Health officials: 57-year-old Wall woman dies from West Nile virus; 2nd death this year


TRENTON, New Jersey — State health officials say another New Jersey resident has died from West Nile virus.

The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1NrVljf) reports the 57-year-old Wall Township woman died last week. But her name has not been released.

Health officials tell the newspaper that the woman was admitted to the hospital late last month and had been moved to a rehabilitation center where she died Wednesday.

Her death came nearly two weeks after a 65-year-old Passaic County man died from the virus, the state's first death from the mosquito-borne illness since 2013

There have been 10 human cases of West Nile virus in the state this year, and mosquito pools in all 21 counties have tested positive for the disease.
