West Nile virus has been spreading across the country for years … The number of cases reported per year has been spiraling upwards. Been going on for a decade or more, we are slow to act.
Human migration, illegal aliens cause it to spread.
Did you know that once upon a time, we had health and pest checks for entry into our country? Yep, it stopped a lot of the problems with disease we have today. We used to fumigate migrants with DDT to get rid of the pests they often carried. Not anymore …
DDT is the most effective way to combat it. Long ago Liberals used trumped up science about eagle eggs, which has now been thoroughly debunked. There is no scientific evidence that DDT does damage to anything except mosquitoes. NONE. Yet the hoax liberals spread still persists.
Our troops were equiped with DDT canisters, for the same reason. They used to bath in DDT, to keep the parasites off their bodies. I know, one of the WWII troopers was my father. He used to buy DDT canisters for the kids, to keep them parasite free … We lived in Texas. As kids we used to chase the DDT foggers down the street. No ill effects were noted.
The liberals reason for the DDT hoax, the eagle egg crying fest was simple, stop development of the countryside, everybody back in cities. Liberals are always more concerned about Gaia than they are about humans. Where you can catch one of the shiny new bullet trains to where ever they go, if they even work or run. Why not. It’s far easier to control people if they can’t go anywhere.
It did nothing for the eagle, hunting restrictions is what brought bald eagles bac. People wanted their feathers.
It’s as if humans are some sort of deadly creature.
Now the bugs are coming … again. Reuters reports:
The mayor of Dallas declared a state of emergency in the ninth largest U.S. city on Wednesday to combat the spread of West Nile virus infections, which have been more prevalent than usual in Texas and other states this year.
There have been more cases of West Nile virus reported so far this year than any year since the disease was first detected in the United States in 1999, the Centers for Disease Control said on its website.
Nearly half of the 693 human cases of the mosquito-borne West Nile virus infections reported this year to the CDC have been in Texas, along with 14 of the 26 deaths confirmed by the federal agency as of Tuesday.
The Texas health department said the number of cases of West Nile in the state had reached 465 and there had been 17 deaths. There is a lag in the CDC confirming cases and deaths.
The emergency declaration by Mayor Mike Rawlings followed a similar action last week by Dallas County officials and paves the way for aerial pesticide spraying to begin this week.
Sure it is, the media just doesn’t want you to know. Illegal immigrants, and drug smuggling.
It is not clear why the number of West Nile cases in Texas is so high. It could be related to a warmer winter and rainy spring that has contributed to an increased mosquito population, Mann said.
What a joke is our PC Press.
Most things that are really bad, are caused by liberals. As Reagan used to say, it’s not as if Liberals don’t know anything, it’s just that most things they know just aren’t so.
Equal misery for all, except themselves they have dachas.
