Figure 3. Geographic range of BRBV and its vector, the Amblyomma americanum tick. Confirmed human cases of BRBV infection and virus detection in nonhuman animals are superimposed over historic and expanded geographic ranges of the lone star tick (A. americanum). Confirmed human cases of BRBV infection were identified by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and detection of virus in nonhuman animals occurred primarily through sampling of ticks and subsequent testing by using PCR and serologic testing of mammals. BRBV, Bourbon virus.
