ATLANTA — Doctors are raising the alarm about a new and potentially deadly tick-borne illness spreading across the country.
It’s called the Powassan virus. It’s carried by the same tick that carries Lyme disease. If you’re going to spend any time outside this summer, doctors say you need to learn what to look for.
Tick-borne illnesses are on the rise across the country. It’s not just a disease of certain regions anymore like it used to be a decade ago.
