It is for various reasons not appropriate to post a link to an article with almost no additional information, discussion, commentary, et cetera, in particular in an opening post. At the least you should quote a significant part of the article, including title, author and date. Please fix this in your posts.

"Different lines of evidence demonstrate persistence in individual cases, animal models and the laboratory. Despite this evidence a small group of healthcare professionals claims that there is no evidence for persistent Lyme infection. I cannot help but conclude that these individuals must either be misinformed or have personal beliefs c.q. conflicts of interest that affect their ability to perceive scientific reality and patient experience.

Some of these healthcare professionals who are denying the persistence of Lyme disease after antibiotic therapy are also actively spreading misinformation to mislead the media in a fight against physicians that choose to abandon outdated guidelines and recommendations in individual cases, where patients seem to be benefiting from prolonged and repeated courses of antibiotics."

I'm the writer of the article.

It goes into detail about all the lines of evidence suggesting persistence of the spirochete after treatment suggested by the IDSA for Lyme disease.

It sums up why the public narrative is a lie and why you might consider taking a longer course of antibiotics when you don't recover after a short course of antibiotics.

But one can read that if they read the article.
