A horse in Brunswick County has died of Eastern equine encephalitis, the first confirmed case of the illness in North Carolina for 2013.
The horse, which died in early July, was in the Boiling Spring Lakes area, said David Stanley, director of the county department of health.
“You have to remember the virus can be anywhere,” Stanley said last week. “Just because we have one horse doesn’t mean other areas are not threatened by the virus. You need to have proper precautions everywhere you go.”
