Figure 9.5.3: Lyme disease by year
Rate of Lyme disease infections reported per 100,000 population, Middlesex-London and Ontario, 2005 to 2018
Although low, the rate of Lyme disease infections among Middlesex-London residents significantly increased from 2005 to 2018. The Ontario rate also significantly increased over the same time frame.
Across the 14-year time period, the local rate was lower than the provincial rate in all but two years, and from 2016 to 2018 the difference was significant.
