Residents told to stay calm if bitten by tick
    2018-07-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A DOCTOR at a public hospital told residents not to panic if bitten by a tick as most ticks found in the city parks do not carry deadly viruses.

The doctor at Peking University Shenzhen Hospital surnamed Peng recently received a toddler suspected of being bitten by a tick when playing in a park in Luohu District.

The toddler’s father, surnamed Liu, panicked after finding a tick on his 3-year-old daughter’s head and failing to remove it after several attempts July 13. The 3-year-old girl often hangs out in a park near their home with her grandmother, said the father.

Liu said he had read on the Internet that ticks carry neurogenic viruses, and people infected with the viruses have a mortality rate of 15 to 30 percent.

He worried that it might affect his child’s health and immediately took her to the hospital.

Peng said there are thousands of ticks all over the world that carry different pathogens according to different ecological environments. These pathogens generally have an incubation period of about seven days.

He added if patients have symptoms such as fever and ecchymosis, they should seek medical treatment immediately. Peng also advises residents to wear long-sleeved tops and trousers when they go out to the suburbs and forests. (Zhang Yu, Fu Xinyue)
