Ebola outbreak fuels concerns over health risks along US-Mexico border

by Cowboy Byte

August 6, 2014



The 12 Billion Obama is sending to Africa could have surely helped secure the border here in the United States; just saying…..
Check it out:

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is fueling concerns that the porous U.S.-Mexico border poses a growing health risk, with statistics showing dozens of people from the epicenter of the Ebola scare illegally entered the U.S. — or tried to — this year alone.
 

Breitbart.com on Monday published a Customs and Border Protection document breaking down where illegal immigrants who turn themselves in or are caught by immigration authorities are coming from. The statistics reportedly showed they are traveling from more than 75 different countries.

Among them, between January and July of this year, at least 71 reportedly arrived from the three West African nations hit with the current Ebola outbreak.

Seriously folks, I'm waiting to hear that the South American version of the ebola virus hits.  Ebola is carried by primates, and African "bush meat", ala monkey, lemur, chimp, gorilla or any other African bush meat source is what has contributed to the spread of this all over Africa and is also a prime candidate for importing it directly into the UK and Europe. 

We heard today that one of the strains in Africa is a new mutation of the virus that has never been seen before.  That means existing ebola protocols and treatments likely will not work.   How long can it be until we see this same kind of virus make its way into the US via the border through illegals infected with a new South American strain??  The incubation period is three weeks, and in the initial stages ebola resembles flu, and is virulently contagious.

The death toll in Africa is approaching 1,000 and the infections continue to mount.  Obama talked about sending "first responders".  He's late to the party because the real first responders are dying like flies in Africa while he holds news conferences in DC.

This will continue until (if) the infection finally burns itself out in six months or so, but there is no telling how many deaths that will cause because nobody is taking the lead in any serious attempt to head this off.

All it takes is one infected person on a crowded plane flying in to South or Central America who isn't noticed. Say someone who flies in and then drops off the map to run the border.

I'm minded of the opening chapters of The Stand here.

As for new variants - ask anyone who served in Gitmo. The inmates were (and are) highly infectious to the guards because they were carrying different strains of the various diseases from what North America is used to. Something that doesn't bother them in the slightest is dangerous to lethal to the guards. They knew this. Used to throw shit or blood on the guards and hope they'd get infected. Any guard that became ill from this got a free isolation trip to Atlanta.

Sometimes they really don't pay you Navy pukes enough.  :whistle:
