Anyone who spends time in the outdoors, in backyards, in the woods, fields and even urban cities should be concerned about Lyme disease.
Because according to many reports, Lyme disease caused by ticks, increasingly threaten the health of people all over the world.
Most noteworthy, is over the past two decades, seven new tick-borne germs that can cause illness have been identified.
As reported by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the number of cases of Lyme disease in the United States, has tripled.
The states with highest incidence of this disease is #1 Maine, followed by Vermont, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, West Virginia, New York, and Virginia.
Tick-borne and mosquito diseases are also on the rise in other states like Florida. They have seen a 77% increase in tick-borne disease infections.
But, it’s not just in the United States.
Lyme Disease Around The World
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, say ticks are abundant in woodlands all across Europe from early spring to late autumn. Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is the most common tick-borne disease in Europe along with Lyme borreliosis.
Canada has also seen a higher risk of acquiring Lyme disease. Some patients are reporting that doctors in Canada are not aware of how prevalent it is, making it difficult to diagnose early.
As a result, due to climate change, Lyme disease has spread to Asia and around the world.
According to Popular Science, Lyme disease is thriving because warmer temperatures are making cold places suitable habitats for ticks.
One study predicts the incidence of this tick-borne disease will rise around 21% by mid-century because of climate change. And higher temperatures spur ticks to venture farther in search of hosts like deer, squirrels, and mice.
