Four cases of tick-borne encephalitis documented in Tuva

Tuvan physicians are warning the public about the danger of tick-borne encephalitis. Since the beginning of this year, four cases of infection by this deadly virus have been documented. As the chief physician of anti-epidemic station, Eduard Glushkov, announced, last year the specialists of this department, for purposes of annual studies, caught, with difficulty, about 8 thousand ticks in one month in Kyzyl; this year they have alreadycaught 15 thousand ticks in one week. And the numbers will keep growing, warn the health workers.

To make the capital safe for the residents, the mayor of Kyzyl will perform an anti-tick work-up of the areas of greatest concentration of these insects – the old cemetery and the Youth Square.

Remember that last year, two men died of tick-borne encephalitis in Tuva. Opne of them was a resident of Ulug-Khem district, the other one of the taiga district of Todzha. Both were inveterate hunters.
