A British newspaper confirms the spread of "ticks" in Europe

The British newspaper The Sun, citing a study by a group of scientists, said that the “Mite monster tick” (a blood-sucking tick of the genus Hyalomma) has begun to spread in Europe.

The newspaper article stated: “There are fears that these blood-sucking parasites, which transmit some deadly diseases, are spreading across Europe. This type of tick could be a carrier of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.”

According to the article, these large, aggressive ticks initially lived in regions with tropical climates, including Africa and Southeast Asia, but in Europe they remained in the shadows for decades. But in recent years, scientists say, some wild animals, including rabbits, have transmitted these parasites to European countries.

The newspaper said: “Ticks of the genus Hyalomma have become particularly common in Spain, the Balearic Islands and southern Italy. They have also been found in Britain, Portugal, Sardinia and Malta, and were recently discovered in Germany, Sweden, as well as in the northern regions of Italy.”

Earlier this month, experts warned that this tick may soon reach Poland's borders.
