MEXICO CITY Mexico is facing a sort of perfect storm of floods that breed mosquitoes, prompting a big increase in the number of hemorrhagic dengue cases, the country's top epidemiological official said Wednesday.

The disease's Type 2 strain, which makes people who have already had the Type 1 variant more vulnerable to developing the hemorrhagic form, is now in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz and moving north toward the region on the U.S. border.

How long until they bring it to America? Infectious disease control is one reason the U.S. used to monitor immigration.

“How long until they bring it to America? Infectious disease control is one reason the U.S. used to monitor immigration.”

It is already showing up in Florida. Add that to the list of diseases for which illegal immigrants are the primary vector: whooping cough, tuberculosis, small pox, polio etc., etc., etc. All diseases that were effectively eradicated in this country when we controlled our borders.

hemorrhagic fever was found in the local Aztec indian populations by Cortez, and several of his men died from it. It was also a disease the early colonists noted in the local Ohio Valley area indian tribes (and wiped quite a few out). You’d think by now, they’d have a vaccine against this virus, but then again, it’s a virus and those are always toughies.

Here is a PDF for the disease protocols, including symptoms and warnings such as not touching dead bodies: http://www.kdheks.gov/epi/download/Disease_Protocols/Disease_Protocols_With_Forms/Viral_Hemorrhagic_Fevers_Guideline.pdf

And why is that? The scumbags didn’t when they were exporting drugs into the U.S. Let them die with the current leadership of Mexico and we will, in our “0wn” time help those who will attempt to destroy the U.S....NOT
