As the whole world is witnessing the havoc created by a coronavirus, the second pandemic moment has taken place. Yes! You heard it right. The second most deadly virus after the coronavirus is ”TICK BONE VIRUS”. Let’s know more about the “tick-borne virus” together.
What is the Tick-borne virus?
Tick-borne disease is generally caused by tick bites, which can lead to death. The same happened in china lately, which killed seven people, and more than 60 people got infected due to it. The virus is identified as severe fever with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome Bunyaviru (SFTSV). The appearance of the virus has been witnessed by the people of china back in the year 2009.
moreover, there are 16 tick-borne diseases of humans found through studies, but the scientist has discovered only four to date. The severe fever with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome Bunyaviru (SFTSV) belonged to the bunyavirus family and was witnessed ten years back from now.
Symptoms of Tick-Borne Virus
The tick-borne virus’s signs are body aches, fatigue, fever, headache, loss of appetite, joint pain, rashes, low platelet, decrease in white blood cell count, vomiting, diarrhea, and other neurological abnormalities like seizures are the most common symptoms of the tick-borne virus.
Is the tick-borne virus transmitted through humans?
As I already mentioned above, the tick-borne virus has resulted in the death of 10 people in China, and 60 people were found infected. It can be transmitted to humans through mucus and blood of an infected person. in contradiction, no such results prove the transmission of the virus in animals. It is likely believed that tick-borne viruses have high chances of spreading in warmer areas and areas with grasses, bushes and woods, and leaf litter. The virus has been reported in southeast Asian countries such as China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.
Vaccines for the (SFTSV)?
There is no such vaccine developed for tick-borne virus by any of the laboratory or officials. But the concern is being made for its composition. Antiviral drug Ribavirin is helping in the treatment of (SFTSV).
