Mississippi health officials report the lowest West Nile virus numbers since 2004.
The Mississippi Department of Health reports 2008 was the mildest West Nile season in four years, with 65 confirmed cases and three deaths.
In October 2008, the Centers for Disease Control informed states that a West Nile virus test used by a private lab reported inaccurate results.
The CDC and the state health department repeated many of these tests, and some individuals previously reported as Mississippi cases did not actually test positive for the virus.
