State tracking West Nile
By JOSIE HUANG, Portland Press Herald Writer
Public health officials are also keeping an eye out for another
mosquito-borne virus, the more lethal Eastern equine encephalitis.
Called Triple E, the virus has been showing up with greater ferocity
in New England. A 20-year-old New Hampshire woman died Friday, just
weeks after the virus claimed the lives of a 5-year-old girl and an
83-year-old from Massachusetts.
