Health department sprays mosquitoes to prevent spread of West Nile
Health

The Knox County Health Department plans to spray for mosquitoes to stop the spread of West Nile Virus. Crews will spray between 9 o'clock and midnight in the Chapman Highway area of South Knoxville.

A lab report confirmed mosquitoes in that area tested positive for West Nile. It's important to note there have been no human cases of West Nile Virus in Tennessee this year.

Ronnie Nease, the director of environmental health for the Knox County Health Department, joined us in the 10News studio with more. You can watch that entire conversation in the video above.
