Officials are expecting the West Nile Virus to decline in the coming weeks.


Tim Hilderman is the medical officer of health with the Interlake RHA.


He explains the risk of becoming infected with the disease is decreasing.


Hilderman adds although the mosquito population was low this summer,  the number of reported cases of West Nile were up from last year.


He says this was possible because the bugs were less noticable, so people didn't protect as much as they should have.


Therefore giving the mosquitos a better chance at infecting people with the disease.
