VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Virginia Beach officials says mosquitoes in some parts of the city have tested positive for West Nile virus.



Media outlets report the testing occurred over the past three weeks.



West Nile is spread by mosquitoes and can lead to severe headaches and dizziness.



Officials say there will be increased spraying for mosquitoes in the affected areas, which include those near Red Wing Park, the Thalia and Kings Grant neighborhoods and Old Dam Neck Road in Ocean Lakes. Other crews are treating standing water in the same areas.
