The Southern Nevada Health District has detected its first West Nile Virus positive mosquitoes in Las Vegas. The health district says so far there are no cases of West Nile Virus in humans, but there are some precautions to take to prevent getting the disease.
The Aria Hotel and Casino recently sent letters to its guests, telling them they may have been exposed to the bacteria causing Legionnaires disease between June 21-July 4. Six former Aria guests reported being diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. So what is Legionnaires? How did it get into Aria's water system? And why is the hotel sending out warning letters now, when the CDC notified Southern Nevada health officials of the potential problem back in 2010? A Southern Nevada Health District expert joins us with some answers.
