Greece reports first West Nile virus case this year

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (KEELPNO) on Wednesday confirmed the first case of West Nile virus in Greece this year.

According to KEELPNO, laboratory tests confirmed that an 85-year-old Greek man has been infected with the virus, which can be fatal.

The man is a resident of Attica and has not traveled to other parts of the country, KEELPNO said.

The virus, which claimed 35 lives in Greece last summer, is commonly transmitted by infected mosquitoes.
