    New Hampshire's Department of Health and Human Services has announced the second confirmed death caused by Eastern Equine Encephalitis this season.

    An adult from Manchester was exposed to the virus at the end of August and passed away in mid-September. The department says the patient was not confirmed to have EEE until after the individual passed away.

    This is the third case and second death caused by EEE in New Hampshire this season.

    Other EEE positive tests this year include two animals and 18 mosquito batches. The only positive test for West Nile Virus this season was one mosquito batch.
