Health officials say a person in Wyandot County has contracted West Nile Virus for the first time in two years.
Paul Pahl, 70, would ordinarily be tending to his Carey farm this time of year. Unfortunately Pahl is instead lying in a hospital bed with West Nile Virus, struggling to lift a fork.
"It was very surprising to all of us. Dad is a person who's outdoors all the time. He's very active and those type of things, but you kind of think of a small little mosquito, the size of the tip of your finger nail, taking a very healthy, energetic man down like that. It was very much a surprise," said Bryan Pahl, Paul's son.
Paul is out of the intensive care unit and improving, but will have to undergo rehabilitation to deal with tremors and regain motor skills.
West Nile is often passed to humans by a mosquito which has fed on an infected bird. Symptoms include fever, nausea, and muscle aches.
The Wyandot County Health Department says Pahl is the first person in the county to contract West Nile this year. The county did not see any cases of the virus in 2012.
