TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) - Tarrant County Public Health announced Monday two more deaths associated with the West Nile virus.

Tarrant County now has four confirmed deaths related to West Nile along with 205 reported cases.

County health officials say the two latest deaths involve a Fort Worth man and a North Richland Hills woman, both in their 80s, with underlying medical conditions.

Tarrant County has not implemented aerial spraying to control the spread of West Nile. The cities of Fort Worth and Arlington both launched targeted ground spraying this past weekend.

The city of Fort Worth is also holding an informational meeting to address an increase in West Nile Virus-positive mosquitoes and human cases in the 76137 and 76244 zip codes. The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Summerglen Library, 4205 Basswood Blvd.
