  • Where Did This Virus Come From?

    From the recent influx of illegal Immigrants?

    http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news...cord/15312365/

    Medical officials admitted a record number of children to a local hospital over the weekend because of what they believe to be a rare respiratory virus spreading throughout the country.

    Although there's been no confirmed cases of the enterovirus at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, officials admitted 540 patients Friday, said Dr. Derek Wheeler, associate chief of staff at the hospital.

    This particular type of enterovirus EV-D68 is uncommon, but not new. It was first identified in the 1960s.

    "I suspect that it's something that hasn't been around for a while and so there's a lot of people susceptible to it," Wheeler said.

    My bad. I probably caused it.

    I caught this mean cold when I was in Germany in July, and had a devil of a time getting rid of it.

        You never know. I had a bad respiratory infection that I was trying to get over when I came back. I thought it was over, then it kind of came back. I even went to the doctor to have a chest X-Ray. I am still coughing a little bit although I feel OK.

        I could have spread it in the airports and on the planes.

              And how do you know the virus was brought by "illegal" immigrants? From the link in the post that you yourself quoted, I see that it was already known in California in 1962. If anything, it probably came from somewhere in the US. If it did come from a foreign country, the carrier could just as easily have been a tourist returning to America or a "legal" immigrant. What's with jumping to this particular conclusion?

                      even if there is, correlation does not equal causation.

                        Yes that is true. Now we have TB cases in Lynn, Mass. Where there has been an influx of Latino immigrants of late.

                          It was a question. And the fact is we are letting illegal Immigrants into this country who do have disease. Like with this latest influx of "children." Kids from countries with little or no immunization.

                            I read through both articles seer and you wen't pretty quickly to a conclusion that this was caused by illegal immigrant children. Unfortunately there's no mention of anything like that so you're assuming a causation. Especially in this quote you're blatantly assigning blame without evidence.

                            Even if it should turn out on chance that you're right, this is not a good thing to do.

                              Yeah it was a question in your OP. In your second post you had apparently decided that this was caused by "illegal immigrant children".
