CDC: 4 cases of West Nile virus in Minnesota

The cases, mostly in the western suburbs of Athens, mark a reappearance of the virus after an outbreak a year ago when Greek authorities registered 48 cases, resulting in five deaths.

Cases of the disease have been confirmed in 36 states including California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina and Texas, according to the CDC.
