Last week, Maryland health officials reported the first confirmed case of a West Nile-infected adult in that state. The increase, officials said, is widespread across the county and has happened earlier this summer, compared with previous years. But officials say to avoid false positives, which are common among such infections, a second sample will be sent to NIV in 10 days for a confirmation. There were no reported cases of West Nile in the county previous year. WNV infections are generally mild but can, in more serious cases, cause encephalitis, meningitis, loss of vision, paralysis, coma, tremors, convulsions and death.
