AUGUSTA -- Two more horses in Maine have been confirmed with eastern equine encephalitis, bringing the tally to five. There are another two suspected cases in horses, as well.
So far, no humans have been infected with the potentially fatal brain infection in Maine, but health officials are warning residents to be vigilant in avoiding mosquito bites.
The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention is especially concerned about the geographic scope of the outbreak.
Last month, three horses were identified with EEE, two in Waldo County and one in Penobscot County.
The two horses confirmed this week were in Cumberland and Waldo counties. Two more cases involving horses in the Waldo County town of Unity and the York County town of Berwick are suspicious
