The Arkansas Health Department says another human case of the West Nile virus has been confirmed in the state. The latest case is in Pulaski County and brings the total number of cases in the state to 24. Seven of the human cases are in Jefferson County, four in Pulaski County, two each in Arkansas, Miller and Pope counties, and one each in Benton, Cleburne, Columbia, Drew Johnson, Sevier and Union counties. The state is past the peak season for transmission of the mosquito-borne virus. In most cases, the virus passes with mild or no symptoms but it can bring on fatal brain swelling in some cases. No deaths have been linked to the disease in Arkansas this year.
