Hills. Out With Mosquito Borne Illness Alert


Hillsborough County health officials have upgraded their mosquito-borne illness advisory to an alert.

That after a young boy donating blood tested positive for West Nile Virus.

At least 8 people statewide have been hospitalized for West Nile since June.

Health officials say the mosquito problem in the bay area has been made worse this year because of record summer rains and flooding.
