    How lovely. :puke:

    One of every five refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for latent tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s Department of Health.

    Only 4 percent of the general population in the United States tested positive for latent tuberculosis in the most recent report provided by the Centers for Disease Control.

    The April 2016 edition of the Refugee Health Quarterly, published by the Minnesota Department of Health reports that:

    Minnesota had 150 cases of TB in 2015, compared to 147 cases in 2014 (a 2 percent increase). The most common risk factor for TB cases in Minnesota is being from a country where TB is common.

    TB screening is offered to all refugees during the domestic refugee health exam.

    In 2014, 22 percent of refugees screened tested positive for LTBI (latent tuberculosis infection).

    26 percent of all foreign born cases of tuberculosis in Minnesota were from people born in Somalia. Somalians almost exclusively enter the state through the refugee resettlement program.

    More than 70,000 refugees have been resettled in the United States annually for the past three decades by the federal government. It’s not just tuberculosis being brought in by these resettled refugees. Measles, whooping cough, diptheria, and other diseases that were on their way to eradication are also coming in across the borders of the United States.

    A recent outbreak of measles in Memphis, Tennessee, a center for refugee resettlement, began at a local mosque, as Breitbart News reported previously.

    The alarming public health report from Minnesota comes on the heels of news from the Centers for Disease Control that in 2015, the incidence of tuberculosis in the United States increased.

    “Data from 2015 show that the number of TB cases has increased (by 1.7 percent) nationally [in the United States] for the first time in 23 years, with a total of 9,563 TB cases reported,” the Minnesota Department of Health reports.

    As the Star Tribune, Minnesota’s largest daily newspaper, reports:

    The CDC is still trying to determine the reason for the uptick.

    The goal set by the CDC, in 1989, of eliminating TB by 2010 — defined as less than one case in a million people — remains elusive. Even if the trend of declining cases had continued, the United States would not have eliminated TB by the end of this century, the CDC said.

    “We are not yet certain why TB incidence has leveled off, but we do know it indicates the need for a new, expanded approach to TB elimination,” said Dr. Philip LoBue, director of the CDC’s Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, in an email.

    A dual approach is needed: continue to find and treat cases of disease and evaluate their contacts, as well as identify and evaluate other high-risk persons for latent TB infection, he said.

    There may be a positive correlation between the increase in the number of refugees resettled in the United States during this period and the sudden increase in the incidence of tuberculosis, a disease that many thought was on the path to eradication in the United States.

    As the Centers for Disease Control report:

    In 2014, a total of 66% of reported TB cases in the United States occurred among foreign-born persons. The case rate among foreign-born persons (15.4 cases per 100,000 persons) in 2014 was approximately 13 times higher than among U.S.-born persons (1.2 cases per 100,000 persons).

    “Today four states – California, New York, Texas and Florida – have more than half the nation’s active TB cases, though they have only a third of the country’s population. The four states have the highest numbers of foreign-born residents,” according to the Star Tribune.

    A person with latent tuberculosis is not infectious and does not have symptoms of the disease. A person with active tuberculosis is infectious and has symptoms of the disease.

    Ten percent of those with latent tuberculosis develop active tuberculosis if not treated,according to the World Health Organization.

    As the Star Tribune reports:

    TB is an airborne infectious disease caused by bacteria that spreads through the air, person to person, when someone coughs or sneezes. One in three people worldwide have latent TB, according to the World Health Organization. In the United States, up to 13 million people have been exposed to TB and could develop the disease.

    Every year, tuberculosis claims 1.5 million lives worldwide and 500 to 600 in this country.

    “Tuberculosis (TB) has surpassed HIV as the leading cause of death from infectious disease worldwide,” the Minnesota Department of Health reports.

    Tuberculosis is airborne and can be spread when a person active tuberculosis coughs, sneezes, or otherwise transmits the infection to a previously uninfected individual.

    Treatment for tuberculosis is long and expensive. If caught early, it typically takes about nine months for a person with active tuberculosis to improve to latent tuberculosis. Not everyone diagnosed with active tuberculosis, however, improves. Mortality rates for those with active tuberculosis are much higher than health professionals would like, even in the United States.

    According to the Star Tribune:

    Treating TB patients is labor intensive. To ensure that TB patients complete the course of drugs that lasts six months or longer, Directly Observed Therapy programs require a health care worker – not a family member – to watch patients with active TB swallow every dose. If a patient cannot get to a clinic, a health care worker goes to the person’s home. The worker monitors patients for side effects and other problems.

    Care also involves communication and cultural challenges. In Michigan, where the number of active TB cases rose from 105 in 2014 to 130 last year, the health department reaches out to Detroit’s large Arab and Bangladeshi populations. In other parts of the state, Burmese immigrants have different needs, said Peter Davidson, Michigan TB control manager.

    “Some local health departments have strong partnerships with translation services. Some rely on a less formal mechanism – a private physician or someone on staff at the hospital who speaks the language,” Davidson said.

    The cost of treating an active TB case that is susceptible or responsive to drugs averages $17,000, according to the CDC. Care of patients with drug-resistant TB, which can result from taking antibiotics prescribed before TB was properly diagnosed, costs many times more: $134,000 for a multidrug-resistant patient and $430,000 for an extensively drug-resistant one.

    Minnesota public health officials point to the high treatment rate of those refugees diagnosed with latent tuberculosis as a reason for optimism.

    “Eliminating TB in the U.S. will require increased attention to the diagnosis and treatment of latent TB infection (LTBI),” the April 2016 Refugee Health Quarterly reports.
    “Minnesota’s LTBI treatment completion rate for refugees who start treatment is one of the highest in the nation at 86 percent in 2013,” the report adds.

    An alternative public health policy–one that the United States used for decades in the latter part of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century–is to test immigrants and refugees for infectious disease before they are allowed into the country.

    In that earlier era, those who tested positive were sent home. Today, however, many are welcomed in and pose a risk of infecting the rest of the American population.​

    It was called Ellis Island. They'd be tested for disease, made sure their papers were in order and assigned a normal name. Then, given a hearty handshake and a "good luck".

    "UK next? Doc's warn AIDS TB and diseases eradicated generations ago brought in by migrants

    A DOCTOR working in German hospitals has revealed the horrifying chaos which could face the NHS if thousands of migrants from the Middle East manage to reach Britain - including the return of killer diseases eradicated generations ago.

    By Nick Gutteridge
    PUBLISHED: 07:58, Wed, Oct 28, 2015 | UPDATED: 08:31, Wed, Oct 28, 2015

    The female anaesthetist said the German health service has been completely overwhelmed by the influx of Muslim asylum-seekers who are REFUSING to be treated by female medics.

    In a furious outburst the experienced doctor said hospitals simply cannot cope because so many of the migrants require treatments for diseases long since eradicated in Europe.

    She also shockingly claimed migrant parents are abandoning their children at pharmacies across the country after being told that they have to pay a prescription charge for lifesaving drugs.

    She also claimed huge numbers of the asylum-seekers have Victorian diseases including TB, which they risk passing on to locals.

    Meanwhile, German authorities have been forced to post police at hospitals around the country after others got involved in angry clashes with medics over cultural differences.

    The doctor, who wished to remain anonymous, wrote to the press back home in the Czech Republic to express her shock at the "unsustainable" situation which she says is now affecting the medical care received by taxpaying Germans.

    She said: "Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.

    "Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse.

    "Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.

    "Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them.

    "If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash.

    "This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children.

    "They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: 'So, cure them here yourselves!' So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies."

    Her remarks provide a shocking warning about what could happen to our NHS if huge numbers of migrants were allowed to enter Britain.

    She said that the estimated 1.3million migrants who have entered the country are "completely unemployable" because they do not speak the language.

    And she added that the burden on the country's failing health service will only get worse because at least one in ten of the women arriving are pregnant.

    She said: "Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meets young men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don’t get it they throw a fit.

    "For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time."

    In one shocking incident medic also claimed how migrants STABBED the doctors who tried to save a tiny eight-month-old baby which had been "dragged across half of Europe for three months".

    She said: "The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany.

    "The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.

    "The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email.

    "What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife?

    "Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d go straight to jail and later to court. With these people – so far, nothing has happened."

    In a scathing attack she also savaged aid workers who turned out with 'Refugees Welcome' banners to provide food and clothes to migrants crossing the German border, accusing them of profiteering from the crisis.

    She said: "If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants.

    "Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help."

    However, A World Health Organization (WHO) spokesman refuted claims that German hospitals were struggling to cope with the number of refugees.

    He said: "No country which is receiving refugees has come to the WHO for assistance or to ask for backup. They have been telling us that their systems are coping with this and all is fine.

    "WHO is carefully monitoring the situation and is on hand to provide assistance when required."

    The WHO spokesman also said there were some concerns about cholera coming to the West from Iraqi and Syrian refugees, particularly because in 80 per cent of cases it does not show symptoms, but that in a normal, Western city, cholera would not be a big problem because cholera spreads through the water system and Western cities have safe supplies with sewage and drinking water pipes completely separate.
