BOSTON (CBS) – A day after finding mosquitoes infected with Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Easton, state officials say more have turned up in the town of Carver.

The mosquitoes were collected on July 10.

The risk level for mosquito-borne illness remains at “moderate” in Carver.

The recent detection of EEE-infected mosquitoes in Easton resulted in the raising of the risk level to “high” in the towns of Easton, Raynham and Taunton.

There have been no human cases of West Nile virus (WNV) or EEE so far this year.
