As part of the Global North, Europeans have been living in first-world comfort since the continent was rebuilt from the ashes following the end of World War II. But a massive new influx of migrants and refugees from third-world countries in the war-torn Middle East and North Africa are reigniting outbreaks of contagious diseases that had been long eradicated from the continent.
As reported by RT.com, unvaccinated migrants have brought diphtheria to Denmark, stunning health officials and leaving the government scrambling to contain the outbreak.
“The infection can be very dangerous if one isn’t vaccinated against it. The dangerous type is very rare and we last saw it in Denmark in 1998,” Kurt Fuursted, spokesperson for the Danish State Serum Institute (SSI) told Metroxpress in reference to the likely return of the disease, which was last seen in the country 20 years ago.
“There is no doubt that infectious diseases are coming in with the refugees that we aren’t used to. There have been discussions on whether all refugees who come to Denmark should be screened,” Fuursted added.
“Tighten the screws“
“Refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants should be vaccinated without unnecessary delay according to the immunization schedule of the country in which they intend to stay for more than a week,” says a joint WHO-UNHCR-UNICEF guidance on general principles regarding vaccination of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants in Europe, RT.com noted. Despite this recommendation, and the fact that the German government pushes vaccines for the children of its native citizens, refugees are being allowed into the country without receiving any vaccinations.
Published on Nov. 23, the guidance further urges nations to provide refugees and migrants with access to a “full vaccination schedule.”
RT.com noted further:
The immigration officials and the Danish Health and Medicines Authority, a supreme healthcare authority in Denmark, are expected to review screening policy, according to Health Minister Sophie Lunde.
In recent months, Denmark has begun to tighten the screws in an effort to curb the refugee influx. [The] Danish Parliament [voted recently] on a bill proposing to strip refugees of valuables, including cash and jewelry, to cover the costs the country bears in connection with their stay. It would allow authorities to claim individual items valued at more than 10,000 kroner (US$1,450).
In Danish communities of Thisted, Sonderborg and Haderslev, local nightclub owners have begun to introduce “language controls” – that is, they are turning away anyone who does not speak Danish, German or English.
According to Denmark’s immigration agency, about 18,000 refugees and migrants were looking for asylum last year – far from the 163,000 seeking asylum in neighboring Sweden.
Some see similar problems coming to the U.S. under the Obama White House’s generous refugee resettlement and immigration programs.
Diseased migrants already in the U.S.
The federal government’s policies of allowing the mass migration of infectious disease-carrying people into the United States while transporting them to America’s largest cities is a “perfect blueprint” for seeding a deadly pandemic. Right now, we are witnessing the engineering of a public health and humanitarian disaster optimized for rapid disease transmission that puts all Americans at risk.
At the time, Adams noted that about 30,000 illegal aliens were flooding into Texas alone on any given day, most from Central and South America, as well as Mexico.
“Virtually none of these immigrants are being properly screened for infectious disease, nor vaccinated. (Not that I’m saying vaccines are the cure, but this is what the government claims all Americans should be doing to their own children, you see. The hypocrisy is obscene…),” he wrote.
Again, at the time, some migrants and immigrants had already been found to have carried in infectious diseases – some of them incurable, Adams noted, including “swine flu, AIDS, influenza, scabies, lice and other diseases that are made worse by the highly unsanitary conditions in which these immigrants are living during their travels.”
Obama’s generous (and, according to federal courts unconstitutional) immigration policies mean even more disease-carrying immigrants will be heading into the country in the months ahead.
