Tick-borne encephalitis is caused by a special type of arbo virus. In nature, the virus is carried by ixodid ticks - taiga and European. The encephalitis virus is transmitted by tick bites, has an unfavorable course and even death. In the natural environment, the virus is found in the blood of forest animals: large ungulates, rodents, predators and even birds. Likewise, it can be present in the blood of domestic mammalian animals (cows, sheep, goats).

Good afternoon!

Tick-borne encephalitis is transmitted through the bite of an infected tick . The disease is not transmitted from person to person.

The virus is just as dangerous for dogs, horses, rodents, birds and livestock as it is for humans.

In addition, this virus can also be caught by consuming raw milk.

About 20 cases are registered in Russia every year when the virus enters the body along with fresh milk or dairy products. Milk can be contaminated if the cows or goats that gave it, the ticks have previously been infected with encephalitis. In order not to get infected with the virus through fresh milk, it is enough to pre-boil it .

For more information, see the article about tick-borne encephalitis in 2020.
