The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Monday reported five new human cases of West Nile Virus.

That brings the state's total to 41 this year.

The new cases are from Weld, Douglas, Boulder and Larimer
counties.

Cindy Parmenter is communications director for the state health
department and says she expects blood test results to continue
arriving through mid or late September.

Two of the most serious cases so far this year have been found
in Larimer County -- where a 62-year-old woman developed
encephalitis and a 61-year-old woman was paralyzed in her lower
legs.
