Dr. Giroir,

Please see the attached PDF published in 1999 by the Canadian Office of Biosafety Information which was edited by the Colorado State University Office of Biosafety.



NAME: Borrelia burgdorferi

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

Information edited by the Colorado State University Office of Biosafety; June 16, 1998.

From section VI:

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



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.


How many people get Lyme disease?

“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.

This 2005 video with transcript of Dr. Lida Mattman states Bb transmission can happen in numerous ways – not just by a tick:


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:

Vaccine Court & Autism

10 Minute Video

Vaccine Court and Autism…

Truth in Media with Ben Swann
  • In 1986 Congress passed a law called the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that gives vaccine manufacturers a blanket exemption from any medical liability.
  • Those injured by vaccines can not sue vaccine manufacturers but instead must petition the U.S. government in the Federal Claims Court called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
  • The Learned Intermediary Doctrine gives manufacturers no liability for giving or failing to give accurate or complete information regarding vaccinations.
  • 30 Years later the vaccine schedule has tripled while the table of injuries has become far more restrictive forcing 90% of petitioners into “off table” litigation
  • Mark Blaxill, father of a vaccine injured child, is part of The Canary Party, a social movement that stands up to industry.


For more:  This is how brand new vaccines are approved to the pediatric immunization schedule. Basic dialogue before they voted:

Q: Is it dangerous to use this vaccine with other vaccines?

A: We have no data on that. Once approved, it will be given along with other vaccines but we have no clue whether that’s safe or not.

Somehow approving a new vaccine with no data on the accumulated cocktail effect is OK to them IF you put them in different limbs……scientifically, this is quite a head scratcher.  By nature, vaccines are systemic.

Q: Do we at least have any data from other countries that used this vaccine in combination with other vaccines?

A: Not to my knowledge.

Sounds good to me. Lets vote yes!

Only after they vote, one guy voices concern over 16 heart attack deaths in the safety trials.


Global Lyme Alliance Announces New Partnership With Delaware Lyme Board to Help Educate Physicians About Lyme Disease

MARCH 12, 2019

STAMFORD, CONN and DOVER, DEL (March 12, 2019)—Global Lyme Alliance (GLA), the leading 501(c)(3) dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases through research, education and awareness, today announced it has partnered with the state of Delaware’s Lyme Disease Education Oversight Board (LDEOB) and launched an online Lyme disease course for physicians and other healthcare professionals.

This Continuing Medical Education (CME) certified activity presents and discusses recent advances in the management of Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses. Among the topics covered are the epidemiology of Lyme, diagnostic challenges, common co-infections and routine recommendations for the testing and treatment of Lyme disease infections based on current guidelines.

“The incidence of Lyme and tick-borne disease in Delaware and nationwide is alarming and causes so much suffering,” said Sara Tyghter, GLA Director of Education and Outreach. “GLA was delighted to work with Delaware’s LDEOB to determine the learning objectives for this educational activity and help select its faculty members.”

Serving as faculty for the course, “A Clinical Guide to Diagnosing and Treating Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Borne Illnesses,” are GLA Scientific Advisory Board member Charles Chiu, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, and Elena Frid, M.D. a board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist in private practice in New York.

The course eventually came about after Delaware House Speaker Peter C. Schwartzkopf, State Senator Ernesto B. Lopez, and other Delaware state lawmakers became aware of the high incidence of Lyme and the consequent suffering it caused constituents. In 2014 lawmakers sponsored the Delaware Senate Joint Resolution 10 which was signed into law and established Delaware’s Lyme Disease Prevention Task Force. Two years later Delaware House Bill 291 created the LDEOB and reached out to GLA since it already offered CME-accredited programs. Members worked with GLA, Drs. Chiu and Frid, pictured, in collaboration with the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and RedMedEd, an e-learning entity, to bring the Lyme disease course to fruition.

“We feel that this program is essential to help educate healthcare professionals on the complexity of Lyme disease as a multi-systemic infection that can have the potential for long-term illness if diagnosed late or inadequately treated,” said Dr. Krista Griffin, a LDEOB member. “We wanted to impress upon healthcare providers that Lyme disease is a clinical diagnosis; rash presentation or lab testing can confirm a diagnosis but should not be solely relied upon.”

Speaker Schwartzkopf added, “Delaware is right in the middle of a hotspot for Lyme disease which is misunderstood and sometimes misdiagnosed. . . Continuing Medical Education classes like this will help physicians identify Lyme early and take action quickly to limit its effects and treat patients quickly.” Senator Lopez noted, “The Delaware General Assembly values and appreciates this meaningful step forward on behalf of all affected by this illness.”

GLA is committed to providing CME-accredited educational programs for healthcare professionals to learn more about diagnosing and treating Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. For information on all its educational programs, go to
