Warm weather could be to blame for creating a perfect storm of favorable conditions for the disease’s transfer to humans.

As of August 21, 38 states had reported human infections. The cases reported to the CDC total 1,118, including 41 deaths.

75% of the cases are in Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota and Oklahoma, however, cases in California have also been diagnosed.
