no, west Nile virus passed by birds and mosquito's and Lyme disease passed by deer ticks. illnesses are different too, but both can kill humans.

No, West Nile virus is a virus and Lyme Disease is a Spirochite which is a bacteria like organism. A tick can pass on many infections including OreliaIAurgdorfi, Anaplasmosis and Babesiosis. Lyme (and it's co-infections) is a terrible and often misdiagnosed epidemic, especially on the East Coast of the United States. If you know anyone who is sick and has gotten many different diagnosis and doesn't really know what is wrong with them, seriously consider Lyme Disease. My daughter's whole family is infected. Everyone should learn about this problem. Check out: www.lowerbuckslymegroup.org and click links for more good info. Evelyn
