THIRD-WORLD AMERICA: Fungal Infection Resulting in ‘40% In-Hospital Mortality’ Sweeps Across the Nation
As the flood gates are being opened for the third world thanks to liberal public policy, the problems of the third world are arriving to the West alongside them. An incredibly deadly fungal infection is sweeping through the US right now, leaving experts puzzled on how to stop this public health crisis.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is issuing a dire warning as healthcare centers struggle to deal with a new emergency that is spreading rapidly. Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) estimate that the fungal infection, known as Candida auris or C. auris, is “associated with up to 40% in-hospital mortality.”
“Most strains of C. auris are resistant to at least one antifungal drug, one-third are resistant to two antifungal drug classes, and some strains are resistant to all three major classes of antifungal drugs. C. auris can spread readily between patients in healthcare facilities. It has caused numerous healthcare-associated outbreaks that have been difficult to control,” the CSTE said.
“Patients who have been hospitalized in a healthcare facility a long time, have a central venous catheter, or other lines or tubes entering their body, or have previously received antibiotics or antifungal medications, appear to be at highest risk of infection with this yeast,” the CDC added.
More than 700 cases have already been reported, mostly in New York, New Jersey and Illinois but is moving to Florida, California, and other states as well. Symptoms include a fever and the chills that do not typically respond to antibiotics or treatment once the infection is in an afflicted individual’s bloodstream.
“Conventional laboratory techniques could lead to misidentification and inappropriate management,” the CDC says, “making it difficult to control the spread of C. auris in healthcare settings.”
This is happening at the same time that the US southern border is being flooded with third-world migrants, who are known to bring filth and disease into the country.
Last month, there were 2,287 migrant detainees who had to be quarantined because they had contagious conditions such as mumps, chickenpox and influenza. The record influx of migrants headed across the US southern border are facilitating the spread of illnesses and putting American lives in danger.
“Migrants travel north from countries where poverty and disease are rampant, and their health can be aggravated by the physical toll of the journey,” US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said while appearing before Congress.
As long as the refugee crisis continues to persist, public health nightmares such as C. auris are going to become commonplace as the America falls into a third-world nation.
