Mosquito, Tick Diseases Triple In The U.S. Since 2004


According to a report by NBC News, more and more Americans are falling victim to diseases spread by ticks and mosquitoes. The CDC reports that between 2004 and 2016, over 640,000 Americans were infected by so-called vector-borne diseases, and nine new diseases, such as Zika, have emerged. NBC reports that most of the increase comes from the arrival of Zika virus in 2015 and from ticks. Dr. Lyle Petersen of the CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases said that longer, hotter summers may be contributing to the growing number of cases. Petersen told reporters, “The number of reported vector-borne disease cases has tripled over the last 13 years." https://ift.tt/2KrPrSU http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
