Neighborhood taking action against West Nile
It's an all too common fact: West Nile could be anywhere. But, what if you've had it in your neighborhood before? Will the virus strike in the same place twice?Photo: Video by kgun9.com
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - This morning, Doolen/Fruitvale neighbors work up to an email from their neighborhood association, warning them to be extra cautious about mosquitoes, specifically, of course, the ones carrying West Nile.
"Our first summer here," said one neighbor, Sara, "I was actually quite shocked at how many mosquitoes there are."
Shocked also to know that the virus was once right up her street.
"It made me feel good about the efforts that I've made already and that I'll continue to make."
In this neighborhood in 2007, an elderly woman suffered from West Nile Virus, and the email sent by the neighborhood association this morning said it took her over five years to get better.
