‘Kissing bug’ case in DE raises alarm for summer

  • A deadly kissing bug

Here's how it works: The kissing bug usually bites people on their faces, near the eyes and the mouth (hence the nickname).

The CDC said in a statement April 19 that a child in DE was bitten on the face in July 2018 as she watched television in her bedroom.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: The insect known as the "kissing bug" has a confirmed sighting in Delaware. The parasite causes Chagas disease, which can have serious cardiac and gastrointestinal complications.

Her parents reached out to the Delaware Division of Public Health and the Delaware Department of Agriculture for help in identifying the insect - because they were concerned about possible disease transmission, the organization said.

These bugs are spreading north, according to reports.

This bug, commonly known as a triatomine, spreads Chagas, a disease that originated in Latin America.

Luckily, the girl who was bitten previous year did not become ill.

Although the risk of Trypanosoma cruzi transmitted by kissing bugs is minimal, most of the kissing bugs in the United States are potential disease vectors, and parasite transmission could increase because of climate change, according to a paper in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases in 2012.

Hamer said the kissing bug and Chagas have always been our neighbors: "The earliest reports are from the 1800s".

There have been more than 300,000 cases of people in the USA infected with the disease, according to the AHA.

Only a few cases of Chagas disease have been confirmed from contact with the insects on American soil, the CDC noted.

The critters are typically found in the southern part of the United States, Central America and South America. "A window air conditioning unit was located in the bedroom where the bite occurred (and) the family reported no recent travel outside the local area".
