Connecticut woman in her 90s dies after testing positive for rare tick-borne Powassan virus one month after being bitten
Woman was in her 90s and in New London county which borders Rhode Island

Health chiefs said she was admitted to hospital with a fever, headache, chest pain and 'altered mental state' two weeks after being bitten by a tick

She died 14 days later after becoming 'unresponsive', they said
It is the second death from the virus this year, following one in Maine in April

Powassan virus is rare but kills one in 10 people who catch the virus, while half are left with life-long disabilities such as memory problems

There are no vaccines or treatments available for people who get infected



A Connecticut woman has died from the rare tick-borne Powassan virus just a month after being bitten by the parasite.

The individual — who has not been named — was in her 90s and lived in New London county, which borders Rhode Island.

Health officials said she was admitted to hospital with a fever, headache, chest pain and 'altered mental state' two weeks after being bitten by a tick in early May. The patient died 14 days later after becoming 'unresponsive'.


It is the second death from the tick-borne disease in America this year, after a man from Maine died from the virus in April.

Powassan virus is rare — with about 28 people test positive for it every year — but about one in ten people who are infected die, and half are left with life-long disabilities.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak.
