    U.S. Border Patrol agents said they discovered a man among hundreds of migrants detained in New Mexico who was diagnosed with having a flesh-eating bacteria.
    The man was taken to the hospital after telling an agent that he had a growing rash on his leg.
    And officials said in a statement Jan. 25 the unidentified migrant will need extensive treatment.
    He was detained at the Lordsburg, New Mexico, Border Patrol station, CBS4 reported, adding that he was from Central America.
    A statement from border patrol officials said the unidentified migrant will require extensive medical treatment but Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Antunez said he could not provide more details or the man’s condition, reported The Associated Press.
    Flesh-eating bacteria is a rare condition called necrotizing fasciitis that spreads quickly and can be fatal.

(Mario Tama/Getty Images) The bacteria usually gets into the body through a minor cut or scrape and can cause a serious infection that can destroy muscle, skin and other tissue.
    Sometimes surgery is needed to remove the infected area.
    It’s rare for the infection to spread to other people.
    On the same day, KFOX reported that 300 migrants crossed illegally into southern New Mexico border.
    A group of 306 migrants crossing illegally were apprehended by agents working out of the Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base at the Antelope Wells Port of Entry.
    The majority of the group, which were from Central America, were taken to the Lordsburg Border Patrol station for more processing, the report said.
    The agents at the Lordsburg station learned about the man with the growing rash on his leg.
    It’s the 26th group consisting of more than 100 people since the start of the fiscal year, said the agency.
    The sparsely populated desert area has experienced a significant influx of large migrant groups recently. Nearly 10,000 migrants have been detained at New Mexico’s three Border Patrol stations since Oct. 1, officials said. There were 12,800 detentions at the three stations from October 2017 through September 2018.
    Necrotizing Fasciitis

    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), necrotizing fasciitis is a rare infection that spreads quickly in the body and is potentially fatal.
    “Accurate diagnosis, rapid antibiotic treatment, and prompt surgery are important to stopping this infection,” said the agency.
    The bacteria can enter the body via cuts, scrapes, insect bites, burns, puncture wounds, and surgical wounds.
    Also, the National Organization for Rare Diseases says that such “infections can be sudden, vicious, and fast-spreading” and if it progresses, “the patient will continue to have a very high fever (over 104 degrees Fahrenheit) or may become hypothermic (low temperature) and become dehydrated.”
    Meanwhile, it added, the pain in the infected area is continual and “piercing,” said the organization. “As the infection progresses, the affected area will continue to swell, become purple or mottled (blotches of black, purple, and red), and may be accompanied by a rash of blisters and this is a sign of skin necrosis,” it says.
    In July 2018, USA Today reported that flesh-eating bacteria killed one person and infected nine people alone in Virginia.
    “If they’re healthy, if they know they have a cut, wash it with soap and water and if they are immunocompromised, do not go into the water if you have a cut or sore. Be very careful because you are at risk. If you do have the symptoms, seek care right away. Especially if you have a weakened immune system,” Nancy Lemis, an epidemiologist for the Virginia Department of Health, told the newspaper.
    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    'Flesh-Eating Bacteria' FAQ

    By Kathleen Doheny


    FROM THE WEBMD ARCHIVESBy Kathleen Doheny
    WebMD Health News

    Aug. 1, 2014 -- Summer is prime season for a bacteria called Vibrio vulnificus -- also known as “flesh-eating” bacteria -- to thrive, especially in warm Gulf Coast waters. Swimmers and those who eat seafood should be careful to avoid infection from this potentially fatal bacteria.

    Earlier this summer, Florida health officials issued a reminder that the bacteria thrives not just in Florida but in other coastal states surrounded by warm saltwater.

    While infection with the bacteria is a rare cause of disease, taking simple precautions can minimize the risk and decrease the chances of the bacteria becoming ''flesh-eating." That's especially true when the bacteria is thriving -- from May through October.

    WebMD turned to public health experts to shed more light on these bacteria and to get advice on how to stay healthy.

    Where is Vibrio vulnificus found?

    The bacteria thrive in warm saltwater. Most cases of infection happen in the Gulf Coast region, including Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, the CDC says.

    "The bacteria thrive in warm water, so concentrations of the bacteria are higher during the summer months," says Carina Blackmore, PhD, Florida's acting state epidemiologist.

    How do you get it?

    Eating uncooked seafood can bring on the infection. Also, if a skin injury is exposed to the bacteria, the wound can become infected.

    The bacteria can also infect the blood, especially if someone has chronic liverdisease or other medical problems that compromise their immune system. This type of infection can become severe and even fatal. Bloodstream infections with V. vulnificus are lethal in half of those affected, the CDC says.


    There is no evidence the bacteria is transmitted from person to person, the CDC says.

    How common is it?

    In the U.S., about 95 cases occur each year, according to the CDC, although only half of those are confirmed by culturing the blood, the stool, or a wound. Of those, about 85 patients need to be in the hospital; about 35 die.

    In Florida, 11 cases have been reported in 2014, says Sheri Hutchinson, a spokeswoman with the Florida Department of Health, with two deaths as of July 25. In 2013, 41 cases were reported, with 11 deaths.

    Who is most at risk, and how can people minimize the risk?

    Those who eat raw seafood and those who have open wounds and go into warm saltwater risk infection are at risk.

    "People with underlying health problems and people who are immune-compromised, especially those with chronic liver disease, are at higher risk," Blackmore says.
    Don't go into the water if you have broken skin or open wounds.

    Don't eat raw shellfish, especially oysters. Refrigerate leftover fish promptly.

    What are typical symptoms?

    Someone who eats seafood infected with the bacteria may have vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

    An infected wound can become ulcerated -- redden, ooze pus, streak with red lines, or grow in size -- and the skin can break down.

    Someone with a compromised immune system may experience fever, chills, very low blood pressure associated with shock, and blistering skin lesions.

    Seek medical help right away if you notice these symptoms, Blackmore says.

    It's been called a ''flesh-eating'' bacteria -- is that true?

    "In vulnerable patients with wound infections, the bacteria can create severe tissue damage and skin breakdown -- necrotizing fasciitis -- at the wound site," Blackmore says. While this is often referred to as ''flesh-eating bacteria," Blackmore says, medical experts consider it a misnomer. ''The bacteria don't actually consume the flesh. The bacteria have toxins that are destroying the cells in the tissue. The cells end up dying from the toxin exposure."

    How is it diagnosed, and what is the treatment?

    Besides observing symptoms, doctors can test the blood, the wound, or the stool to confirm the diagnosis.

    Patients receive antibiotics. The length of treatment and the dose vary by the type of antibiotic used. Some regimens are up to 14 days.

    The infected wound is treated, and surgeons may be needed to clean the wound and remove dead tissue. Nurses may apply special bandages to care for the wound.

    "Healthy people typically fully recover from an infection," Blackmore says. "Persons with milder infections can recover within a few days. People with underlying illnesses who have more severe forms of the disease have a more extended recovery period."

    LORDSBURG, N.M. (KDBC) - A man who was in Border Patrol custody had to be treated for a flesh-eating bacteria.
    The migrant who was already in custody at the Lordsburg, N.M. Border Patrol station told an agent Thursday about a growing rash he had.
    He was taken to a medical facility for evaluation. Officials said hospital staff diagnosed him with a flesh-eating bacteria. They said he needed more extensive treatment.

    So dangerous. I hope the man will live and be okay but this invasion must end. There are so many dangers to our citizens in having porous borders. Who knows what is out there that can cross within people to hurt, kill or maim large numbers.

    US Quarantines Over 2,200 Migrants Amid "Unprecedented" Disease Outbreaks



    "We are seeing migrants arrive with illnesses and medical conditions in unprecedented numbers"

    As of March 7, US immigration officials have quarantined at least 2,287 migrants carrying everything from mumps to chickenpox, according to Reuters, citing an ICE official who spoke on condition of anonymity.


    ICE health officials have been notified of 236 confirmed or probable cases of mumps among detainees in 51 facilities in the past 12 months, compared to no cases detected between January 2016 and February 2018. Last year, 423 detainees were determined to have influenza and 461 to have chicken pox. All three diseases are largely preventable by vaccine. -Reuters
    "When there is just one person who is sick, everybody pays," said 19-year-old Christian Mejia, who was put on lockdown in rural Louisiana's Pine Prairie immigration detention center along with hundreds of other detainees. According to internal emails reviewed by Reuters, outbreaks such as the one in Louisiana are difficult to manage, as immigrant detainees are often shuttled around the country, and many diseases don't necessarily show symptoms during the contagious phase.
    Since January, the 1,094-bed Pine Prairie facility has had 18 detainees with confirmed or probable cases of mumps compared to no cases in 2018, according to ICE. As of mid-February, 288 people were under quarantine at Pine Prairie. Mejia said his quarantine ended on Feb. 25. -Reuters
    Disturbingly, emails reveal that the warden at Pine Prairie decided not to quarantine 40 new arrivals from Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility in Mississippi, despite concerns raised by the medical staff. Warden Indalecio Ramos - who referred Reuters' outbreak-related questions to ICE and the GEO Group, which owns the facility - said in a Feb. 7 email that quarantining detainees would prevent them from attending their immigration court hearings.
    Two weeks later, ICE requested that Pine Prairie medical staff clear a quarantined detainee for travel, referring to him as a "high profile removal scheduled for deport." Warden Ramos wrote in an email later that day that medical staff wanted to exclude the detainee from transfer, however "ICE wants him to travel out of the country anyway ... Please ensure he leaves."

    An ICE spokesman said that people who have been exposed to diseases but are asymptomatic can travel, while anyone known to be contagious cannot.
    On Feb. 28, ten Democratic members of Congress sent ICE acting director Ronald Vitiello to inquire about viral disease outbreaks at immigration detention centers in Texas, Arizona and Colorado. Pine Prairie outbreak was not mentioned.
    Pablo Paez, a spokesman for The GEO Group, the private prison operator that runs Pine Prairie under government contract, said its medical professionals follow standards set by ICE and health authorities. He said medical care provided to detainees allows the company “to detect, treat and follow appropriate medical protocols to manage an infectious outbreak.” -Reuters
    Of note, while last year's high-profile migrant caravans accounted for a fraction of overall border crossings, in November Fox News reported that out of 6,000 migrants residing in Tijuana, more than 1/3 of them were being treated for health-related issues, including hepatitis, infections, three cases of tuberculosis and four cases of chickenpox.
    The first cases at Pine Prairie were detected in January in four migrants who had been recently transferred from the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility in Mississippi, according to internal emails.
    Tallahatchie, run by private detention company CoreCivic, has had five confirmed cases of mumps and 18 cases of chicken pox since January, according to company spokeswoman Amanda Gilchrist. She said no one who was diagnosed was transferred out of the facility while the disease was active.
    Tallahatchie houses hundreds of migrants recently apprehended along the U.S.- Mexico border, ICE officials said. -Reuters
    "We are seeing migrants arrive with illnesses and medical conditions in unprecedented numbers," said US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan last Tuesday. He added that changing demographics on the southwest border - which has seen more immigrants from Central America traveling long distances, has raised health concerns and overwhelmed border officials.
    Several other detention centers in other states have also seen a rise in outbreaks. Texas facilities have seen at least 186 cases of mumps since October - the largest outbreak in years among detention centers, according to Texas Department of State Health Services press officer Lara Anton.
    In Colorado, the GEO-Group-run Aurora Contract Detention Facility near Denver has seen 357 people quarantined after eight confirmed and five suspected cases of mumps detected since February - along with six chickenpox cases diagnosed in early January, according to Dr. Bernadette Albanese from the Tri COunty Health Department in Colorado.
    That said, vaccination rates in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are above 90% according to the CDC, while ICE detainees come from all over the world.

    WHERE IS CDC?

    SHUT THAT WHOLE BORDER DOWN AND KEEP THESE PEOPLE OUT!
