A person died from a tick bite in New York. Foreign presses report that the reason was the dangerous Powassan virus.

The symptoms of the virus are shivering, headaches, nausea, altered level of consciousness and memory loss. Moreover, the virus can infect the brain, and this becomes a reason for death. There is no drug that can fight against the virus.

Experts are afraid the virus will grow due to climate change, which has an impact on the population of ticks. Due to this, experts call on citizens to be alert in open areas and always check their pets.
