PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Three new cases of West Nile virus reported in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties have brought the statewide total to 10 so far this year, state Department of Health officials said.
Two cases involve Allegheny County men, ages 78 and 86. Both were still hospitalized Saturday but were expected to recover, officials said.
The other case is a 69-year-old Westmoreland County man who has already recovered, the first human infection in that county this year. A mosquito carrying the disease was found earlier this week in Hempfield Township near Greensburg, the county seat, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
There have been no deaths from the disease this year in Pennsylvania. Two people died last year.
Allegheny County has the most cases in the state, with four.
