Abstract

The Powassan virus is a Tick Borne Neuropathogen that is deadlier than Lyme Disease due to the fact that it has a rapid onset of neurological symptoms, and also has a brief transmission time of 15 minutes after the attachment of a tick to its victim [1-4]. It is the only flavivirus that is associated with ticks, and that is also found to occur in the Western Hemisphere [1].
