Officials say two pools of mosquitoes have tested positive for the virus

The first West Nile virus-related death of the year in Dallas County has been reported, the county health department confirmed to WFAA on Tuesday.

There is new evidence of West Nile virus in Perth County.

"Even though serious West Nile virus cases in humans are rare, it is important to minimize our exposure", said Khan. In 2012, the last time Dallas County saw a major outbreak of West Nile virus, 398 residents contracted the virus and 21 died.

Lambton Public Health is encouraging residents to continue taking usual precautions to avoid mosquitoes and bites, as well as reducing mosquito breeding grounds around properties by eliminating standing water.

Symptoms usually develop between two and 15 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito.
