A Tale of Two Pandemics: Lyme and COVID-19

Dr. Bransfield discusses the similarities and differences between the two pandemics of Lyme Disease and COVID-19, with a particular emphasis on their neuropsychiatric manifestations. Viral infections have been associated with mood changes, psychosis, changes in neuromuscular function and even demyelinating processes, as has Lyme Disease, particularly neuroborreliosis. He examins the connections, such as they are known to date, and answers questions live during the webinar.

If you are unfamiliar with Dr. Bransfield, you are in for a treat.  He is one of the few psychiatrists who studies the psychiatric effects of Lyme/MSIDS.
