    This is a remarkable damming report that confirms everything we have been saying. Let’s hope it gets wide circulation and brings about some corrective action in the U.S. and here in Canada where the IDSA guidelines are even more rigidly enforced. The IDSA has made a serious pandemic disappear. During Richard Nixon’s era it was determined that the CDC was expensive to run and that they would have to accept funding from industry which would be kept at arms length in trust funds. It seems that hasn’t worked very well to keep the interests of industry from directing the response to the Lyme epidemic.
