Tuberculosis Immigrates To America

After the disease was in decline it's now making a comeback...

EL PASO, TEXAS (NBC) – Two more babies have tested positive for tuberculosis at an El Paso hospital, bringing the total number of positive tests to eight.

These tests are in response to a recent discovery that a nurse’s assistant infected with TB worked at the hospital’s nursery.

The worker reported TB-related symptoms in July but was allowed to continue working for weeks.


A Mystery Virus is sweeping across 10 states, causing thousands of children to be hospitalized with severe breathing issues. The Virus, EV-D68, is uncommon in the United States, causing some to speculate the virus may be caused by the flood of illegal immigrants that have been allowed to pour over the borders in recent months.
