“Tick-borne flaviviruses continue to emerge and re-emerge and are a significant public health threat due to the geographical expansion of their tick vectors, the severe disease and fatality resulting from infections, and the long-term sequelae in survivors. Of importance, the human cases of Powassan virus and tick-borne encephalitis virus infections are on the rise, which often results in severe disease of the central nervous system with an estimated 20% or greater fatality rate. Although much is known about these viruses, there remain gaps in understanding basic transmission and pathogenesis.”
