Tick-borne Powassan virus claims life of former US Senator Kay Hagan
Former US Senator Kay Hagan has died of Powassan virus
Former US Senator Kay Hagan, of North Carolina, has died, following a three-year struggle with brain inflammation caused by tick-borne Powassan virus.
According to news reports, Hagan contracted the illness in late 2016. Since then, the condition had made it difficult for her to speak and walk.
Symptoms of Powassan can develop in the weeks after the bite an infected tick. Initial symptoms are typically flu-like with a fever.
If the infection spreads to the brain, severe neurological symptoms can develop, such as strong headache, mental confusion, paralysis, seizures and unconsciousness.
It’s estimated that over half of patients who survive the infection are left with permanent neurological dysfunction.

Funny how 'social security' has a shortfall...but never WELFARE!
Gimme a break.
Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

Nah, the problem is the goobermint...Unknown AC.

The election of Donald Trump didn't cause the hatred displayed by the progressive liberal left and democratic party. The election of Donald Trump exposed it.

If I'm not mistaken, wasn't she involved in trying to expose pedo rings? If that's the lady I'm thinking of, the 2 other people who helped her already died under mysterious circumstances - and that would make this an assassination.
There's no such thing as gravity. The Earth just sucks.
