    I have found this article on internet and it says about the Australian doctors risking their reputations by diagnosing patients with Lyme disease. “Health authorities say there is no evidence that the Australian ticks carry the Lyme bacteria… Yet many doctors claim they have many patients with Lyme symptoms”..

    “Lyme treating doctors say if a patient is infected with a local Borrelia species, it won’t show up on Australian tests. But it might on the US ones which claim to be more sensitive. Australian tests look for antibodies to the two main Borrelia species found overseas, but there are many other species and Australia might have its own.”
