International Travel Vaccination Centre - Tick Borne Encephalitis

International Travel Vaccination Centre - Tick Borne Encephalitis | International Travel Vaccination Centre | Scoop.it

* What Is Tick-borne Encephalitis?

 

TBE is viral disease transmitted by ticks that attacks the nervous system and it may cause illnesses ranging from mild to severe, with permanent consequences such as concentration problems, paralysis and depression. Approximately every 100th case results in the death of the affected person

 

* How is TBE transmitted?

 

TBE is transmitted through tick bites from infected ticks -The Ixodes ricinis tick (common Castor bean tick) is prevalent across Europe. Not every tick transmits the dangerous TBE virus, but the rate of infestation in some high risk area can be high. In certain areas ticks can be found at altitudes of up to 1800meter above sea level, infection of the TBE virus have been reported at altitudes of -1500 meters.

 

* Where do the Tick Hide?

 

Many believe the ticks fall from tree, they actually live in the soil and don’t climb much higher than20 to 70 cm on to the grasses and bushes in their search for blood host (people, animals). Therefore we generally brush tricks off vegetation when we pass through grasses or by bushes along the forest path, or when we walk on lawns or in the garden. Ticks have temperature-geared olfactory senses that detect “prey” .many affected people cannot remember ever being bitten because of te viral size of the ticks.
