I just read another article today that says many diseases that have been eradicated in the US are coming in from other countries that are rife with disease.
I think that may be one cause of the huge measles outbreak that is happening as we speak.
Therefore, I think that people entering our country need to be vetted for possible diseases before they enter.
There are a lot of diseases that was nearly eradicated in this country, but not totally. A lot of the measles cases are because of the un-vaccinated kids because of of parents who don't believe in it. They got their info from an article published by a doctor who has since been debunked and I believe that man was even lost his medical license. Years ago, you HAD to be vaccinated if you wanted to attend school. Why they changed it, I have no idea but I believe it's child abuse to not do it.
The kids stand to die if they catch one of these diseases. Mumps can cause sterility in men (I don't remember what it does to women). Whooping Cough can cause lung damage and weaken the lungs to the point of developing another lung disease. Tuberculosis was never wiped out but only affects a few people today and can be cured. I don't know any parent that would want to see their child in an iron lung or paralyzed for life. Vaccines today are safer than when I went to school. and those vaxxers need to give up that misinformation.
i've seen all those diseases in friends an family and the poor kids suffer unbelievably. I, myself, had the German measles (there was no vaccine for that at the time). All I remember is being hot, very hot, my muscles hurt so much I couldn't be touched because it was so painful. Blankets hurt me, too. I couldn't eat because my throat was so sore. Thank heavens it only lasted a couple days. I would never want another kid to go through that and I can imagine what the regular measles is like.
The kids coming into this country are checked out and they caught one kid with the measles just a week or two ago. They are also vaccinating them.
