A female employee at Fremont Middle School in Las Vegas died of tuberculosis in mid-July after potentially exposing more than 100 people to the highly contagious disease, school and public health officials said Monday. Ann Schiller, the schools principal, sent a phone message to parents on July 11 saying that an individual at our school had recently been diagnosed with an active case of tuberculosis. It said that public health officials would contact families within the next few days if their kids needed to be tested. Lynn Row, the chief nurse for the Clark County School District, said she could not provide the victims name, title or even confirm that she worked at the school at 1100 E. St. Louis Ave., near Maryland Parkway.

PREDICTION: Illegal alien. Media denials in 3.. 2.. 1...
Probably an illegal alien working in the school cafeteria...
Illegal immigrants bringing disease into the schools.
Very high probability, yes.
I can remember when we had to have health cards to work around food in any manner. Also had to have a blood test to get married so you didn’t pass on a std to your spouse.
The most Mexican part of San Fran is the Mission District.
There, the per-capita incidence of TB is exactly the same as in Mexico.
Can anyone guess WHY..?
It’s so mysterious......
Ain’t Sanctuary Cities wonderful?
The unnamed illegal died doing a job Americans won’t do. /s
>>an individual at our school had recently been diagnosed with an active case of tuberculosis.
Dead from it is more serious than just diagnosed with it.
But cover it up. NEA will stand with covering up such things.
HOPPA rules.... and other nonsense
You would like to think the parents would be up in arms about this. But if it’s a liberal district, they’ll probably be quiet.
Protecting the public health is another reason why immigration should be orderly and applicants screened thoroughly before admission.
Yep or an ill foreign national that went undetected. Or was it something possibly that has been weaponize by bad guys? They've been talking about this for a long time.
And one hundred others have been possibly exposed?
Outrageous. There is no excuse for such negligence in this day and age.
Vegas is a sanctuary city?
Must be all the greedy hotel owners that use them as low wage slaves.
One of the least covered aspects of the illegal alien invasion is the rise or appearance of diseases long thought eliminated from the US. We are dealing with Third World health problems in the US.
—who most likely voted the straight Dem ticket-—
“...long thought eliminated...”
It’s more a case of “almost entirely eliminated”.
TB is contagious,but not “highly contagious” as the article says.
