Ticks are the cause of several pathogens. They can spread Borrelia or TBE viruses. Borrelia attack the joints, such as knees, hips or shoulders. TBE viruses can cause Meningitis.
The number of infected patients nearly doubled to the year before to 283 TBE cases.
There has not been such an increase in cases for more than ten years.
