A Park County, Wyoming man has died as a result of contracting West Nile Virus this summer.  Wyoming Department of Health Spokesperson Kim Deti says the number of cases in the state has spiked recently with the count of people infected now numbering 13.  Deti says that’s more than during the last couple of years.  Deti reminds that the West Nile Virus season is not over yet, and people need to continue to take measures to avoid the mosquitos and their bites.  Deti says of those 13 cases, ten are in Fremont County, one each from Platte and Natrona Counties and the fatal case in Park County.  Most people infected with WNV never develop symptoms.  Among those who become ill, symptoms include fever, headache, body aches, skin rash and swollen lymph nodes.  However, a small percentage of infected people develop more serious symptoms.
