Here is the article ...

There is no cure for this virus.
It appears to be affecting people bitten by ticks in Kansas and Missouri. It can be fatal. The total number of cases is only 4-5 over the last couple of years. So there is no need for panic. But good precautions against tick bites seem like a wise step.
