West Nile virus spraying in The Bronx
The sight of ground crews spraying in The Bronx to combat the West Nile virus is something many residents have grown accustomed to.
The latest Bronx victim is a 72-year-old woman. She is the 18th case of the West Nile virus in the city this year, and is the fifth in The Bronx.
Weather permitting, 10 Bronx neighborhoods will be sprayed beginning Sunday night, which is the most neighborhoods sprayed at once since the city began combating the virus in August.
City officials say during spraying, stay indoors, especially if you have asthma. They also say to wash off anything that may have been exposed to pesticides, like outdoor toys and furniture. Officials say pets should be kept inside as well.
Symptoms of the West Nile virus include headache, high fever, stiff neck, confusion and muscle weakness. The city's Department of Health says the elderly are the most susceptible to the virus.
