CDC: Blood-sucking bug confirmed in Delaware

The “kissing bug” — which bites people around their mouths and can pass along the fatal disease Chagas — has officially made it to Delaware.

In September, the Centers for Disease Control foreshadowed the deadly bloodsucker’s arrival here. The government agency warned that it was making its way north from Central and South America and had been reported in states such as Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
