West Nile Found in New Jersey Mosquitoes


Twenty New Jersey residents have tested positive for a mosquito-borne virus that has spread through the Caribbean, the state Health Department said. The residents were visiting the Caribbean when they came down with chikungunya, which, while rarely fatal, causes a high fever and severe pain in the joints. Meanwhile, West Nile virus has been found in mosquito pools in 11 N.J. counties but no one has tested positive.
