Two 75225 Residents Died of West Nile This Week

According to a statement just released by Dallas County Health and Human Services, “the patients lived in zip code 75225 were diagnosed with West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease and died this week.”

No more details are available due to privacy laws, but about half of the 75225 ZIP code is University Park. The deaths were the fourth and fifth West Nile-related deaths in the county this year. Seventy Ninety-four West Nile cases have been reported so far in Dallas County this year, DCHHS officials reported late last week today.

So, people, help yourselves:

– use insect repellents that contain DEET

– Drain any standing water

– Dress in long, loose and light-colored clothing and

– take extra care to use repellent and protective clothing from Dusk to Dawn

    My Mother who lives in Preston Hollow is currently in the hospital with West Nile. We are lucky and she is recovering. I feel it is important to tell people that anyone over 55 is considered immune suppressed according to the hospital. Please spray a DEET bug spray on everyone in your family.
