ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Department of Health has reported the first human case of West Nile Virus in the state this year.  A man from Murray County became ill with West Nile fever earlier this month and is now recovering.  The disease is spread by mosquitoes and health officials are urging people to protect themselves by using insect repellents and minimizing the time outside during the dusk and dawn prime mosquito feeding hours.  Most people who get West Nile can fight off the virus without any symptoms.  However, those with weakened immune systems can get seriously sick with the disease. Wisconsin has also reported its first human case of West Nile Virus.
