LYME DISEASE & POWASSAN VIRUS?

Many thinks ticks only transmit Lyme disease. That is a MYTH.

For instance , in the NE, Babesiosis is roughly 50% transmitted with Borrelia burgdorferi infections. The Powassan virus is another concern as it can be deadly if one is immune-compromised. There is no real treatment and hospitalization is essential early to try to survive this viral infection if one is symptomatic soon after infection.

Be vigilant when you go outdoors. Take note of any sudden Flu-like symptoms, headaches, sweats ….. fewer than 40% see ticks that cause infections.
