Pushed into the background with the outbreak of Ebola in Texas, and possibly Ohio, and other locations, is the stunning increase of the deadly Enterovirus D68. The EV D68 is the illness that strikes with symptoms similar to polio, affecting children almost entirely. Between 1970 and 2006, this virus was considered exceedingly rare. In the 36 year study, only 26 cases had been reported in the United States, an average of just under one case per year. In 2014, the number of cases has reached 691. What has happened to cause an increase of more than 960% in this rare and potentially deadly pathogen? Well, let’s see. Barack Obama has allowed untold numbers of illegal immigrant children into our country, our cities and towns, our communities, and our schools. Most are from Central America, an area where such diseases are relatively common. The locations of these children have been kept from the American public. How many children? Thousands and tens of thousands. Where are there clusters of EV D68 cases? Kansas City. Chicago. Areas where significant numbers if illegal immigrant children have been moved. What has the CDC to say in the matter?
“There is no evidence that unaccompanied children brought EV-D68 into the United States, we are not aware of any of these children testing positive for the virus”
The wording would lead one to assume that these many tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children were tested for EV D68. Which is, of course, not the case. It also might cause one to believe that the CDC has the slightest idea what diseases these illegal immigrants brought in with them. Such as drug-resistant tuberculosis. For which the CDC remained ominously silent. While the medical staffs of the holding facilities were forced to be so. The CDC, in reality, has no real idea what pathogens are crossing our borders, even if what they do know paints a grim and dangerous picture.
