Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading as Migrants Settle In

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis.

The man, who was sheltered at a church in Bünsdorf between January and May 2017, was in frequent contact with the children, some as young as three, who were attending a day care center at the facility. He was admitted to a hospital in Rendsburg in June and subsequently diagnosed with tuberculosis — a disease which only recently has reentered the German consciousness.

Local health authorities say that in addition to the children, parents and teachers as well as parishioners are also being tested for the disease, which can develop months or even years after exposure. It remains unclear if the man received the required medical exams when he first arrived in Germany, or if he is one of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have slipped through the cracks.

    I’m sure The Destroyers In Charge are quite shocked at this news.

      Actually, reminds me of a story about Mao talking about how he did not mind a nuclear war as it would make it easier to control the remaining population that had survived. I presume these leaders have similar ways of thinking too. Their genocidal ways are a dead give away.

        They’re not on our side.

    Are they talking about drug resistant tuberculosis, MRSA, polio, drug resistant gonorrhea, measles, all of which has been reported in high levels in “refugees”, or just infectious Mohammadism?

      The last one is more deadly than all the other ones you listed combined!

    Not clear on the bad news here.

    Back in ye olden days when immigration was less enlightened than now, a health check for disease was required for admittance.

    In fact, Ellis Island was a major screener for communicable illness, and around 2 percent of wanna-be immigrants were sent home.

      There are too many migrants to the USA for Ellis Island to handle the numbers.

      Perhaps Canada can rent Ellesmere Island to the USA for this purpose? Tell them that is the typical weather throughout the USA during the winter and see if they still want to migrate? 😉

      And perhaps the EU could rent Chernobyl from the Ukraine for the same purpose?
