The state's mosquito-spraying campaign moved into eastern Baltimore County last night after two dead crows infected with the West Nile virus were found in Eastpoint and Dundalk. Four more infected crows were also found in Baltimore, and two in Montgomery County - the first in the Washington suburbs. In all, 21 infected crows have been found this year in Maryland. Also yesterday, Washington officials announced the discovery of two infected crows in that city's northwest section. The southward movement of the virus in September and October is consistent with a federal government prediction last week that the virus would spread south with fall bird migrations.
