Study was done by someone who believes in lyme persistence and long term antibiotics for lyme and has done important studies in that field , even wrote a book on that I think. The people who believe chronic Lyme is fake hate this guy. He's not in some establishment that blindly trusts cdc or whatever. But I guess people can find any excuse to not trust science. If people want to believe a narrative they will believe it and come up with a retroactive justificationSometimes studies rebuking labs can be a hatchet job as they too have their odd motivations and conflict of interest.
