Tick-borne diseases in New York: Big increases in the past decade

November 18, 2017

In 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that the number of Americans diagnosed with Lyme disease each year was estimated at around 300,000. This is a 10-times increase over the more than 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported to CDC, making it the most commonly reported tick-borne illness in the United States.

A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Surveillance Summary  reported for the period of 2008-2015, a total of 275,589 cases of Lyme disease were reported to CDC (208,834 confirmed and 66,755 probable).

In addition, the report noted that 14 US states were met the criteria for classification as states with high incidence, New York being among them.

New York State health officials released the latest numbers on infectious diseases in the state in the Communicable Disease in New York State cases reported in 2016, which includes the three common tick-borne infections–Lyme disease, Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis–all contracted from the same blacklegged tick.
