A person in Elkhart County, Indiana, is dead after contracting the deadly mosquito-borne virus Eastern Equine Encephalitis, or EEE, according to WNDU.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, confirmed it to Indiana health officials.
Officials have not immediately released a name or where in the county it happened.
This is the first human case in Indiana since 1998 and only the 4th reported since 1964.
The CDC says 5 to 10 human cases of EEE are reported nationwide every year.
EEE so far has been found in more than a dozen horses in Northern Indiana this year.
There’s also been multiple cases in Southwest Michigan, with humans and animals getting infected with EEE.
