The Nebraska Health and Human Services System says the 80-year-old man from Scotts Bluff County died earlier this month from what appears to be the virus, while he was traveling in Colorado.
His name and the exact date of his death haven't been released. But officials say he is the third Nebraskan to fall victim to the virus which also has infected nearly four dozen others across Nebraska. The virus is most dangerous for children and the elderly.
