The infected seals have lost much weight and get coughing attacks. Biologists say the disease usually starts off the Danish coast and then moves north – but that years can pass with no sign of it at all.
Meanwhile, another northbound advance: two aggressive kinds of mosquitos ...moving into some places in southern Sweden. Both kinds attack even in broad daylight and both leave a painful irritation lasting much longer than from ordinary mosquito bites.
One type seems to be more of a connoisseur – taking a second or two to look for a good place to bite – or rather drill for blood – giving victims a chance to give it a whack.
But the other is much faster – a kind of hit-and-fly – making a get-away before juicy humans can jump.
