PENNSYLVANIA LEADS NATION IN LYME DISEASE CASES........
Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years, and for the first time, deer ticks have been found in all of its 67 counties, the state Department of Health reports.
The number of Pennsylvanians diagnosed with the disease also continues to grow. Between 2013 and 2014, the cases of Lyme disease in the state jumped 25 percent, from 5,900 to 7,400, the Health Department says. In addition, less than 50 percent of those diagnosed with the illness recall being bitten, according to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that the diease is most common in children, older adults, and others, such as road crew workers, firefighters, and park rangers, who spend time outdoors and have higher exposure to ticks.
