The European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) recently announced a new list of the thirty most dangerous infectious diseases, which included Lyme Borreliose (LB). According to the American CDC, LB is the fastest spreading vector-borne disease in North America. Recently a group of 15 authors even publicly admitted that the current serological tests are so unreliable that they encourage to stop testing most patients with suspected infection.
Then why is the available direct DNA test for Lyme not made available to the public in order to detect LB infection as early as possible? This question was asked to the new director of the CDC.
