Unusual respiratory virus strikes metro kids
Fox4KC ^ | 8-28-14 | Marylin McKean

Posted on 08/29/2014 4:57:46 AM PDT by Colehill1999

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An unusual respiratory virus is striking children in the metro in big numbers. Children’s Mercy Hospital is hospitalizing 20 to 30 kids a day with the virus. The hospital is as full now as it is at the height of flu season.

This is not the same virus we told you about several weeks ago that can cause meningitis. This one can cause severe breathing trouble. Children’s Mercy has seen more than 300 cases in recent days in kids of all ages.

Damn illegals are already starting spread their filthy archaic diseases to our children. Be smart, consider home schooling or pulling your kid from school if it one they shipped all those illegals kids to. Or some of the 35 year old men posing as kids - when is someone going to stand up to obama, boehner, and holder on all this illegality???????????

Don't blame the illegals, they are just spreading diseases Americans refuse to spread.

Blame your government. A nation without border controls or immigration controls soon ceases to be a nation. This is happening before our eyes.

Did this new disease come in through the DH”S” and
Obama’s quartering to his 57 States?

or is it another weaponized virus now released by
Obama, al Qaeda and IS (the Islamic Trinity)
against the American people?

I got a cold in mid-July that turned into bronchitis. Still have lingering effects from it.

From the article: “It is enterovirus 68. The doctor says it’s well-known around the world, but cases have not been seen in Kansas City before.”

Do you really think that AQ/IS would waste time and money on a virus that is much more likely to annoy than cause death?

Yes, I got whooping cough and at first my doctor refused to call it that at first. I guess even he thought the U.S. Had shut this one down (in metro KC).

Most recently developed double pneumonia - in July!

Two friends also suffering bronchitis and bronchial pneumonia, again in July/August!

Saw on Fox this morning that MD and VA are experiencing severe crowding in their schools, along with teacher shortages, because over a thousand illegals have been dumped into some school districts there. Expect a lot of strange diseases to show up in that population.

Parents really should boycott the schools in places like that to protect their children from diseases and from gangs. This is about the worst thing Obama has done to the American people.

An article from February -

http://voxxi.com/2014/02/25/mysterious-polio-illness-in-california/

Mysterious illness affects 25 children in California

Doctors are mystified by a polio-like illness affecting approximately 25 children in California.
The affliction, which manifests as limb paralysis and flu-type symptoms, doesn’t seem to stem from a common cause. However, medical researchers believe that the infections may be caused by a type of enterovirus, the same virus family that includes polio. They’ve seen cases in children between ages 2 and 16 over the last two years.
Though polio has been eradicated from the U.S. for over 30 years, researchers are trying to isolate the current virus to see just how similar it may be to that fatal infection.

Our school district has stated they are only allowing “homeless” children, not “undocumented”. Since they were told to treat illegals as “homeless”, they won’t have to show ID, proof of residency and proof of vaccinations. They have prepared buses to take all the “homeless” children to a local vaccination clinic on the first day of school to make sure they have their shots.

So now, not only are we giving them a free education, we are giving them free school supplies, free food, free medicine and free transportation. This is why my child needs to bring in close to twice as many notebooks, pencils, pens, crayons and “donations” as they did last year. One of the PTA neighbors stated that they contemplated having police on campus this year for the orientation in case parents get rowdy during the Q&A.

Why don’t I just lose my license and claim to be illegal?

Yep, I also know people in GA who came down with it. Just a little gift from the iLLEGALS and those who choose not to vaccinate. There will be lots of health resources spent on getting those folks well. Also, the is a DPT booster for those of us adults who had the vaccine eons ago.

Thats BS. I was told by a guy in Texas 15 miles from the border that it’s not kids. There are a lot of kids.....and FAMILIES. Lots of gang members as well. He told me that what they will do is the families go together, the adults hide while the kids turn themselves in. Then after border patrol takes their kids. The parents cross before BP has time to drop the kids off at the housing.

The parents go to other legal and illegal families and sympathizers all over the country. What you aren’t being told, is that the kids are going to where their illegal relatives are. They tell INS and BP that they have a legal uncle in (insert metropolis here), and no one checks because there are too many. So without even verification, they are sent wherever they ask with money, food,clothing, cell phones, food stamps, health care, education, transportation, welfare.

What would happen if you refused to provide these "extras?" Would your child be denied an education?

As to the DPT booster, that’s what my doc suggested though they are not so readily available as one imagines. <p€Another thing that we adults older than a certain age, is getting a Small Pox vaccination as it’s making another resurgence, thanks to illegals and parents fearful of all vaccines.

No, I did intend to state small pox (it was on the upper arm and left a blister and for some of us, left slight scar.)

I understand that there has been a resurgence of it around third world countries, which means soon to visit a community near you.

I, too, have a vaccination scar on my left arm. However, small pox seems to have been eradicated in the wild, and except for a few samples kept at secure sites, in the lab.

According to the WHO: “The last known natural case was in Somalia in 1977. Since then, the only known cases were caused by a laboratory accident in 1978 in Birmingham,
England, which killed one person and caused a limited outbreak”

There are various other poxes, such as monkey pox, which rarely infect humans.

I would be more concerned about tropical and sub-tropical diseases and parasites being brought in by illegals.

“Blame your government.”

Such blame, would be misguided in a nation where it is still established that the govt works FOR the people, and not the other way around.

This is what galls me; a generation that faced so much coddled their sprats instead of raising them to be hardy and as much of a realist as they were forced to become due to hardship.

This is why I’m not coddling my kids beyond a certain point in their life. I am not raising a kid to become a dipwit hippie who will take their advantages and wreck this country.

“Are you certain about that?”

I am sure.

However, America’s rejection of God has resulted in it’s nation falling under “Judgement”. All the warnings were in place for what has befallen America, and other countries whose “pride” overshadows their sensibilities. God would have healed America long ago had it repented of it’s haughtiness, greed, and immorality. Though it seems that these things are more important than being destroyed by the enemy. So...for how long I can remain “sure”....is truly questionable.

Supposedly, those in the camps were to stay for 21 days so it’s not likely this disease came from them. A nearby school district has banned any undocumented centers. While that’s all well and good, there are still 100s of illegals enrolling their kids in school who didn’t come here through the centers. They showed up the usual way. They bring just as many diseases as those who were in the camps.
