Second human case of West Nile found in Denton

The Denton County Health Department alerted the city of Denton today that a second person living within the city limits has been diagnosed with West Nile virus. The city raised its public health alert to Risk Level 5 and announced a special call meeting of the Denton City Council to consider whether to order ground spray in the affected area.

The council will meet Tuesday at 1 p.m.

The first human case was diagnosed earlier this summer, but no positive mosquito pools showed up in the city until this month.
