New animations

The partners in NorthTick, have in collaboration with Amsterdam Medical Center, worked on a public health campaign on tick-borne diseases. Two animations videos that were originally intended for the dutch public, have been translated into English and adjusted to make the content more relevant for people in the North Sea Region. The first animation video is about tick bites, the risk of tick-borne diseases and long-term health complaints. The second animation video is about the usefulness of cellular tests (its use in diagnostics is controversial).
