Chester County is tackling a nasty tick-borne disease.

There are now four reported cases of Babesiosis in the county.

One of them has been confirmed by the county; the other three have not.

Babesiosis is a malaria-like disease that ranges from almost no symptoms to life-threatening status.

The disease usually rears its head during the summer months.
