Man, 85, is tenth case of West Nile reported in Kane County
The Kane County Health Department reported a 10th case of West Nile virus, an 85-year-old Elgin man who was hospitalized and has since been discharged.
County health officials will report new cases once a week on Wednesdays until the end of the West Nile season, which ends with the first hard frost, spokesman Tom Schlueter said.
This summer was hot and dry, the perfect combination for the Culex mosquito, the species that is known to carry the virus. Schlueter said health officials expect to see cases until the West Nile mosquito season is over.
