Czech Television reports that the number of people who were diagnosed with Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis this year, was the highest in seven years. 4,018 people were affected by Lyme disease and 627 by encephalitis. Experts attribute this to an unusually warm spring, with a large number of cases being reported in April. Southern Bohemia was the worst hit part of the country.
