COUNTY – Five Lunenburg County patients are now suddenly panicked six months following tests for Lyme disease that had come back negative.

¬†Provincial medical officer Dr. Robert Strang said five people from the South Shore were told they did not have Lyme disease, but Health Canada’s lab in Winnipeg had made a mistake and the tests were positive after all.

 A man from Mahone Bay was one of the five South Shore people who received the wrong results. He does not want his name used. In an interview, he said he went to his family physician with a rash on his stomach that seemed to be growing.
