Online-Lyme Borreliosis-Petition in Germany needs support!

Post by birgit123 » Mon 14 Nov 2011 17:19

I am turning to you as we need urgently support concerning an online petition to make Lyme Disease notifiable in Germany. Please read the text, why and how to sign the petition - everyone is allowed to sign, regardless where he/she lives oder which nationality he/she belongs. Every signature counts!
The ePetition will end on December 13, 2011.

Millions of people worldwide suffer from Lyme Disease (Lyme-Borreliosis), a dangerous bacterial infection transmitted by ticks. Even today there is no vaccine, no reliable diagnostic, no always-effective therapy and the amount of research done has been miniscule. Instead, people are misdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatism or Arthritis and the course of the disease can lead to disablement.

Trivialized, denied, ignored
The World Health Organization stated: In Germany at least 4 million people are infected with Lyme Disease. According to insurance companies one million Germans had been infected only in 2009. And numbers are increasing. By now, Lyme Disease has grown into epidemic proportions. It is the fastest growing infectious disease in Germany.

Many diseases have to be notified in Germany to evaluate its threat to the public. For years it has been prevented to make Lyme Disease notifiable, even though it is one of the most dangerous and fastest growing diseases. Why? This way it can be "officially" stated that Lyme Disease is still rare and no actions need to be taken.

How can you help?
Lyme-Disease has to be made notifiable in all states of Germany, by now it is notifiable only in some states. Help us stopping them from claiming it to be a rare disease and sign this Online-Petition to make Lyme Disease notifiable in Bremen. It takes only a few mouseclicks!

Hi Brigit,
What was the outcome of your petition?
Did you succeed; We are doing the same as you in Scotland as all countries in the world with Lyme disease should unite to increase the awareness to help find a cure, particularly, for Chronic sufferers.

Please help and pass our petition to your friends and many Germans vist Scotland and participate in outdoor activities and we would rather stop them getting Lyme disease by being aware.
