​Breaking News - Lyme Disease: Second Bacteria Called Borrelia Mayonii Brings Severe Lyme Illness Symptoms

CDC Says Over 300,000 New U.S. Lyme Infections Per Year!

Lyme disease can be now started by a second bacteria called Borrelia mayonii. The disease symptoms can become even nastier than its predecessor and infects people bitten by the black-legged deer tick, according to Bangor Daily News.

  • Until now, some scientists thought that the tick-borne illness was caused by only one species of bacteria, called Borrelia burgdorferi. But scientists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Mayo Clinic have discovered a second, related species of bacteria, Borrelia mayonii, that can infect people bitten by the black-legged deer tick.
  • The CDC recommends hikers reduce their risk of tick-borne infections by avoiding woody and brushy areas with high grass, walking in the center of trails, using insect repellents with DEET or permethrin, and wearing protective clothing.
