We expect that around 13 counties will have cases transmitted in the week beginning July 22nd. We are one week beyond the projected peak of the season, but the season is hardly over - around 75% of cases are still to be transmitted. The virus is definitely present in the state's mosquitoes, and four blood donors have been detected with virus in their blood. The public should be kept aware that the risk of infection is very real and that risk is still high, in an above-average year.
