Migrants Continue to Enrich Germany with TB, Leprosy, Rubella, Typhus and Whooping Cough

by

Third world migrants continue to enrich Germany with exotic diseases that were rare or nonexistent just a few years ago.

TB, scabies and a parasite that attacks the liver are a few of the diseases brought in to Germany from third world countries.

Also on the rise are rubella, leprosy, typhus and whooping cough.

Gatestone Institute reported:

A new report by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the federal government’s central institution for monitoring and preventing diseases, confirms an across-the-board increase in disease since 2015, when Germany took in an unprecedented number of migrants.

The Infectious Disease Epidemiology Annual Report — which was published on July 12, 2017 and provides data on the status of more than 50 infectious diseases in Germany during 2016 — offers the first glimpse into the public health consequences of the massive influx of migrants in late 2015.

The report shows increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, cryptosporidiosis, dengue fever, echinococcosis, enterohemorrhagic E. coli, giardiasis, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, meningoencephalitis, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, shigellosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, trichinellosis, tuberculosis, tularemia, typhus and whooping cough.

Germany has — so far at least — escaped the worst-case scenario: most of the tropical and exotic diseases brought into the country by migrants have been contained; there have no mass outbreaks among the general population. More common diseases, however, many of which are directly or indirectly linked to mass migration, are on the rise, according to the report.

The incidence of Hepatitis B, for example, has increased by 300% during the last three years, according to the RKI. The number of reported cases in Germany was 3,006 in 2016, up from 755 cases in 2014. Most of the cases are said to involve unvaccinated migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. The incidence of measles in Germany jumped by more than 450% between 2014 and 2015, while the number of cases of chicken pox, meningitis, mumps, rubella and whooping cough were also up. Migrants also accounted for at least 40% of the new cases of HIV/AIDS identified in Germany since 2015, according to a separate RKI report.

A recent sympathetic TED talk focused on the challenge of disease-ridden migrants in Germany.

    At least in Germany they are contained. I wonder how they are do in the US. Ellis Island used to be a holding area for assessment. Nothing now. My guess is both countries catch the diseases after the fact. Before that, how many unsuspecting individuals have been exposed and those immigrants who realize they were exposed, how many want to follow their fellow travelers into a detention center? Not many I suspect. They likely continue to spread diseases into the general population of their host countries. The schools are of great concern to me. Our innocent children are not as equipped to handle exposure in the confined classrooms. Their immune systems aren’t strong.

      The best way to control it is to deport it back to country of origin

        Until then.

        • cptspanky

          quarantine them all to make sure

          • Salty

            That seems the appropriate answer. But, we’re not doing that.

          • cptspanky

            Liberals will never allow that. The Liberals will never allow any thought that these Muslim saints are anything but the best thing that could ever happen to Europe

            Maybe you’re right but I’m not going to roll over in the US. Neither do I believe our President will roll over.

          • cptspanky

            President won’t can’t trust some of those Rhinos though

          • Salty

            He knows that.
