    Nearly 20 States Now Reporting Enterovirus D68 Outbreak

    Cases of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) are exploding all across the country with nearly 20 states reporting dozens of cases. The outbreaks are growing so quickly that the Centers for Disease Control are lagging far behind announced cases.

    On Wednesday the Washington Post reported that 16 states had reported cases of the respiratory illness. But only hours later, New Jersey also announced it had found some cases quickly bringing that number up to 17. Then Minnesota became the 18th state later that same day.

    The outbreak has been growing since at least mid-August.

    The CDC confirms that children are most susceptible to D68 because their immune systems are not yet developed enough to beat the virus.

    Also, the CDC says children with asthma seem to have a higher risk for severe respiratory illness.

    There are currently no vaccines for D68 and doctors suggest that those at risk keep their hands clean, avoid touching their faces, avoid kissing and hugging, and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as counters, tables, and even toys.

    So far, cases of D68 have been seen in Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

    With all the people that fly in from the east, I'm sure Reno and Vegas will be reporting in soon!

    Diseased illegals streaming over the borders. Processed, then shipped off to various parts of the U.S.

    What could go wrong?

    Yeah, Drudge had an old story and a breaking story a week ago. The first was about illegals being shipped to towns in the north east, then a month later, stories about TB infections popping up in those towns in the north east and officials "had no idea where it came from"! :facepalm:

    It sounds like children in the 4 to 6 year old age range are most susceptible to this virus, but the vast majority should be able to kick it without too much trouble. Anyone who has preexisting pulmonary issues should be more vigilant about seeking treatment early.

    None of this, however, makes it any easier to understand why our federal government is using the taxpayers' money and resources to collect illegals at the border and distribute them all throughout the country, diseases and all. WTF?

    If they are not going to send all of them back they should at least get the sick ones out.
    Our governor is quietly shipping them here and when people complain he calls the town "hostile"
    He also doesn't like the terms Illegal or Undocumented. He has made up a name for them. New Americans. No bullshit !
