Negative Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Timely Diagnosis of Tick-Borne Infections
We describe 3 adult patients who did not have COVID-19 but instead had a treatable tick-borne infection. In each case, however, the duration of time until diagnosis was delayed due to issues that have arisen because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These issues need to be addressed to preserve patient well-being.
