Babesiosis cases are on the rise in the North East (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont)
People in 8 states should be aware of the signs of yet another tick-borne disease as cases rise, CDC says
According to the report, most babesiosis cases in the US are caused by tiny parasites spread by blacklegged ticks, called Ixodes scapularis, in northeastern and midwestern states. People can also catch it from contaminated blood transfusions, and organ transplants from infected donors. Babies can catch it from mothers with babesiosis.
