West Nile Infection Among California Horses Continues To Decline

Sacramento, CA — State health officials are saying last week was the third week in a row in which west nile infection in horses has declined.

The Department of Food and Agriculture reports 23 new equine infections from last week. Of those 12 horses died.

That brings the total death rate among horses infected to 161 for the year.

The department says the three counties reporting the highest rates of infection are Stanislaus, Riverside and Sacramento.
