Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading As Migrants Settle In

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.
Some doctors say the actual number of cases of tuberculosis is far higher than the official figures suggest and have accused the RKI of downplaying the threat in an effort to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
"Around 700,000 to 800,000 applications for asylum were submitted and 300,000 refugees have disappeared. Have they been checked? 

Do they come from the high-risk countries?" - Carsten Boos, orthopedic surgeon, interview with Focus magazine.

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis.

The man, who was sheltered at a church in Bünsdorf between January and May 2017, was in frequent contact with the children, some as young as three, who were attending a day care center at the facility. He was admitted to a hospital in Rendsburg in June and subsequently diagnosed with tuberculosis — a disease which only recently has reentered the German consciousness.

Local health authorities say that in addition to the children, parents and teachers as well as parishioners are also being tested for the disease, which can develop months or even years after exposure. It remains unclear if the man received the required medical exams when he first arrived in Germany, or if he is one of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have slipped through the cracks.

This is why SCREENING these people is REQUIRED! Extreme vetting of disease and political views are important if you want to immigrate here.

Why can't people get that?

This isn't just in Germany. How about the Chipotle Grill just outside of DC. Virginia health department says virus that made so many people sick was from an employee with poor hygiene. Have you been in a Chipotle around DC........they are all Middle Eastern and south Asia immigrants.

I went into a sub shop in the Wash DC area once and there were middle eastern people running the place, I saw a guy making sandwiches pick his nose,wipe his fingers on his apron and kept right on working. Needless to say I left and never went back and to this day I won't buy any food made by people I consider to be filthy and nasty.
