Both TBE and ITBB are reportable diseases for official statistics throughout Russia.
In general, annual changes in TBE, ITBB, and double infection illness occur in parallel (Figure).

This is why the prevalences of TBE, ITBB, and double infection illness correlate well, and human cases of double infection are more frequent in the regions where the incidence of both TBE and borrelioses is especially high.
Therefore, prevalences of risk for human TBE, ITBB, and double infection may be no more than estimates.
