Two more confirmed cases of West Nile in Washington
WASHINGTON - A Benton County woman is the second Washington resident to be infected with West Nile virus without leaving the state. The woman in her 50s was sent to the hospital. Another travel-related case has also been confirmed — a teenage boy who lives in Clark County. This brings the total of human cases in Washington to four this year. The other two cases were confirmed last week, infecting a man in Yakima County who picked it up in the area and a Pierce County woman who had traveled out of state.
