials say the mosquitoes were found this week in two of the three testing zones in the county.
Dr. Mark Wallace, executive director of the Weld County Health Department, says the overall risk posed by the virus remains low, but he notes that in recent years, it usually hasn't shown up until July.
Initial human symptoms of the virus can include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, weakness, and rash. More severe symptoms can include stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, vision loss, paralysis, and even death.
