Germany reaping the whirlwind of infectious diseases admitted to the country along with the migrants

Gatestone has a very informative piece this morning, thanks to reader Cathy for sending it my way.


Germans greet refugees in Berlin (2014): Onlookers clapped and chanted: “Say it loud, say it clear, refugees are welcome here.”


As you read this story, do NOT forget that refugees entering the US are being permitted entry even if they have TB.  We learned just this week that the state of Minnesota was financially strapped as its health system attempts to cope with infectious diseases in its migrant community.

So although this story involves Germany, you, Americans are not immune!

Just like in Germany the reason you don’t hear about the diseases in the refugee flow to America is because authorities are “downplaying the threat in an effort to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.”

And, as I have said repeatedly if Islamic terrorism doesn’t worry you, this should…..

Germany: Infectious Diseases Spreading as Migrants Settle In

A failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary at a church in northern Germany to prevent him from being deported has potentially infected more than 50 German children with a highly contagious strain of tuberculosis.

The man, who was sheltered at a church in Bünsdorf between January and May 2017, was in frequent contact with the children, some as young as three, who were attending a day care center at the facility. He was admitted to a hospital in Rendsburg in June and subsequently diagnosed with tuberculosis — a disease which only recently has reentered the German consciousness.

Local health authorities say that in addition to the children, parents and teachers as well as parishioners are also being tested for the disease, which can develop months or even years after exposure. It remains unclear if the man received the required medical exams when he first arrived in Germany, or if he is one of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have slipped through the cracks.

The tuberculosis scare has cast a renewed spotlight on the increased risk of infectious diseases in Germany since Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed in around two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.


The incidence of Hepatitis B, for example, has increased by 300% during the last three years, according to the RKI. The number of reported cases in Germany was 3,006 in 2016, up from 755 cases in 2014. Most of the cases are said to involve unvaccinated migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. The incidence of measles in Germany jumped by more than 450% between 2014 and 2015, while the number of cases of chicken pox, meningitis, mumps, rubella and whooping cough were also up. Migrants also accounted for at least 40% of the new cases of HIV/AIDS identified in Germany since 2015, according to a separate RKI report.

The RKI statistics may be just the tip of the iceberg. The number of reported cases of tuberculosis, for example, was 5,915 in 2016, up from 4,488 cases in 2014, an increase of more than 30% during that period. Some doctors, however, believe that the actual number of cases of tuberculosis is far higher and have accused the RKI of downplaying the threat in an effort to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.

I ask repeatedly, but never get an answer: Do volunteers who work with refugees in the US get any sort of training about how to spot infectious diseases in those they are helping and how to protect their own families at home?

  1. I say stop creating conspiracies and deals of fatal attraction. We should not be making choice for other countries, and other countries should do likewise. Each culture and civilization MUST evolve on their own and MUST take responsibility for their own actions. I TELL YOU WHAT!!! We shall graduate from calling our elected officials and signing petitions to just plain going ahead and busting their damned doors down and that goes for all of their followers including contractors, churches, and synagogues. There will be a time where a hammer and some drills will be needed.


    1. The West can not babysit the Third World. If all cultures are created equal, then the West should not be taking people into the West from the Third World because that would take away from their Third World experience of equality.


  2. If the Germans and the people of Minnesota are to stupid to keep the invaders out then they have decided to commit suicide and there is nothing we can do about it other than say goodbye worthless people who should not be saved.


    1. John, do you live in Wyoming the only state smart enough to keep refugee program out (at least so far)?


      1. At the moment I am outside of the USA but I usually live in Lawton OK. I have yet to see a Burka in the mall in Lawton but we do get plenty of allied forces from Moslem countries (UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia) doing training at Fort Sill OK.

        My point is if the people are not going to stand up and fight for their existence and are clearly suicidal then there is nothing that can be done. I think all the White people should move out of Minnesota and let the Somalis have it and see how long they last without White welfare money to support them. Same in Chicago and Illinois with the indigenous Africans. Without Whites, the Africans will not be able to survive.

        Back to Minnesota, people should stop giving money to the Catholic and Lutheran Churches because both of these organizations are bringing in Moslems to kill you. Please don’t cooperate in your own murder by paying the murdering Catholic and Lutheran Churches.

        p.s.: I’m Catholic and I would not give those fat cat mafia Catholic bishops a dime regardless of what boys they are having sex with.

  3. Admitting migrants with infectious diseases poses grave dangers to the populations of Western countries. Among the most serious of these diseases is antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis. The large Somali community in Minnesota, US, is a case in point .. The healthcare system in this community’s currently overwhelmed by the numbers of patients already suffering from antibiotic-resistant TB, and it could spread out to the outlying communities wherein US citizens live, unless the affected community’s quarantined.
    In Bunsdorf, Germany between January and May, 2017, a failed asylum seeker from Yemen who was given sanctuary in a Church came in contact with some 50 children. This individual was eventually admitted to a hospital and diagnosed with antibiotic-resistant TB, and those children will now have to be tested for this disease.


  4. Why TB positive immigrants excluded? I thought that was the law, in order to protect public health. Surely the Trump administration could do this without a fight, who’s in charge?


  5. This will become a worldwide plaque for every nation. Greed, wickedness, evil, and the worship of false gods, we are reaping what we sow.
