Mosquito Bites Will Be DEADLY This Summer


According to a report by the Centers for disease
control and prevention, diseases spread by mosquito, flea and tick bites are on the rise
in the united states. Find out how this could affect you, here on
IO. Welcome back to IO, I’m Charlotte Dobre. Practically the only thing that sucks about
summer is bug bites. Especially super itchy, red, gigantic mosquito
bites that are so distracting people don’t even notice how nice your tan is. But now apparently, mosquito bites are not
only itchy and unsightly, you actually have to be worried about mosquitoes spreading diseases. The report stated that illnesses from bug
bites, otherwise known as vector borne diseases, tripled over the course of 13 years. In 2004, there were 27,300 cases in the US,
and in 2016, there were 640 thousand. Experts believe that the rise in these vector
born diseases is due to rising temperatures. Bugs love warm weather. Another factor is travelling, and people introducing
diseases into the united states and not going to the doctor. What diseases should you be worried about? Specifically, the Zika Virus and the chikngunya
virus, which are spread by mosquitoes, and also babesiosis, and lyme disease which are
spread by ticks. Lyme disease can be extremely nasty. A tick will bite you and a red rash will appear
3 to 30 days after being bitten. It can cause serious health problems later
in life. The bacteria from the disease can attack the
central nervous system. Things like the heart and joints can be affected. To make matters worse, Lyme disease extremely
difficult to diagnose. But if you notice a rash appear, make sure
you take a picture and seek medical attention ASAP. The earlier you treat it, the better. So what can you do to prevent the spread of
diseases? Well, of course use bug spray when you’re
outside. Use Environmental Protection Agency registered
insect repellent. Wear long shirts and long pants. Do what you can to control ticks and fleas
on your pets. Your Mom – Where’s Charlotte
