The city has begun its next round of aerial spraying to prevent the West Nile virus in in parts of Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx.

It started Thursday night and will continue Friday and Monday between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., weather permitting.

The Department of Health says the virus has already been detected in Queens and on Staten Island, but no human cases have been reported.

Spraying will take place in several neighborhoods, including Pelham Bay Park North in the Bronx, Fresh Kills and Arlington on Staten Island and College Point and Elsmere in Queens.
