Australia : Ross River cases spike in Cockburn

Via WA Today :

" A Perth council has issued a warning about mosquito-borne Ross River virus after it emerged that in the area more people have contracted the virus in the past two months than in all of 2011.

In a statement today, the City of Cockburn said it had 62 reported cases of Ross River virus in the area since January 1, almost triple the 21 cases reported in 2011.

There has been a similar rise across the state in the past two months, with 511 cases state-wide since the start of the year. This is more than the total number of cases in all of 2010, when there was just 245."
