Indiana has recorded its first West Nile virus death this year. It happened in the Terre Haute area, in Vigo County. 20 human cases have been reported in Vanderburgh and other counties in 2013. A state health department spokeswoman says that generally, the risk of the illness has subsided by this time of year, but has not ceased to exist. There is no vaccine and no cure for West Nile.
