Infectious ticks: how to avoid the danger
Now that the state of emergency in the Czech Republic had ended, more and more people are spending time outdoors.

Many of them may be infected, and as a result they can cause serious illnesses in humans, such as tick-borne encephalitis, Lyme disease or rare forms of tularemia. Dr. Jan Kábrt, head doctor at Program Health Plus, provides advice on how to minimise the risk of infection and avoid serious health problems.
