FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The deaths of two more North Texans have been blamed on the West Nile virus.

Tarrant County officials Monday reported the deaths of a Fort Worth man and a North Richland Hills woman, both of whom were in their 80s and had underlying medical conditions.

That brings to four the number of dead in Tarrant County, to 16 the number of West Nile-related fatalities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and to 22 the number of dead in Texas.

Tarrant County officials are performing ground spraying to kill mosquitoes that carry the virus, while Dallas County is performing aerial spraying. Dallas County has reported 10 West Nile deaths.
