DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Another human case of the West Nile virus has been confirmed in Dallas. It is the seventh human case for the 2013 season.

According to Dallas County Health and Human Services, the resident lives in the 75127 zip code and is diagnosed with the West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease, the more serious form of the disease.

Although the temperatures have gotten cooler, DCHHS warns that mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus are still active in North Texas.

The best way to defend yourself from the West Nile Virus is to practice the four D’s:

  • Defend yourself by using insect repellents; follow label instructions
  • Dress in long sleeves and pants, loose and light colored clothing when you go outside
  • Dusk and dawn, stay indoors to avoid mosquitoes when they are most active
  • Drain standing water and install or repair window screens
