Officials say the newly identified public exposure includes the following locations and times as stated in the article.
And here I thought all those kooky doctors saying that vaccinations work, we’re just that! Kooks!!! And all those unbelievably smart actors and actresses who followed the advice of a con artist from the UK who has since been locked up in prison and lost his right to practice medicine because he was a fraud.... You know, the “Doctor” who could prove that vaccinations were a government, world-wide conspiracy to cause autism? And the rubes fell for it (and unfortunately, still do). Well, they must have been right, right?
When you welcome the Third World citizens, you become a Third World country. PC can be the death of your children in so many ways. Blame Obama and the Democrat Party for all this contagious disease infecting us..
Quartering —by police escort and jets — of incurable
infectious diseases by the THOUSANDS is ongoing
is it because they are Nobel Prize physicists and doctors?
No. They are imported Islamic terrorists with South
American passports on the fast track.
And ... it has been paid for by the GOP and Ryan.
It is thanks to vaccinations that we will not have a nationwide epidemic from this. Strongly suspect that it is white liberals and illegal immigrant most affected.
Anyone who would refuse to vaccinate their children because of some money-grubbing “doctor” who conducted unethical “research” and then published a fake study deserves to have their kids taken away.
A series of two measles shots is almost 100% protective.
I had a measles shot when I was in college 30 years ago, and a recent blood test showed that I am immune. I do not ever need to get a second measles vaccine!
Several cases have been spotted.
Now don't jump to conclusions. The school mentioned is only 84% Hispanic. And only 97% of the students qualify for free lunch.
There is another disease threatening our nation, brought here by refuges from he Middle East. It is Cutaneous leishmaniasis, a flesh eating disease caused by a parasite in the blood stream transmitted through sand fly bites. The disease can result in horrible open sores as well as disfiguring skin lesions, nodules or papules. If this disease can be hosted by other insect carriers, like fleas, ticks, or, God help us, mosquitoes, we will be spending billions to counter that menace.
Could not agree more!
Nice...I only live about 50 miles from Ground Xero. Damned illegal trash!
Those damn Disney employees are at it again!
Typically, multi-host parasites take advantage of specific host biologies in order to propagate. That means that the chance of leish being spread by vectors unrelated to sand flies is quite low.
Are there close relatives of sand flies in the US, or any US species of sand fly, that have similar biting behaviors? Those are the insects I would look at, in trying to determine whether leish could spread endemically in the US.
The CDC is on the job and will soon debunk any connection of these diseases to third world immigrants.
Just read from the CDC that there were 667 reported cases of measles in the US in 2014. That is a huge jump from prior years.
I am happy that they listed the stores , restaurants , and Churches affected , along with the dates and time of possible exposure .
Obviously , they are trying to provide as much information as humanly possible , and are trying to stay ahead of the infection.
Because the leishmaniasis is not usually found in temperate areas, we really have no data to go on as to whether the a ‘regular’ flea, a mosquito, or one of our tick species could pass it from one mammal to the next. Normally in the sand flea, the protozoans divide and increase in numbers, to be transmitted when the sand flea later bites the next mammal. It is possible that another insect may pass along infected blood through a bite, even if they did not serve as incubators for the organism.
People who have visited one of those places and think they may have been exposed can get a measles vaccine. It takes about 2 weeks for IgM levels to increase, and the incubation period of measles is sometimes longer (range: 7 to 21 days). So it can be possible to stave off the disease by getting vaccinated right away.
Of course, people who have already been vaccinated do not need to worry. The vaccine is over 99% effective.
A very small child who is too young to be vaccinated is at the most risk of getting the disease.
