That is a possibility presented by Aaron Klein writing at World Net Daily this week, here. Hat tip: several readers.
We briefly noted the fact that Ebola, although supposedly a different strain than the one making the news, is present in DR Congo.
And, we are bringing a huge number of Congolese refugees (DR Congo) to America at the UNHCR’s urging—50,000 by 2019, see our post yesterday.
We admitted 4,540 Congolese refugees to the US in FY2014 which ended on Sept. 30th, 2014 (go here, map is incorrect, scroll down to table).
However, I think a greater long-term threat to America is what we reported yesterday—Congolese women in need of mental health treatment raising children in some impoverished home in your town or city.
Remember readers! Refugee health treatment is the responsibility of your local health departments! See our health issues category here for what other diseases and health problems (including mental health) you are responsible for.
From World Net Daily which is becoming the go-to major internet news source*** for refugee news (something we are very grateful to see):
Since an outbreak of Ebola hit the Democratic Republic of the Congo in July, the Obama administration has brought into the U.S. at least 1,900 refugees from the disease-stricken nation, WND has learned.
Required medical screening for refugees may not detect all diseases. The mandatory blood and urine tests for all refugees would not detect Ebola.
The strain of Ebola found in the Congo is slightly different from the virus that has been ravaging West Africa. Researchers have concluded the Congolese outbreak is not connected to the epidemic in West Africa.
The U.S. refugee program this year is on pace to resettle 70,000 citizens, including a limit for the fiscal year of 2014 of 14,000 from Africa, with the State Department giving priority to Congolese refugees.
Since July, at least 1,900 Congolese refugees have been resettled within the U.S., according to statistics provided by the State Department.
A report from the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration shows 944 refugees were admitted from the Congo in July; 628 in August and 338 in September, for a total of 1,910 Congolese refugees.
The exact number of arrivals from the Congo for this month are not yet published. However, the total number of October arrivals so far from the region of Africa, according to the State Department, is 934, with most likely coming from the Congo.
The Congo has had its own outbreak of Ebola that started in late-July reportedly after a hunter brought home an infected bush animal carcass. Since then, 49 people have died in the Congo.
There is much more, read it all.
