A Manitoba woman has been infected with West Nile virus.
Hers is the first human case of WNV in the province this year, according to Manitoba health officials.
The woman, in her 50s, lives in the southern health region. She did not experience neurological symptoms and has not been hospitalized, the province said in a press release.
She is believed to have been exposed during the week of July 26. That's the week after Manitoba health officials announced the first mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus had been found.
The investigation is ongoing into the woman's case, official said, adding the current risk for human exposure in the province is low.
Information on any additional human cases, including age, gender, health region of residence and likeliest area of exposure, will be posted on the government website as it becomes available.
