The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that two southern IN residents have fallen ill over the past two years after contracting a newly discovered tick-borne virus, state health officials announced Tuesday. "If your doctor is concerned about the presence of Bourbon virus, they can contact DHSS". "My sister had been calling her and couldn't get a hold of her".

Wilson's daughter, Amie May, said her mother had acquired secondary infections, including pneumonia.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control said signs and symptoms of infection can include fever, headache, vomiting, weakness, confusion, seizures and memory loss.

Tamela Wilson, 58, died weeks after contracting the rare tick-born Bourbon virus.

Wilson's family said she donated her body to science, hoping it would help doctors make progress fighting the Bourbon Virus. There is no treatment for Heartland, as antibiotics do not treat viruses.

Lawrence said the virus doesn't constitute a public health threat.

On his part, the club's Chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, thanked the former Barcelona and Juventus defender for choosing to join PSG .

Hawkinson said the seriousness of Bourbon virus needs greater study and it's likely that most cases are not as severe as that of his patient, who also died.

However, two more common tick-borne bacterial diseases that can cause serious illness have spiked in 2017 after a mild winter. Ehrlichiosis is up slightly, with 149 reported cases. In 2016, the state saw more than 200 cases of tick-borne illness. At least two people have died, according to federal health officials.

The best defense is prevention of tick bites.

Tim Maxvill of Any Lab Test Now in Chesterfield said that so far, he has seen a few patients come into his clinic concerned about whether they've been bitten. While there was virtually no chance of catching the virus in the USA, thousands of Americans died from common influenza that winter.

A day later, things took a turn for the worse.

"It's a viral disease, and because it's a virus, it's kind of sprawled out within the tick, which means as soon as that tick starts to feed, it has the potential to give you whatever it may be carrying", said Bryon Backenson, a research scientist for State Department of Health. "If you are out and about and you go fishing and your family goes camping or floating and you've been bit by a tick, to relieve the stress of having a problem, just get a blood test done".
