...hundreds of children across the country have shown up at hospitals unable to move their arms or legs. Dozens of kids have become paralyzed in the past few months alone.
They suffer from a mysterious illness that continues to alarm and puzzle scientists. This kind of sudden and devastating paralysis hasnt been widespread since the days of polio. Lucian, one of the diseases earliest victims, set off a hunt among doctors to discover its cause.
Comment on article:
This isn't a mystery. EV D-68 was almost unheard of in the United States prior to 2014. It was first seen in the US in 1962, and there had never been an outbreak in more than one state. Only about 26 cases recorded in American history. Then in 2014, it appeared in 40 states almost simultaneously. What happened in 2014? Well, Obama welcomed 300,000 child immigrants from Central America and his Department of Homeland Security shipped them to all 50 states. EV D-68 is very common in Central America. Anyone can research these facts for themselves. Open borders have consequences.

Outrageous. The crime is bad enough, I wish Trump would talk more about all the diseases we are opening ourselves up to with open borders.
This country virtually asks for the influx of population killing disease. It allows millions of illegals, even legal immigrants and refugees to forego medical screening except for the most archaic things (like TB xrays, etc.)
They have given a pass/pardon to immigrants with aids, terminal health issues and have turned their eyes away from even the most vicious, insidious disease coming from the south and the rest of the third, fourth and fifth world.
Furthermore, they have their BS watchdog - the Centers for Disease Control - out there spreading the party line “We think this mosquito, this fish, this bird, this whatever, anything except these effing unscreened immigrants are the problem.”
Frankly, I don’t believe a damned thing the CDC says or does. This was pretty much evidenced to me when that director said that you couldn’t get Ebola by non-contact (i.e, coughing or sneezing) — a blatant lie he was forced to admit on TV.....
Do people in LA know how to read? Why is there no outrage?
I remember taking sugar cubes with the polio vaccine circa 1960. Long lines at the schools where entire families went to get the vaccine free.
Wow. I was looking for a new-fangled vaccine angle (like they were all given a rapidly-produced untested vaccine for some perceived threat) but this is worse...
President Obola at work?
Googled and found this (http://www.webmd.com/children/enterovirus68-infection)
How It Spreads:
You can catch this virus the same way you would catch the common cold: by having close contact with someone who's infected -- especially if that person coughs or sneezes on you -- or by touching a contaminated surface.
Great. How many more "immigrants" have arrived carrying God-knows-what?
This is the result of the flood of illegal immigrants into America.
If this country puts Hillary into the White House, then it deserves whatever happens to it.
Turd world diseases brought in by turd world people
The liberals are blind to consequences it’s all about feel good mode so much for self pity.
Remember, it was “open boarders” that killed the Native American populations. When the plains Indians would not play nice so we could infect them, we destroyed their #1 food source, the buffalo.
The laws of unintended consequence by a people searching for homes and freedom from tyrannical governments.
Doesn’t mean those with evil intent (globalists/elitists/demagogues/religious radicals/fascists/communists/ etc) can’t read and try to use the past against the future. After all, if there were no human race (except for global warmers) all would be right with the world!
It’s hitting some adults around here, as well.
And how many of these immigrants with infected family members work in the food service industry, ie: farm, restaurants, deli, grocery stores (dairy, meat, produce), hospitals and schools?
What could go wrong?
Virus contagion simulator:
Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 November 11, 1938), better known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever.
She was presumed to have infected 51 people, three of whom died, over the course of her career as a cook.
She was twice forcibly isolated by public health authorities and died after a total of nearly three decades in isolation.
Did you mean “open borders”?
Actually, this has nothing to do with immigration. But what it means is still unsettling.
EV D-68 has been in the US for decades. It was a cold so mild that it barely created any symptoms, so was generally ignored.
There are 71 human enterovirus serotypes, of these, just a few were believed to cause human polio. The rest, including EV D-68 were believed to be genetically too far away to cause the disease.
Apparently they were mistaken. Which likely means that “polio” will be with us for a long time, even if it is a different virus.
