    KS - Tick-borne Bourbon Virus new, deadly mystery

    Newly discovered tick-borne 'Bourbon Virus' is behind mysterious death of Kansas man

    John Seested, 68, was admitted to University of Kansas hospital in June with symptoms similar to those of tick-borne diseases
    But tests for known illnesses came back negative shortly before he went into multiple organ failure and died
    Researchers from the CDC and University of Kansas discovered the disease was tick borne, dubbing it the Bourbon Virus
    No vaccine currently exists for the virus, though researchers say they're working on how to combat it
    ---the story at MoS link above

    I DJ'd a 4th of July party at a Bourbon Co. lake once and survived a tick bite; but that was centuries ago.

    Wonder if Bourbon will be part of the cure or vaccine? Or at least relax you ahead of the cure or vaccine??!!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
