Health officials say two people in the Windsor area have died as a result of the West Nile virus.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit confirms that two deaths within the last week have been attributed to the virus.

Acting Medical Officer of Health Doctor Wajid Ahmed says the two people who died were seniors.

The health unit says the virus will continue to be a risk in the area until temperatures dip below freezing.
