Be Aware Everyone. Tick Population is increasing massively and recent studies show ONE in THREE Ticks carry Lyme Disease.

I know too many people who have contracted Lyme Disease and have had their lives destroyed. Be Aware. Article:

When Central Frontenac Councillor Brent Cameron started to have flu-like symptoms, he really didn’t think anything of it.
It was only weeks later when welts started to show on his body that he went to the emergency room.
“I started developing rashes, they were large legions, they were these raised welts,” he says.
Cameron, who also works in communications at Queen’s University, said he hadn’t seen a tick on his body and the rashes
didn’t look like a ‘bullseye,’ so doctors said to simply keep an eye on it.
He recalls sitting in the hospital that day in 2015, listening to the health official warn another patient about ticks and Lyme.

“It seemed a little surreal that it, because it ended up being diagnosed as Lyme disease two or three days later by my family doctor,”
he says. “That I would go from where I would listen to someone being cautioned about the disease and then having had it,
being sent on my way without a prescription for anything.”

These inconsistencies in diagnosis aren’t uncommon.
There are many people who have been bitten by ticks, became ill and disabled, and who feel that their case has not been heard.

Kingston Frontenac, Lennox and Addington’s Public Health’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kieran Moore says
Eastern Ontario is a hot spot for the ticks that can carry Lyme Disease and other bacteria.

Kingston health officials diagnosed more than 280 cases of Lyme in 2019.
In Ottawa, a 2018 study by the University of Ottawa showed one in three ticks tested positive for Lyme.

“It is an ever-expanding increase in the presence of ticks all the way to the Ottawa River, and if you go across to upstate New York
they’re a very high-risk area as well,” Moore said.

And while he says health officials are starting to recognize it more, the symptoms can be similar to other viruses
like the influenza and even COVID-19,
so Lyme Disease remains difficult to spot.

BE AWARE, Everyone. CHECK yourself often (twice a day) and use a mirror or friend to help.
