2nd West Nile Virus death reported

Thursday, the City of El Paso Department of Public Health announced the second West Nile virus-related death in the area.

Officials say the patient was an elderly woman who lived in the 79927 zip code, and had several underlying medical conditions.

“As we extend our thoughts and prayers to this woman’s family and friends, we are reminded why preventing this disease is so important,” said Robert Resendes, Public Health Director. “While these two deaths involve individuals who had underlying conditions, residents should know that this disease can also affect a healthy person and become life-threatening.”

She was the fourth person reported to have contracted the disease this year.
