When it comes to the west nile virus, Oklahoma is quickly moving into uncharted territory.

Nine new cases have been confirmed bringing the total count to 101 confirmed cases and five deaths.

The highest previous year was in 2007 with 107 cases.

This year is expected to exceed that since mosquito season won’t end until the first “freeze.”

Doctors want everyone to remember most people who contract West Nile have few if any symptoms.

However, if you’re a senior or in a high-risk group, be sure to use bug spray when going outdoors.
