(Franklin County, IN)--The West Nile Virus has shown up in the Whitewater Valley.  A mosquito sample taken earlier this month in Franklin County has tested positive for West Nile.  So far this summer, there have been only two human cases of West Nile in Indiana and neither of them was in our area.  Most experts say that the odds of getting bitten by an infected mosquito are extremely long.  And, even if you do, a serious medical reaction would be rare.
