For anyone keeping track of the enrichments of mass, unselective, unvetted, diversity-obsessed, devil-may-care-style immigration, here’s something to add to the list:
A former luxury hotel-turned migrant centre in Austria is the site of an outbreak of a deadly bacterial disease which has seen at least one migrant put into intensive care.
The outbreak of louse-born relapsing fever is just the latest re-emergence of diseases long thought exterminated in Europe, carried back to the continent by a great migratory movement of millions of people from Africa and Asia.
Well, they were ‘long thought’ exterminated in Europe because they were. But then our lovely political-classes developed a weird obsession with the idea of attracting as many migrants as possible from barbarous, equatorial, failed states and – hey presto! – the old fashioned sicknesses are back!
Particularly associated with Ethiopia, Sudan, Eritrea, and Somalia, the extremely contagious bacteria causes severe illness and can be fatal in 30 to 70 per cent of cases, according to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
It’s a good job antibiotics are still effective isn’t it?
Borrelia recurrentis, the bacteria transferred from infected lice to humans which causes Relapsing Fever was a global disease a century ago until it was eradicated in Europe. It ravaged eastern Europe in the immediate aftermath of the Great War and during the Russian revolution, killing five million people from 13 million known cases between 1919 and 1923.
Migrants have been credited with a host of other diseases appearing in Europe again, in some cases for the first time in decades. As reported by Breitbart London, European hospitals have seen Diphtheria, Tuberculosis, And Malaria cases in historic numbers in the past year.
Yep, all the classics are back. On the plus side, all those migrants included great numbers of cancer scientists, brain surgeons, aeronautical engineers, mathematicians, a number of great composers, writers, artists, many brilliant cosmologists, oceanographers, botanists, along with an incredible number of entrepreneurs. When you know about all the good stuff migrants bring, a few diseases doesn’t matter! Here’s a picture of a bunch of them working on a faster-than-light-drive:
