Cheyenne, WY – A Campbell County man has become the first
resident of the state and the third in the nation to contract the West Nile virus this year. The Wyoming West Nile case comes three weeks earlier than the first recorded case in 2003. The Campbell County man developed West Nile fever and is currently recovering. Wyoming State Health Officer Doctor Brent Sherard says the early discovery may portend a serious West Nile virus season in the state this year.
