US 300K new Lyme infections a year; near 100% population within decade?

With CDC reporting 300,000 new cases in us of lyme infection every year since around 2012, isn't that nearly the whole American infected with lime within a decade?

As even people who don't get out much still destinated to contract it with the next decade, the question arises where are they getting it from? chemtrails? or what??

A tiny bit of research shows that the 300,000 cases a year are an estimate, not confirmed cases, and 96% of the reported cases are in 14 states. A new case can be someone that has had lyme disease before, and was cured. So the numbers can be slightly more skewed.

Always carry matches

Oh and

Lyme disease comes from ticks and .... ticks

"There is no credible evidence that Lyme disease can be transmitted through air, food, water, or from the bites of mosquitoes, flies, fleas, or lice."

And this part

"In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36 to 48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted."

Borrelia burgdorferi is a bacterial species of the spirochete class of the genus Borrelia. B. burgdorferi exists in North America and Europe and until 2016 was the only known cause of Lyme disease in North America (Borrelia mayonii, found in the midwestern US, is also known to cause the disease)

There proof

Author information 1 Department of Biology and Medical Parasitology, Pomeranian Medical University, Powstancow Wielkopolskich Av. 72, 70-111 Szczecin, Poland. Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine the infection level of adult forms and larvae of ticks and mosquitoes with Borrelia burgdorferi in the forested areas of Szczecin. A total of 1699 ticks Ixodes ricinus, including 1422 nymphs, 277 adult forms and 2862 mosquito females representing the genera Aedes (89.6%) and Culex (10.4%) were collected between the years 2004 and 2005.
A further 3746 larvae and 1596 pupae of Culex pipiens pipiens were colleted from water bodies. Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. was detected in the arthropods by the method of indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA).

A positive immunological reaction was detected in 16.6% of the adult forms and in 16.5% of the nymphs of Ixodes ricinus. Spirochetes were also detected in 1.7% of mosquito females, 3.2% of larvae and in 1.6% of pupae of Culex pipiens pipiens. The results of the present study confirm that contact with ticks constitutes the main risk of contracting Lyme disease, although mosquitoes play a role as vectors as well.

US population: @ 350,000,000


. . . . . . . 1,167 years.

I think we're okay.

But just in case. . . . . .

Used to go down the Caribbean every year to be a shovel monkey.

First thing I remember the coordinators tell me was "Doesn't matter if it's desert heat, wear pants for where we are going".

Being 21 at the time I wore shorts, we bush whacked for about an hour, every plant was out to kill me, my legs swelled up.

At that point I fully understood why you wear long pants when in the bush, and that includes where plants aren't out to cause second degree burns on your legs, it's to keep the bugs out. Don't go into 1ft + bush without long pants tucked into your socks, ticks are everywhere, poison plants are all over as well.

There's way more than 3m people in the US. Like 110x more. So...1100 years if accurate.

I don't want this to be construed as non-alarmist. The rise of Lyme Disease and ticks in general (or so it seems) is tragic, and terrifying. Even into our 20's, we used to go trudging thru forests, NOT on hiking paths, and I think one time, someone got a tick on them which was promptly removed. These last several years, even on asphalt trails through suburban forest preserves its as if its raining ticks. I have no doubt Lyme Disease escaped from the lab near Lyme, CT - whether accidental or not, whomever was responsible committed one of the greatest crimes against humanity (and animal-kind) in history.

Someone has been grabbing ticks from Plum Island and throwing them at the population.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but at the rate of 300,000 a year and considering a total population of 300,000,000...wouldn’t that take 1,000 years to infect the total population? Not 10 years, lolol
