Two dead crows found in Alexandria are the first confirmed cases of West Nile virus in the city this year.

The infected crows were found June 24 and June 27.

The Virginia Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services in Richmond confirmed this week that the birds had West Nile virus. Approximately 20 birds from around the state have tested positive this year for the virus.

Residents are being asked to eliminate mosquito-breeding areas around the home and protect themselves from mosquito bites while outdoors.

NO human cases of West Nile virus have been confirmed in Virginia.
