In honour of Tick week in the Netherlands (June 22-26 2020) we definitely wanted to take this opportunity to highlight and share our knowledge around ticks. With over 28 years expertise in safe and healthy travelling, we know the importance of prevention from tick bites. Ticks can be dangerous as some of them might carry the Borrelia Burgdorferi bacteria or TBE virus. We are in conversation with two tick experts to display some trends, talk about urban legends and moreover create more awareness in prevention of a tick bite. Made possible by 247 streaming with our host and founder/CEO of Care Plus/Travel Health group Arnoud Aalbersberg and two guests:
Fedor Gassner ( NL, Independent expert in biological risks, Wageningen University & Research)
Steve Schofield (CA, Senior Advisor, Communicable Disease Control Program, Directorate of Force Health Protection Canadian Forces Health Services Group Headquarters National Defence / Government of Canada)
