The authors stress the importance of healthcare providers being prepared and educated about these changes to effectively diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases like Lyme disease.

Impact on Disease Patterns

Climate change significantly affects tick behavior, which serves as vectors for Lyme disease. Changes in temperature, rainfall patterns, and habitat availability contribute to expanding tick habitats and their active periods. This leads to an increased risk of tick bites and subsequent Lyme disease transmission. As temperature continues to rise, Lyme may too.
