JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — With so much rain over the last several weeks, we’re seeing high water levels and standing water, which can bring concerns for mosquitoes.
The Mississippi State Department of Health tests mosquitoes to see if they are carrying the West Nile Virus.
So far, they’ve found one sample in Madison County, four in Hinds County and six in Forrest County.
We’ve already seen one human case of West Nile Virus in Forrest County as well this year.
