More than 62,000 cases of Lyme disease were reported to the CDC in 2022, nearly a 70% increase from the annual average from 2017-2019. Despite this significant increase in cases reported, this is still only a fraction of the estimated 476,000 cases per year in the United States.

This increase can be attributed to changes to the surveillance method and case definition for Lyme disease, which allows a case to be reported solely based on laboratory evidence. This new method will help capture more cases, and provide better insight into disease trends going forward!
