Is the media playing this down ?
I believe it has spread all over the mainland 48 states.
I know people are still getting this.
What do you think ?

And that's just the start. Other tropical diseases are on the rise, especially across the southern tier of the US, as our climate slowly warms. Dengue fever is making inroads into southern Texas. Stay tuned for Malaria and Yellow Fever...

I don't think Lyme disease has spread as far but it has spread considerably from its origin in Lyme, Connecticut. However, it's stayed a lot in more northern climes last I saw a distribution map.

West Nile apparently first got into the US through again thru the Northeast US, NY area first reported in 1999 and with first deaths. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/west...9_detailed.htm

As of 2003 Colorado seems to have the most cases, don't know if media attention has turned away or perhaps funding has had an impact, or cases are way down overall with this new map/chart for Dec 2007.
