The Vysočina region of the Czech Republic has seen an alarming rise in the number of tick-borne encephalitis cases. According to newly-released data, the number of cases has doubled in comparison with the previous year - 19 recorded instances in the region this year, none proving fatal. Incidences of another tick-borne disease, Borreliosis, in Vysočina are also up, with 118 reported cases. Low levels of inoculation by Czechs against these diseases as compared with countries such as Austria, are partially blamed for the high infection rate.
