Health Officials Urge Everyone to Take Precautions to Reduce the Risk of Illness

San Joaquin County Health Officer, Dr. Karen Furst, confirmed that a 65 year old male living in Stockton is the first human with West Nile Virus (WNV) infection in San Joaquin County this year. The man has been reported as an asymptomatic blood donor. Although for reporting purposes this does not meet the case definition for the California Department of Public Health to count as a case, it does indicate that there is currently active transmission of WNV to people in San Joaquin County.

Last year, San Joaquin County’s first detection of WNV infection in a human was also diagnosed about the same time in July.
