The Pennsylvania Department of Health said Lyme disease is currently the fourth most common infection reported in the state.
Lyme disease commonly goes undiagnosed at first because the symptoms often present themselves as other diseases. The whole Northeast has seen an influx in cases this year.
Last month, JPMorgan Chase blamed its multibillion-dollar trading loss on the undiagnosed Lyme disease of Ina Drew, who was in charge of investments for the bank. The company said because she was frequently out of the office due to fatigue, the investment office was allowed to make riskier bets.
