This is brain inflammation diseases are effected in your health and personality and this diseases is created from Deer Tick Virus and new report details is presenting a 62-year-old man in New York state are provides this diseases and died in last year.
“Deer tick virus encephalitis [inflammation of the brain] is rare, but diagnostic testing is not routinely performed, so there could be cases out there we’re actually missing,” said Tavakoli, who is a research scientist with the Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health in Albany. “Certainly, during early spring to fall in areas where infected ticks have been reported, testing should be done.”
“It is quite a rare virus,” said Dr. Geoffrey Weinberg, a professor of pediatrics in the division of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Rochester Medical Center. “I would advise people not to be overly concerned. Ticks are less commonly infected with this than with Lyme disease and, even in Lyme, Conn., a minority of ticks are infected with Lyme disease. Also, the odds are 300-to-one that someone infected with the virus will develop encephalitis. The vast majority have no symptoms at all.”
“Whether or not this will become a real problem, I don’t think anybody knows. Obviously, there is no treatment for the virus so, really, prevention is the only thing you can do,” said Dr. Peter Welch and Mt. Kisco, N.Y. is says “We should always be cautious to do our best to not be bitten by ticks. Check for ticks when you come out of the woods or anywhere there are ticks. Wear insect repellant which contains DEET.”
“Since no one has been testing, we really don’t know the incidence of deer tick virus, but it can’t be very high, because we don’t have many cases of encephalitis,” he said. “What happens in the future will depend on how many ticks get infected, how easy it is to transmit to people and what percent of people infected get severe disease. It could be that people with normal immune systems are relatively resistant.” Via
