The reported number of cases of tick-borne encephalitis in South Moravia has more than tripled. By the end of July, 38 cases of the potentially fatal disease had been reported, up from roughly a dozen in the two previous summers.
There is no cure for encephalitis, but only about one in four Czechs have themselves vaccinated against it. The country has five times as many cases as in neighbouring Austria, where 90 per cent of the population takes this precaution.
