Haemorrhagic virus already detected in some parts of Spain.
HUGE increase of ticks all over Spain according to the National Association of Environmental Health Companies
According to Milagros Fernandez de Lezeta, the president of the National Association of Environmental Health Companies (ANECPLA)in Spain, “the number of people who go to medical care centres with tick bites has skyrocketed”, so they are asking for extreme attention to prevent these small animals from biting us and transmitting serious diseases.
Ticks are usually found in areas with a lot of vegetation, and when a warm-blooded animal, or human, passes by, they land on their skin and at the same time exhale an anesthetic which means you don’t feel them, then they stay stuck to the skin and proceed to suck the blood that they need to survive.
