Lyme disease cases in New York State are showing a concerning uptick, with reported cases this year already surpassing the entirety of 2022.


The state notes over 7,000 reported incidents annually of the tick-borne ailment, stemming from the bite of a deer tick that remains attached for at least 24 hours.

Doctors say early detection and treatment is paramount.

Symptoms include fatigue, headaches, and often a rash near the bite location.
