Third human case of West Nile reported in Suffolk County
Another person has tested positive for West Nile virus in Suffolk County.
Health officials say a resident in the Town of Smithtown developed symptoms linked to the mosquito-borne virus last month.
That person is now recovering at a rehabilitation facility.
The patient is the third human case of West Nile in the county this season.
In September, officials reported two cases in the Town of Islip.
