Officials in Fort Bend County are taking action to ensure a case of active tuberculosis does not spread to others at Sugar Land's Kempner High School, Fort Bend ISD said in a letter to parents. "Because significant exposure to TB is required in order to develop an infection, and based on the level of interaction with the individual, the health department has identified a small group of students and staff who will require testing," the letter states. Testing is conducted through the Fort Bend County Health and Human Services Department at no cost to the individuals, said Yaneth Calderon, spokeswoman for the department. Any required treatment will also be conducted through the health department, unless patients choose to use their private providers.

Gee, can't imagine why but do the fleas speak Spanish?
Mostly Asians and Latins.
Been some serious white flight from that area in the past decade.
Diversity is our strength!
Knobs on standard shift consoles!,
“-————making a comeback in Texas for reasons researchers don’t know.”
Where did they get these “researchers”-——Somalia?
More than just flea-bite-us..
Epidemic typhus has also been called camp fever, jail fever, and war fever, names that suggest overcrowding, underwashing, and lowered standards of living. It is caused by the bacterium Rickettsia prowazekii and is conveyed from person to person by the body louse, Pediculus humanus humanus.
Enjoy the diversity and diseases of 3rd world sh#thole countries...we don’t need borders.
WOAH! Wrong post!
Which form of TB? If it’s MDR or XDR, that’s of even more concern.
TB outbreaks happen every couple of years in our local schools. the school system and local media publish just enough information so people will go get tested, but play hush-hush with details of how and who started the outbreaks, so you know damn good and well they’re deliberately covering up for the diseased illegal aliens that imported the diseases ...
Same song, different verse at my years old tagline.
I’m sitting here laughing at the mis-information and clear deceit in these declarations. Fort Bend County and particularly SugarLand are run by realtors and promoters. They gerrymander school districts to promote and pump up particular subdivisions. They whitewash all negative press. I called it Stepford on the Brazos when we lived there.
1. Fort Bend ISD said in a letter to parents. “Because significant exposure to TB is required in order to develop an infection, and based on the level of interaction with the individual, the health department has identified a small group of students and staff who will require testing,” the letter states. I’m dubious of this statement. I had employees exposed to TB on a flight from W. Africa. The majority tested positive. The employees were in the front of the plane and the carrier was in the back. Kudos to CDC for getting on top of the exposure and carrier.
2. “making a comeback in Texas for reasons researchers don’t know” This is laughable and pitiful at the same time. It comes from the same places lice and scabies come from. Unclean living conditions.
