Nassau officials confirmed a seventh human case of West Nile Virus in 2013 on Thursday.
A woman from the Town of Hempstead was confirmed to have West Nile virus, which was contracted during a warm spell in October, according to the Nassau County Department of Health.
Officials do not expect to see additional onsets in 2013, given that November already has seen “quite a few days of frost,” said Mary Ellen Laurain, director of communications at the county’s health department.
Symptoms of West Nile Virus can include headache, fever, aches, a rash and more.
Earlier Nassau cases in 2013 there were confirmed cases in the Town of Hempstead and in Oyster Bay.
Those with confirmed cases had been hospitalized and since released, Laurain said.
