DERRY, N.H. (AP) - Officials in Derry, New Hampshire, plan another round of spraying against mosquitoes after some tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis.

A spraying took place Tuesday night around parks and schools. On Wednesday, the mosquito pool tested positive for EEE.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/10mzuWa) town leaders say they plan to spray again on Monday.

Last month, a Conway woman died from the disease. Officials in Hopkinton say another adult was diagnosed with the virus but has been released from the hospital.

Symptoms include a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck and sore throat. The virus can occasionally cause seizures and coma.
