Two Orange County residents have been diagnosed with West Nile virus, the first cases of the disease in Southern California this year, health officials said today.

An 80-year-old Anaheim man who fell ill in early July and a 49-year-old central Orange County woman who became sick in late June remain hospitalized, said Orange County Health Care Agency spokesman Howard Sutter. The woman's infection may have been acquired during travel outside the county, he said.
