Exhaustive work in woods produces map showing high-risk areas for Lyme disease
Researchers from Yale School of Public Health, have created a detailed map they claim could improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease.
The map shows a clear risk of Lyme disease across much of the Northeast, from Maine to northern Virginia. Researchers also identified a distinct high-risk region in the upper Midwest, including most of Wisconsin, northern Minnesota and a sliver of northern Illinois. Areas highlighted as “emerging risk” regions include the Illinois-Indiana border, the New York-Vermont border, southwestern Michigan and eastern North Dakota.
