SECTION I – INFECTIOUS AGENT

NAME: Borrelia burgdorferi

Date prepared: October 11, 1997 Prepared by- Canadian Office of Biosafety

From section VI:

LABORATORY-AQUIRED INFECTIONS: 45 reported cases up to 1976 with 2 deaths.

Discussion…..

The spirochete responsible for Lyme disease was not formally identified until 1982 by Willy Burgdorfer so how did laboratory personnel become infected (and with two reported deaths) prior to 1982?

Notice that “modes of transmission” identified are other than vector borne.
Were these infections acquired at Pathogen Detection Laboratories or bio-warfare facilities?

What is most disturbing here is a reported death rate of 4% for this group. The CDC recently estimated an annual 329,000 Lyme disease cases occur yearly in the U.S. and a 4% death rate would equate to 13,160 deaths annually.

Reference:

How many people get Lyme disease?
https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/stats/humancases.html

“In this study, researchers estimated that 329,000 (range 296,000–376,000) cases of Lyme disease occur annually in the United States.”

How prevalent is death from complications of Lyme disease if no one is looking for the pathogen at the time of death? Wouldn’t it make sense to screen still births, the hearts from cardiac deaths or the brains from patients who pass from Alzheimer’s disease for Borrelia infections?

If no one is looking then no one is counting.

For example: Take a look at the Microbiology Laboratory page for Brigham and Woman’s Hospital which is located in one of the highest Lyme endemic regions in America. Do you see any mention of testing for the causative agent of Lyme disease; Borrelia burgdorferi?

It’s as if this disease is of no concern for the medical community and that needs to change Dr. Giroir as patient testimony continues to describe a disease that is destroying lives, ending careers while leaving its victim in financial ruin.

**Comment**

This 2005 video with transcript of Dr. Lida Mattman states Bb transmission can happen in numerous ways – not just by a tick:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/04/02/transmission-of-lyme-disease-lida-mattman-phd/

Excerpt:

We know now it’s in tears and people wipe their eyes and then you shake hands with them. Or we don’t laugh so hard about the physician we had in the hospital who wouldn’t touch the doorknobs in the hospital without taking his white coat and handling the doorknob through a coat. Maybe he wasn’t so insane after all.

So we think this is spread by what is called fomites (an inanimate objector substance that is capable of transmitting infectious organisms fromone individual to another) which is the pencil in the bag as you pick up a pen to write a check or anything you handle. So it’s in urine and in tears and it’s also spread by mosquitoes and who hasn’t had a mosquito bite?  We’ve tested the mosquitoes in Michigan and sure enough they can carry the Lyme spirochete.  

Together with her collegue JoAnne Whittacker, Mattman did groundbreaking work on Lyme testing. Her Gold Standard Culture Method has disappeared thanks to the concerted suppression on microscopy. In 2004 she already claimed that she could not find any uninfected blood in the USA anymore.

Mattman isolated living Borrelia spirochetes in mosquitoes, fleas, mites, semen, urine, blood, plasma and Cerebral Spinal Fluid. She discovered that this bacteria is dangerous because it can survive and spread without cell wall (L shape). Because L-forms do not possess cell wall, they are resistant to antibiotics that act upon the cell wall.

Others have found various ways Bb is transmitted as well:

THE CDC/IDSA/NIH STILL HAVEN’T RECEIVED THE MEMO or they are ignoring it
