Virus Found in Horses in Georgia.

The Georgia Division of Public Health has confirmed six positive cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in horses found in Berrien, Brooks, Cook, Lanier, and Lowndes counties.
Nine cases have been reported in Georgia so far this summer.
Those in the effected areas should take extra precautions against mosquito-borne illnesses well into the summer months.
EEE is the inflammation or swelling of the brain caused by the eastern equine encephalitis virus.
