The Powassan virus is a rare disease that can be spread to people via a tick bite. Unlike Lyme disease, which is a bacterial infection, the Powassan virus cannot be treated with antibiotics. Half of all survivors may have long-term health issues.

The recent death of an elderly North Jersey man who had contracted Powassan virus after a tick bite has stirred public concern over the rare, incurable. Symptoms of the potentially deadly infection include fever, cough, fatigue, nausea, and vomiting, as well as a decline in white blood cells. SFTS isn’t exactly new, as the first cases of the tick-borne disease were reported in rural parts of the Hubei and Henan provinces back in 2009, and Chinese virologists isolated its pathogen in 2011. Common tick-borne diseases include Lyme disease, Powassan virus disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and more.

Many people who become infected with Powassan virus do not develop any symptoms. The incubation period (time from tick bite to onset of illness) ranges from about one week to one month.

POW virus can infect the central nervous system and cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and. While nowhere near as prevalent, another tick-borne disease called Powassan virus carries a serious, sometimes fatal health risk. According to the CDC, approximately 75 cases of Powassan virus have.

  • On Nov 3, 2016, I was told I will not be getting a kidney transplant because I have blood circulation problems. I live in the US.I had Lyme disease for years,which I have done everything within medical field with no results. i developed venous statis in which the capillaries pop and my skin darkens on both my legs below my knees and above my ankles.I have a inherited kidney disease as FSGS and minimal change, two kidney disorders. I was diagnosed in 1985. At that time, there was no treatment for me because my blood was normal but I had proteinuria alot of it.My kidney disease didn’t really get bad until 2006, then I was referred to a kidney doctor. He prescribed predisone. It didn’t work on me. It was supposed to slow down the disease. But my problems befan to appear in 2012, when I started to gain weight, I thought at the time I was eating too much, but I later discovered it was excess water. Because later that year, my legs started to leak water. I actually had to squeeze the water out of my socks and trousers. Then I developed claudication which causes pain on my calf muscles in the back of my legs. I would walk a few steps and they would seize up. I would rest a few moments and the pain would go away. Then walk a few more steps and again experience pain.Then in February 2014, my kidneys finally failed and I was put on haemodialysis. Then I lost circulation in my toes, then gangrene then amputations in May 2014 on my left foot then my left leg below the knee in June 2014Then my big toe on my right leg, on October 2014, and theno the rest of my toes in Nov 2014.By July 2014, I lost 40 liters of of water or 88 pounds of water through haemodialysis.I thought since I had 20 other medical problems besides my 2 kidney disorders that I wouldn’t qualify for a kidney transplant. Plus I have 47 chromosomes.But at least, I now know, I won’t be getting a kidney.Unless someone invents a cure for poor blood circulation.Not every one who has a chronic kidney disorder will have the kind of problems I have had.recently I was introduced to a herbalist from China by a doctor friend from India, I have to fly from India where I went for the treatment to meet with the herbalist dr sale bashiru in China.just in about 3 months later I was cured of this diseases with herbs and oil.here is my email address if you need any further information [email protected] gmail.com

  • I pulled a tick off the back of my head not knowing what it was when I was about to go to sleep… I was 10 that time. Yikes �� ��
