Two dead ravens found in southeast B.C. have tested positive for West Nile virus, marking the first evidence of the virus in the province this year.
Another six municipalities in Attica were added to the areas that have reported cases of the West Nile virus this summer while cases have been documented in at least 39 municipalities, including central suburbs like Kallithea, Egaleo and Piraeus. Some mosquitoes in Canada can spread West Nile virus to humans through mosquito bites.

A total of 401 human WNV infections have been reported in Europe with 22 deaths according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
It's working with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control and Canadian Blood Services to monitor virus activity, including screening the blood supply and reporting human and animal cases.
"The few cases of West Nile virus diagnosed in the United Kingdom have been due to insect bites overseas and the risk of contracting the infection in this country is low".
