Warning CDC is Wrong

Florida Department of Health Warning- CDC is Wrong

Florida EPI Update

"Lyme Disease. Carina Blackmore cautioned listeners that an article appearing in a recent issue of MMWR concerning Lyme disease contained faulty information which the CDC had tried, but could not validate. She advised anyone hesitant about a diagnosis to look closely at the case definition and to use the two-tiered approach when making their decision. Dr. Crockett added that Lyme disease is not a large problem in the state of Florida, that many of our reported cases of Lyme were acquired in other states."
