West Nile now in Ohio




The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — Health officials in Franklin County say they will step up mosquito-control measures after confirming that a mosquito caught in August was infected with the West Nile virus.

        The mosquito was collected in a trap in Plain Township on Aug. 27 and is believed to be the first mosquito found in Ohio carrying the disease.

        Two infected birds have been found in Franklin County. Six other Ohio counties have confirmed finding the virus in birds.
