01 June 2023 - Published by Per-Erik Lindgren

Many people enjoy nature. They go on walks or picnics, they go hiking, camping, or do outdoor sports. But these activities also put you at risk of comming into contact with ticks, sometimes even in your own garden. This video tells you about Tick Borne Encephalitis – often called TBE. TBE is a viral infection that is pread via tick bites. The number of people getting TBE has gone up in some countries in Europe, and the areas where you are at risk are now larger. We don’t know all the reasons why, but climate plays an important role. This animation was made possible by the European Regional Development Fund and the North Sea Region, the NorthTick consortium and the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Tick-borne Disease.
