State health officials say the West Nile Virus has most likely spread to all of Ohio's counties-now after the discovery of two dead blue jays, two new cases have been confirmed in Muskingum county. One was found in Falls township, while the other was found in neighboring township of Springfield. Jennifer Hoffman the Public Relations Director at the Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department says people shouldn't fear the West Nile Virus, but they should take precautions such as, wearing long sleeve shirts, pants, and socks while outside in the evening. Also, she suggested to carry insect repellant to keep the mosquitoes away.
