England: – Discovery of a new horror virus

A tick-borne virus that can cause acute meningitis has been found in many parts of England.

This appears in a new report from a selection of experts from the UKHSA, which is responsible for Britain’s healthcare, and DEFRA, which runs agriculture and food production.

He was Sky News who mentioned it for the first time.

The report is based on three cases of people with tick-borne encephalitis (TBEV) in England since 2019. The first case was detected in Yorkshire in 2020, while the other two cases were recorded in Hampshire/Dorset and Norfolk this year. In addition, the virus has been detected in ticks from these areas.

– follows closely

Dr Meera Chand, deputy director of the UKHSA, told Sky News the occurrence of the disease is rare.

– We have a good overview of the incidence of tick-borne encephalitis virus in the UK, and we know that it is very rare. Therefore the risks to the general population are very low.

She explained that the UKHSA was still monitoring the situation closely.

– But we are monitoring the situation closely and have taken measures to ensure we can detect and deal with any new cases effectively, she says.

life threatening

TBEV is a virus found in many countries around the world, especially in Europe. It can cause various symptoms, from none at all to flu-like symptoms, to meningitis or inflammation of the brain (encephalitis).

Encephalitis can be life-threatening and requires prompt treatment. Symptoms can be high fever, headache, stiff neck, confusion, or impaired consciousness.

Clear recommendation

The UKHSA advises anyone who has been bitten by a tick and experiences these symptoms to contact a doctor immediately. They have also made changes to testing in hospitals so that they can quickly detect any new cases of TBEV.

Ticks can also carry other infections, so it’s important to be aware of tick bites and seek medical attention if you become ill after a bite, Chand explains.

Ticks can also transmit other diseases, such as Lyme disease. This is a bacterial infection that can be treated with antibiotics if caught early.

To prevent tick-borne diseases, it is important to protect yourself from ticks when you are out in nature.
