Self-report. Bats and their ectoparasites, such as ticks, have recently been able to detect a wide variety of viruses, bacteria and parasites. Some of these have been proven to be pathogenic to humans, but most are only suspected of being pathogenic. The reason for this renewed interest is mainly the serious outbreaks of viruses closely related to or similar to SARS-Cove-1, SARS-Cove-2 and bad-related viruses such as MERS-Cove, Ebola virus, and lysovirus. Causes bad rabies), nephrovirus and hendravirus. There are more than 1,400 bats tails, 19 of which occur in Sweden. A tick breed, Carios vespertilionis, The so-called short-legged bat tick (Fig. 1) is the most common hemorrhage in bats in Sweden. In exceptional cases, it can also bite people and then cause severe bite reactions that require antibiotic treatment .
Using PCR technology, DNA sequencing and phylogenetic analysis, we studied 92 short-legged bat bats collected in the Upland and Smalland. . We found that 24 percent were infected with one or more borreli species, which belong to the group of phylogenetic recurrent borreli bacteria. Some ticks infected with Borrelia SP CBP1 previously found in the United Kingdom and France were positive. But we have not been able to detect the presence of Lyme disease, such as Borrelia burgdorferi Sensuo Lotto, or Borrelia miamotoi, which causes re-influenza. The latter two bacteria are spread by the common tick exot rickins in Sweden. Although Borrelia sp CPB1 belongs to the phylogenetic group that causes recurrent fever, it remains to be seen whether this species is also pathogenic.
