West Nile Comes to Boston


Ugh, a Boston woman won the unhappy distinction of becoming the first Boston resident in years to be infected with West Nile. The woman, a fifty-something Beacon Hill resident, has been released from the hospital, luckily, and the Boston Public Health Commission says she’d been traveling and may have been infected elsewhere. But coupling this with all the infected mosquitos that have been found in the area recently, we’d recommend you take precautions (BPHC has several recommendations) out there this weekend.
