HELENA - A Lewis and Clark County resident has been sickened after being infected with the West Nile virus, the county health department said Thursday.

The infection was diagnosed in a man in his 40s, said Laura Hendley, registered sanitarian with the Lewis and Clark City-County Health Department. She declined to reveal the extent of the man's illness.

This is the fourth case of West Nile virus infection reported in the state. A Yellowstone County woman was diagnosed, along with two men from Roosevelt County.

People get the virus through the bite of an infected mosquito, which become infected by feeding on infected birds.
