Summer may be coming to a close, but the threat of West Nile Virus continues.
The Department of Health has detected Pennsylvania’s first confirmed human cases of West Nile Virus this year.
A Montgomery County man tested positive for West Nile Aug. 7 and was hospitalized, and the infection was confirmed in a York County man July 20, who did not require hospitalization.
Health department spokeswoman Kait Gillis said both men are recovering.
Sixty human cases of West Nile Virus were recorded in 2012.
