A spokesperson for the New Jersey Department of Health confirmed the death to Fox News on Friday, noting his passing marked the state's first West Nile-related death this year. Unfortunately, no vaccine for the West Nile fever is now available, but here are a few ways to prevent an infection. "It's easy to do: wear mosquito repellent and dump out standing water". Most people infected with the virus will have no symptoms.

West Nile virus is usually transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Public health officials have announced 10 new human cases of West Nile virus, bringing to 24 the number of human cases acquired in MA this year.

"We've seen four times more West Nile virus human cases this year in the Commonwealth than last year", said Public Health Commissioner Monica Bharel, MD, MPH.

To prevent the spread of West Nile, the Philly Health Department's Vector Control Services program has been working to control mosquito populations. During 2002, the state documented its first human infections and 52 cases were reported that year.
