  • 0

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Lyme Disease is one of the most commonly reported vector borne diseases in the U.S.

In a campaign similar to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the Florida Lyme Disease Association is spreading the word through social media with the hope of taking a bite out of Lyme Disease.

The alarming thing about the debilitating disease is that the CDC now acknowledges 300-Thousand new cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year which is a sharp contrast to the previous numbers of 30-Thousand.
