Doctors have warned that Powassan virus, contracted from ticks, kills one in three people and there is no cure.
Dr. Daniel Cameron, President of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society, said that if you are bitten by an infected tick you can get the virus within a matter of minutes and symptoms are severe.
You can get headaches, vomiting, weakness, confusion, seizures, high fevers, memory loss and stiff neck. Symptoms occur suddenly and people generally show up in the emergency room when they hit.
Most cases have been reported in the northeastern US and Great Lakes region. Researchers with the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station said the Powassan virus is starting to show up in Bridgeport and Branford.

A study known as the Review into Antimicrobial Resistance warned that superbugs with a high resistance to antibiotics could kill 10 million people worldwide each year by 2050, unless more action is taken, reported RT.com.
The Word of God already tells us what will happen in the last days, before the return of the Lord.
Jesus said concerning the last days,
“Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places” Matthew 24:7.
Many more prophecies concerning the last days are found in the Bible, which should be of interest to everyone. More importantly, the Words of Life, the road map to eternal life, are found in the Word of God.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining will surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
