2012 IS LIKELY TO BE THE DEADLIEST YEAR FOR WEST NILE DISEASE IN U-S HISTORY.

THE LATEST REPORT FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION SHOWS MORE THAN 26-HUNDRED TOTAL CASES OF WEST NILE THIS YEAR.

118 DEATHS HAVE BEEN REPORTED. THE NUMBERS REFLECT A 35-PERCENT INCREASE OVER LAST WEEK'S WEST NILE REPORT.

EXPERTS PREDICT CASES WILL CONTINUE TO RISE THROUGH OCTOBER -- BUT SAY IT APPEARS THE ILLNESS HAS PEAKED.

SOME AREAS HAD REPORTED A SHORTAGE OF WEST NILE TEST KITS, BUT THE C-D-C EXPERTS SAY THAT ISSUE HAS NOW BEEN RESOLVED.
