 (Rome-AP) --  Officials with the Northwest Georgia Health District in Rome said today that the man had a mild case of the illness and is doing well.

There have been at least 154 human cases of West Nile virus this year in the United States. Colorado has had the most reported cases-- 72. Four people have died this year in the United States from the mosquito-borne disease.

 In Georgia, 45 birds and three horses have been infected with the virus, mainly in the metro Atlanta and southeastern counties near Savannah.

The Department of Public Health says that Effingham County leads the state with 17 birds infected with the virus.

Last year, the state had 44 cases of the virus and seven deaths.
