JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Rankin County Emergency Operations Director Bob Wedgeworth says mosquito-spraying trucks will are doing extra spraying in areas of Rankin County where people have been diagnosed with West Nile virus.
The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/NQ4lmD ) reports that Wedgeworth met Thursday with state health officials for an update about the locations.
Rankin County has the most cases in the state. Health Department spokeswoman Liz Sharlot says 30 of Mississippi's 129 cases are in the county.
Wedgeworth said the Health Department is providing county officials with maps that show, within a mile, where each case likely was contracted. Those locations are not available to the public because of health privacy laws. He says areas with an active case get a double spraying.
