RE: Health and Medicine
Despite advances in modern education and medicine, we are headed backwards on some fronts. What if a healthy local mosquito bites an infected person "from away" gets swatted away before fill up and then bites a native person and shares the parasite?

Malaria May Be Back in Italy After Decades Amid ‘Very Hot Summer’

"It’s not probable, almost impossible, to pass on the [parasite] from patient to patient," Paternoster told NBC News. "So the only option I can think of is that the mosquito that carried the disease may have traveled to Italy, and survived somehow.""

Scandinavian researchers are developing an edible TBE vaccine

"TBE is carried in ticks’ saliva, usually if they have bitten and sucked blood from small rodents, and is spread to humans and animals through bites. It causes an inflammation of the brain, and symptoms include a high temperature, severe headache and in some cases cramps, though most who contract the disease make a full recovery.

Up to a third of those affected, however, suffer from permanent problems including tiredness and memory disorders, and in rare cases even paralysis."
