In the past couple weeks, a number of tickborne disease reports came out of the Northeastern United States, and I’m not including Lyme disease.

Four Powassan virus disease cases were reported from Connecticut, Maine and Rhode Island, while in the Syracuse, NY area, 2-times the number of anaplasmosis cases have been reported year to date, double what was seen during the past 5 years.
