Second Cambridge man has West Nile virus

A Cambridge man in his 70s is hospitalized with West Nile virus, the second city resident this month to be reported with the mosquito-borne disease, Massachusetts health ­officials said Thursday.

The announcement follows a warning earlier this week from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about a record number of West Nile infections nationwide this year: more than 1,100. Already, there have been 41 deaths.
