    NYC struggles with spike in tuberculosis cases as illegal immigrants spread previously contained disease

    New York City (NYC) is seeing a spike in tuberculosis, a disease that the country largely got under control decades ago, and it's being driven largely by the influx of migrants making their way to the city.
    So far, around 500 cases of the disease have been seen in the city this year, which is a 20 percent rise over the number recorded last year at this time. Authorities are alarmed by the fact that infections have also reached their highest number for this time of year in NYC in more than a decade, and fears are growing that the illness could spread to other areas.
    It is believed that the influx of migrants is fueling the health crisis. More than 100,000 migrants have made their way to NYC since spring, and their cramped housing conditions place them at a greater risk of infection. The problem is being compounded by long waits at city-run tuberculosis clinics, which means people are being treated when the disease has already advanced to a more challenging stage and has had more time to spread to others.
    The city’s rate of 6.1 cases for every 100,000 people is already one of the nation’s highest, and the incoming winter weather could further facilitate the spread of the disease.
    Experts maintain that this unexpected surge could indicate similar problems elsewhere in the nation. Treatment Action Group’s Elizabeth Lovinger noted: “When there are particularly high spikes in TB and other infectious diseases in New York City, that tends to be kind of a bellwether for the rest of the country.”
    TB is spread easily in cramped living conditions

    Once considered one of the deadliest diseases in the world, the fatality rate of TB has gone down dramatically in the U.S. with advances in health. However, it remains highly contagious and kills around 1.5 million people worldwide each year. Some strains have developed a resistance to many modern drugs, making it very difficult to treat.

    Breathing in droplets that contain the bacteria from other people, such as via coughing, speaking, sneezing or singing, is enough to cause infection. As a result, those with known exposure to TB are typically given medication and monitored to try to control it. It typically takes several months of medication to fully eliminate the bacteria.
    Unfortunately, those who have been infected in the past could experience a latent infection. This occurs when bacteria sit dormant inside the lungs and emerge when the person’s immune system is weak. This can also happen to people who have been exposed to TB.
    Migrants aren't being checked for diseases at "open borders"

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, immigration applicants who have communicable diseases cannot be admitted to the country. However, there is no way of stopping those who are not screened before entering the U.S., such as undocumented migrants.
    One Texas internist, Dr. James Hodges, reported that the current “open border” is causing more drug-resistant TB cases in the U.S. because many patients only receive partial treatment with over-the-counter antibiotics in Mexico.
    It’s not just TB that they are bringing across the border; syphilis and other illnesses are also on the rise.
    The sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona, Mark Lamb, told USA Today: “Border Patrol and local agencies have seen all types of diseases like tuberculosis, scabies, COVID, hepatitis A and B, gonorrhea, syphilis, mumps, chicken pox, dengue fever, etc."
    He added: "When the discussion was hot and heavy about Title 42 (a law that allows denial of entry to limit the spread of a disease) going away, I would consistently say it wasn’t just about COVID; it was about all the other health hazards being brought across our borders.”
    Is anyone surprised that Biden’s open borders policy that lets hundreds of thousands of people in without screening them and ships them all around the country is spreading previously contained diseases and potentially creating a major health crisis?

    As illegals pour in by the thousands, New York City sees surge in TUBERCULOSIS cases

    The Big Apple is seeing a "dramatic" rise in tuberculosis (TB) cases as illegal alien "migrants" flood the city by the tens of thousands.
    Preliminary data suggests that there are at least 500 known cases of TB in New York City, a figure that is 20 percent higher than last year. For the first time in more than a decade, in fact, tuberculosis cases are at their highest level in the city.
    Health officials worry that TB will spread well beyond just New York City, especially as hospitals and health clinics are completely overwhelmed by all the illegals coming in to give birth and obtain other "free" services on the taxpayer dime.
    Since this past spring, more than 100,000 illegal migrants have arrived in New York City. Many of them are living in cramped housing conditions, which are ripe for the spread of TB.
    Overall, TB cases have increased across America by about five percent this year compared to last, this according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    U.S. no longer vaccinates for TB because injections are too dangerous

    TB used to be one of the deadliest infections in the world, killing about half of those infected by it. The death rate later dropped, which some credit to a "vaccine" that is no longer even administered in the U.S. due to serious dangers.
    Known as Bacillus Calmetter-Guerin, the jab for TB is no longer given – and has not been given since the 1970s – because of risks, not to mention the fact that TB cases precipitously declined all on their own during that time, likely due to improved public sanitation conditions.

    Patients and health care workers who have had close contact with a TB patient can still get jabbed with Bacillus Calmetter-Guerin if they so choose, but they do so at their own risk.
    The primary way doctors in the U.S. treat TB today is by administering a cocktail of drugs over the course of eight months.
    "Previously infected or exposed people, however, face the risk of 'latent' infections, when the bacteria remains dormant in the lungs ready to emerge should the immune system weaken again," one report warns.
    Elizabeth Lovinger from the advocacy Group Treatment Action Group told Politico recently that "this is definitely a more dramatic resurgence than we would have probably expected," referring to the massive rise in TB cases accompanying the illegal invasion.
    "When there are particularly high spikes in TB and other infectious diseases in New York City, that tends to be kind of a bellwether for the rest of the country."
    During the early days of the COVID "pandemic" when millions of people were stuck inside, TB cases fell, likely because nobody was allowed to go in for testing.
    In New York City, there are only four clinics dedicated to handling TB patients, and one of them is at risk of impending closure. That one is the only one in Manhattan, by the way.
    The TB clinic that used to exist in Washington Heights was converted to a COVID treatment ward during the scamdemic, though there are said to be plans to have it eventually reopen as a TB clinic now that COVID is done.
    "We have pioneered treatments and therapies in New York City," announced a spokesman for the New York City Department of Health, adding that the Big Apple is still a "leader in TB care."
    "We also launched a new latent tuberculosis infection provider outreach campaign to increase screening, diagnosis and treatment among at-risk New Yorkers."
