"While the risk among the general population is very low, West Nile Virus can pose a greater risk to the elderly of those with compromised immune systems", said Atlantic County Health Officer Patricia Diamond.

The previous record was 33 cases in 2012, the statement says.

This compares with just one confirmed case past year, said the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit is a recent media release.

West Nile generally peaks in the late summer, with cases being reported in the fall.

Most people infected will not have any symptoms, while others may experience fever, headache and body aches.

Cases also were diagnosed in Barnstable County in 2007 and 2017, Scales said. "Mosquitoes might still be active and it remains important for people to use mosquito repellent and wear long sleeves to reduce exposed skin".

The West Nile Virus has made its way to Atlantic County.

According to health services, one pool of mosquitoes collected by the Nueces County Vector Control showed a match for the West Nile Virus. There is no vaccine or treatment for West Nile.
