Lyme Disease Cases Much Higher Than Reported

by

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that the number of Lyme disease cases may be ten times higher than are actually reported.  Senators from two of the 13 states where Lyme disease is most prevalent, Minnesota and Maine, are calling on the Administration to take swift action to prevent and respond to the disease that is spread by black legged ticks.  Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Susan Collins of Maine wrote a letter to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, urging the agency to use all available resources to improve diagnostic tools and ramp up efforts to prevent the spread of the disease.
