Special Report with Senator Scavello

 

Senator Mario Scavello discusses the critically important issue of Lyme Disease with John Celmer, Tick Squad, Lyme Disease Support & Education as well as two women, Bonnie and Rita who currently suffer from Lyme Disease. There are reported cases of Lyme disease in all 67 counties in the Keystone State. The spike in the number of cases statewide more than quintupled from 2000 to 2016, the latest year in which the Pennsylvania Department of Health has records. We jumped from 2,271 cases to 11,443 cases between those years.
