State records say 104 Iowans were diagnosed with West Nile virus a year ago and nine died.

Iowa recently had its first case of West Nile virus this summer, the state's Department of Public Health announced July 12, according to the Des Moines Register.

The Iowa Department of Public Health says the man is an older adult. Sporadic cases have occurred throughout the state for years.

West Nile virus is transmitted through bites from an infected mosquito.

No human infections have been reported, but officials say the risk will remain through the active mosquito season.

It is the first reported case of the year in Alabama. He stresses that people only get infected from mosquitoes and that horses do not pose an additional risk for human infection.

The agency has recorded 27 cases of the virus in people so far. Fewer than one percent will develop a serious illnesses such as encephalitis or meningitis.

Sunenshine said most people who are infected will not have serious symptoms, but it could be life threatening to one in 150 victims.

Insect repellent containing DEET is recommended as well. During the peak mosquito hours of dusk to dawn, it is recommended that residents wear long sleeves, long trousers, shoes and socks while outside.

· Install or fix screens on windows and doors. The most vulnerable people are those who are at least 50 or have weakened immune systems.

· Empty standing water from items outside homes, such as flowerpots, buckets and children's pools. But more severe cases can end in paralysis or death.
