The incidence of Lyme disease, as reported to the Centers for Disease Control, has jumped significantly over the past 20 years, and at least part of that change is attributed to a warming climate. These are the most recent available statistics; 2017 is expected to be even worse than trend in the Northeast due to the generally warm winter weather (Stella notwithstanding).

More warming, more ticks, more disease

Anyone who lives in this region likely knows one or two people or more who have been infected with Lyme disease from a tick bite. That used to be a rare occurrence in Sullivan County in New York, and Wayne and Pike counties in Pennsylvania.

Faso’s healthcare fallout

After Republicans in the House failed to pass the American Health Care Act (ACHA aka Trumpcare), Congressman John Faso issued a statement that said, in part, “Since the start of this process, I have said that we must keep what works in the current healthcare system and fix what doesn’t.”
