In the summer in the Crimea, people most often encounter ticks, hepatitis A and heat stroke. About it FAN said Vladimir Meshcheryakov, chief physician of the State Budgetary Institution of Public Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan “Center for Public Health and Medical Prevention”.

According to him, the list of the most common problems also includes intestinal infections, overheating and hypothermia. The specialist says that in addition to tick-borne encephalitis and borreliosis, there are less common infections – anaplasmosis and ehrlichiosis.

The head physician recommends wearing tight clothing with elastic bands when going out into nature so that the tick cannot get on the surface of the skin. According to the head physician, about 200 tick bites were recorded on the peninsula over the past week, but this statistic is considered positive, he said.

Infectious diseases, in particular hepatitis A, increase in the heat, the doctor added. In order not to get sick, it is necessary to wash your hands well, vegetables, fruits and berries, all products that have come into contact with the soil, Meshcheryakov emphasized.

“In case of problems, you need to contact a medical institution where they will provide qualified assistance,” he warned.
