........According to the inspector generals report, [border] agents have contracted everything from scabies and lice to chickenpox, including bringing the disease home to their own children, as they care for the unaccompanied minors. The report said some illegal immigrants unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities caused unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste.

Just think. These kids will soon be sharing classrooms with your kids and serving your food in restaurants. Sleep well, America. You earned it.
For the love of....
What happened to my "Jesusland" Michael Moore promised me!
Besides TB, other respiratory diseases, and a potential Ebola outbreak, unscreened and non-quarantined illegal aliens can bring in diseases that can be spread through contact with unvaccinated children and infected individuals who do not wash their hands after using the bathroom or who discard used toilet tissue with fecal matter into waste baskets instead of flushing them.
- Poliomyelitis (viral infection spread through the fecal-oral route)
- Norovirus acute gastroenteritis (spread through food and water contaminated by fecal matter)
- Giardiasis (a parasite transmitted via the fecal-oral route)
- Hepatitis A (a virus spread by eating or drinking water contaminated with infected feces)
- Hepatitis E (fecal oral transmission route)
- Rotavirus (vaccination can prevent it in infants; it is contagious especially in infants and children)
- Typhoid fever (caused by bacteria Salmonella; sick people and carriers have the bacteria in the digestive tract and in their feces; travelers are advised to be careful when going abroad)
- Shigellosis or bacillary dysentery (caused by the Shigella bacteria spread through the fecal-oral route)
- Cholera (an infection of the bacterium vibrio cholera which is transmitted through food and water contaminated with feces)
- Cryptosporidiosis (a protozoan parasite spread through the fecal-oral route)
- Ascariasis (round worm infection in young children, prevalent in tropical and subtropical regions where sanitation and hygiene are poor; not common in the U.S.)
sounds like an affirmative action hire to me.
BTW, Cholera is on that list. Cameroon is having a horrible cholera outbreak, but it’s being overshadowed by the Ebola epidemic.
It looks like the world is going to hell in a handbasket.
If I want Norovirus, heck, I can just take a cruise!
When you look at how it’s spread ..... it brings to mind a certain small but vocal portion of the population, one that Bathhouse Barry seems to like an awful lot.
you mean base perversion isnt limited to American Citizens?......
Only one part I disagree with:
“Although the Ebola virus was generally thought of as being spread through direct contact with bodily fluids, a 2012 experiment, which reported that macaques (primates) contracted Ebola from piglets inoculated oro-nasally with the Zaire strain of the Ebola virus (EBOV), while caged in the same room without physical contact, cannot be explained.”
Um, sure it can. That strain went airborne.
It goes into a trash can next to The Throne.
Obola & the Dems are trying hard to get that 1.7 % number bumped into something that translates into a significant voting block. If they can't do it with American Citizens, they'll 'import' the perverts. The Statue of Liberty quote should now read: Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses and perverts yearning to live free at taxpayer expense. BTW, people keep talking about 'scabies' ..... if you look that up, here is what you'll find: Sexual contact is the most common form of transmission among sexually active young people, and scabies has been considered by many to be a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
And... the current outbreak is Ebola Zaire...
Amazing. I though people got scabies from infected animals
It was Ebola Zaire, too - the worst of the Ebolas & what is now going around Africa.
To be totally serious, when I saw it was considered an STD, I was really surprised. I don’t think most folks know this.
Right! They'd leave the site of the contagion to spread it across the United States. In their mind, a quarantine to keep the disease within the boundaries of Dc so it can be fought and contain is TOO risky to their mortal existence. They want out. In so doing, they multiply the chance of spreading Ebola throughout the United States. [Of course, thanks to the morons in the Donkey and GOPee establishment elites to get illegal alien votes, they might have already permitted Ebola into the United States already!]
it is rather remarkable
Well, yes and no. It's 97% Zaire Ebola Virus, but different. G-Z-Ebola, and maybe the delta 3% is very significant. .Kind of like men and chimps.
Just discovered this morning, covered in this post. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3188383/posts
CDC sidebar note:
Genetic analysis of the virus indicates that it is closely related (97% identical) to variants of Ebola virus (species Zaire ebolavirus) identified earlier in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Gabon.
IIRC that 3% variance is about the same between humans and primates.
[Just posted this today, which might have got lost in main body of post.]
The 5th graph is the really interesting one.
It’s definitely drifted since we first encountered it in Zaire. Who knows what tricks it’s picked up since then.
You just know that from that huge entourage that more than a few will be in contact with pavement princesses and even some looking for a Stanley Anne.
It might have, but it was not lost on me, that's precisely where I got my info.
With these illegal alien kids being dumped in secret all over the country I am waiting for major disease outbreaks when school starts this fall. Undoubtedly some of these kids will end up in small schools without school nurses or other public health resources and the diseases and parasites they carry will spread like wildfire before being detected.
Sorry nully, sometimes when flipping thru tabs I tend to post a general reply, not directed to recipient.
“To be totally serious, when I saw it was considered an STD, I was really surprised. I dont think most folks know this.”
Because when you present to the ER with a regular STD don’t the techs and nurses always suit up in spacesuits?
No offense taken! I appreciate you spotlighting the post, I was all set to track it down in anticipation of someone ‘source please’-ing me!
Because when you present to the ER with a regular STD dont the techs and nurses always suit up in spacesuits?
I wouldn’t know - never had that experience!
Friends of mine work in the ER. They do not do such a thing.
But if you present with more than one strain you might be ‘discussed’...
Thanks for posting that info with the graphs. It confirms the CDC 3% variance of this strain with previous Zaire Ebola Virus. That “drift” is not insignificant IMO. May well account for increased hardiness and transmissability.
Might explain the separate repatriation of the two Americans. The Dr having received blood from an Ebola survivor, the other not. Isolate the one from the other and compare samples. That sort of lab work might reveal more than a field lab.
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
No. Droplet transmission. That is similar to airborne, but not quite the same.
I heard Rush say that it takes the average illegal immigrant 45 days to reach our border from their origin.
Ebola has an incubation period of at most 21 days. In most cases, it is closer to 8 days.
Even with someone who has a very long incubation before symptoms appear, there is little chance of them still being alive once they reach our border.
While Ebola could get here by plane, it is highly unlikely to get here via illegal immigrants. The other diseases, however, are a concern.
Funny thing about scabies. The mites can be picked up off a surface an infested person has been in contact with.
They aren't hard to get rid of, but who wants them!
The virus causes rhinitis in pigs, and they sneeze constantly, causing heavy contamination of their environment. An organism (like C. difficile, for example) that is spread by the host contaminating the environment is not traditionally called “airborne”.
Central Americans are mostly more primitive than that (the part of the population most likely to come here) they will go into a restroom and not use the toilet at all...floor, corner, sink...
Double ugh!!! Supposedly the itching is pretty intense and miserable. I understand some of the Border Patrol guys have gotten scabies from the illegals. At least scabies aren’t “life threatening”.
What you are missing is that illegals generally travel in groups, and meet up with other groups along the way. Disease does not have to travel all the way here in one host, it can be relayed. The sick person will infect at least some of the other people encountered. If an illegal becomes very ill, they try even harder to get here for medical treatment- meaning they would be unlikely to stop their travel until their illness forces them to stop.
The itching is very intense. Far worse than Poison Ivy, Oak, or Sumac. That’s what prompted me to peel open one of the blisters under the microscope—to see what was causing it, if I could.
Ebola is only communicable once the person becomes symptomatic. At that point, they become rapidly debilitated, rendering them unable to travel. In the hot climate of Mexico, without medical treatment, their condition would decline very rapidly.
I seem to recall reading that the coyotes—the human traffickers—have no patience with people who can’t keep up with the group, and routinely abandon people to die. For that reason, an Ebola victim would probably be abandoned at the first symptom. The coyotes certainly aren’t going to spend any time trying to care for that person. In that situation, the chance of a second person contracting Ebola is slim.
Also, one thing about highly lethal diseases is that they kill their victims so quickly that the disease has no chance to spread. So, assuming a group of illegals were to stop and try to care for an Ebola victim in their midst, they would all infect themselves and their journey would end there.
I disagree with you. It is true coyotes will abandon people at a sign of weakness, but others will stay back to help. I see it all the time that one will get sick and coyote dumps them, one or two people generally stay to help, often illegals traveling together are relatives. Ebola usually kills quickly without real medical care so that person would not live long and those that helped would continue on their way before knowing they were ill. There are also thousands of illegals that get here every year without help from coyotes, especially those that have been here before and were deported. They still travel in groups.
I think it is far less likely for Ebola to walk in our Southern border than for it to fly in, but to ignore the possibility is not realistic.
