United States, Canada and the Global communities map of Lyme Disease for the past 10 years to 2021.

This map is by John Hopkins. It is very detailed.
The CDC says to multiple annual figures by 10 for an accurate account of Lyme Disease cases.

Read and weep. .

Wow ,especially the 10Xs the amount, we've heard it before, but others didn't seem to want to believe it for a while.

There was one up in the states here,for dogs some years back... I remember thinking if the dogs can contract this so can the humans.

It is awful how wide spread the problem is!Thanks for putting up the map and info'!

I do like this site, but although the world numbers are through 2021,
the US map shows only numbers through 2019.

Thanks, Bonnie.

Ireland shows a total of 4

really, I don't know whether to laugh or cry

I know of 4 cases alone within a few miles radius of where I live

this is absurd

It’s John Hopkins. . . Long time Lyme deniers.
Never go there for Lyme diagnosis!

NOT RECOMMENDED
*** Due to the high number of complaints from
Lyme patients and their families, we do not recommend any
Johns Hopkins doctors when dealing with a
Lyme diagnosis or treatment.***

NOTE- The treatment guidelines Johns Hopkins' doctors follow (Infectious Disease Society of America- IDSA) were published in 2000, slightly updated in 2006 (minor changes), and are currently 13 years old.

These old guidelines do not utilize any of the current science or studies generated over the past decade. They were removed from the National Guideline Clearinghouse, however, they continue to be promoted at Johns Hopkins.

An investigation by the CT Attorney General found the guideline authors (some from Johns Hopkins) to be riddled with conflicts of interest.

AG Blumenthal stated...
"The IDSA's 2006 Lyme disease guideline panel undercut its credibility by allowing individuals with financial interests -- in drug companies, Lyme disease diagnostic tests, patents and consulting arrangements with insurance companies -- to exclude divergent medical evidence and opinion."

[To make matters worse, some of the Hopkins doctors have actively participated in attacking Lyme patients, LLMD's, speciality labs, etc. in journal, blog and news articles in an attempt to deny the existence of chronic Lyme disease and prevent patients from being treated.]

Think Hopkins Doctors Wouldn't Treat Lyme Patients Badly? Think Again!

QUOTE- “A federal judge in Maryland said The Johns Hopkins University, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY.N) and the Rockefeller Foundation must face a $1 billion lawsuit over their roles in a 1940s U.S. government experiment that infected hundreds of Guatemalans with syphilis..

“We [Hopkins] respect the legal process, and we will continue to vigorously defend the lawsuit.”

Disgusting!

All good info, Bonnie.
However... There are two kinda opposing factions on tick-borne diseases at Johns Hopkins. One is the Clinical Director, Division of Infectious Diseases. That division is responsible for patient treatment at several sites.

The other heads the Lyme disease Research Center.
https://www.hopkinslyme.org

Both are Dr's whose names begin with "A", so are often mistaken for each other.

This article has lots more info on how this dashboard was created,, including some indications that it may need more info and updating.
