Phoenix infant dies from enterovirus D68, Obama virus, 2013 study found enterovirus D68 in Central American children, Obama dispersed illegal alien children across America

“Barack Obama is endangering the children of the US and now our troops. Where is the outrage?”…Citizen Wells

“You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected,”
“So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”…Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

Incompetency or intentional?

You decide.

Another child has died from the Enterovirus D68 epidemic in this country likely caused by the entry  and dispersal of over 60,000 illegal alien children from Central America.

Barack Obama ignored the warnings from numerous health care professionals.

“Phoenix infant dies from enterovirus”

“A Valley couple is reeling from the loss of their infant son, and reached out to 3TV after doctors confirmed enterovirus killed him.

3TV has learned that baby, Lancen Kendall, is one of 24 cases statewide that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is testing for the deadly D68 strain.

Lancen’s parents say he showed no signs or symptoms that he was sick and that he just didn’t wake up from a nap earlier this month. He was rushed to Banner Thunderbird Medical Center and, five days later, pronounced brain dead.

“The lack of warning is the scariest part to me. We didn’t know he was sick,” said his father, Kevin Kendall.

The death of their 5-month-old is still an impossible scenario for the couple. Their son always had a beaming smile and appeared healthy, they say, but doctors determined he was dying from a strain of the enterovirus.

“It’s kind of terrifying that it literally came out of nowhere,” said his mother, Kathleen Kendall.

State health officials tell 3TV that Lancen is one of 24 recent enterovirus cases statewide, but they can’t comment specifically about the cases only to say the CDC is testing them for the deadly D68 strain. The CDC referred 3TV back to the state for comment.”

“The True Story Of Enterovirus D68 is Not A Story of Surprise

Back in July of 2014 we outlined how the “surprise influx” of Unaccompanied Alien Children from Central America was not in actuality “a surprise”. We knew it was not a surprise because the Obama Administration was specifically pre-planning for an influx a full seven months before the story began to reach the headlines:

On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“.

Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000.

Obviously the key take-away was: How could DHS and HHS claim a surprise when they were specifically looking for contractors to handle a very specific number of UAC’s seven month earlier?”

From Virology Journal October 11, 2013.

“Background

Human rhinoviruses (HRVs) belong to the Picornaviridae family with high similarity to human enteroviruses (HEVs). Limited data is available from Latin America regarding the clinical presentation and strains of these viruses in respiratory disease.

Methods

We collected nasopharyngeal swabs at clinics located in eight Latin American countries from 3,375 subjects aged 25 years or younger who presented with influenza-like illness.

Results

Our subjects had a median age of 3 years and a 1.2:1.0 male:female ratio. HRV was identified in 16% and HEV was identified in 3%. HRVs accounted for a higher frequency of isolates in those of younger age, in particular children < 1 years old. HRV-C accounted for 38% of all HRVs detected. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a high proportion of recombinant strains between HRV-A/HRV-C and between HEV-A/HEV-B. In addition, both EV-D68 and EV-A71 were identified.

Conclusions

In Latin America as in other regions, HRVs and HEVs account for a substantial proportion of respiratory viruses identified in young people with ILI, a finding that provides additional support for the development of pharmaceuticals and vaccines targeting these pathogens.

BACKGROUND

Acute respiratory infections (ARIs) are a leading cause of acute illness worldwide and remain the most important cause of pediatric mortality”

“It’s easy to look back and realize what a jerk Hitler was. But at the time, Hitler looked pretty good to the German people, with the help of the media. He was TIME Magazine’s Man Of The Year in 1938. The German people assumed they were safe from a tyrant. They lived in a Republic, after all, with strict laws regarding what the government could and more importantly could not do. Their leader was a devoutly religious man, and had even sung with the boy’s choir of a monastery in his youth.”…whatreallyhappened.com

Forget the irresponsible actions of Barack Obama for a moment and the subsequent threats of Ebola and ISIS to this country.

We have an epidemic of Enterovirus D68 in this country and it is killing, crippling and making our children extremely ill.

We know for a fact that D68 was rare in this country prior to this year.

We know for a fact that Enterovirus D68 was found in the child population of Central America in 2013.

We know for a fact that there is no vaccine.

And we know for a fact that Obama was warned about not screening the illegal immigrant children for disease.

We also know for a fact that Obama requested help from governors  in dispersing these children all over the country.

We know for a fact that the children were dispersed all over the US.

Some areas of the country protested.

This is not your father’s Democrat Party.

Many people have supported Obama because of his skin color, white liberal guilt or just because of the modern day left agenda.

This is no different than supporting Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s because of his rhetoric about a greater Germany.

The Greensboro News Record presented one of the most irresponsible and apparently party line editorials that I have ever read recently.

“The United Nations counts 641,000 refugees living in Jordan and 609,000 in Turkey, thanks to Middle East conflicts.

Kenya hosts 534,000 refugees. Chad has 434,000 and Ethiopia 433,000. These are poor African nations.

In North Carolina, leaders in two counties have passed resolutions saying they don’t want any refugees, not one, from the crisis along the border with Mexico. “This issue is not of Brunswick County’s making, and is much larger than Brunswick County, and Brunswick County does not have the excess resources necessary for relief,” its resolution said. Surry County commissioners adopted a similar statement.

Brunswick and Surry are not among the four North Carolina counties listed by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement as having received 50 or more young people this year as part of the recent crisis. The four are Mecklenburg, 536; Wake, 188; Durham, 180; and Wayne, 55. The total for North Carolina is 1,648.

Opposition stems from concern that these children may be eligible to enroll in school and receive other government services. But their presence in North Carolina is not only a reality; it is a legal and humanitarian necessity.

They arrived at our border to escape dangers in their native Central American countries. This was not a matter of poor border security; they wanted to be taken into U.S. custody. Under a 2008 law, they are entitled to legal due process — an evaluation to determine whether they qualify for asylum. This takes months, if not years. In the meantime, many are settled with family members or other sponsors in every state.

Should they be crowded into concentration camps on the border, or should communities across the country share in the responsibility of caring for them? Any county can declare it had no role in creating the problem, but it’s an American problem. It belongs to all Americans.”

“So, perhaps we can emulate many poorer countries and share a little space with people who have nowhere else to go.”

Ever heard of Ellis Island?

Many of our ancestors were screened for health issues there.

Some were rejected.

Why? Because people had more damned sense then and we had real leadership.

Instead of blindly following the agenda of Obama et al, the News Record owes their readers an apology.

This is another example of irresponsible party ideology.

And it needs to stop.

“National Public Radio’s Kai Ryssdal recently talked about the weak economy. His guests, two reporters from The Washington Post and The New York Times, acknowledged the obvious — that the economy is underperforming.

Yet, in the 20 minutes of my sitting and listening in the car in bad Los Angeles traffic, I heard no one mention the words “President Barack Obama.”… Larry Elder May 10, 2012

“Barack Obama is endangering the children of the US and now our troops. Where is the outrage?”…Citizen Wells

“You can’t fix stupid.”…Ron White

NPR has proven its bias in support of Obama over and over again.

The question is, how stupid and/or Obama biased can one be?

These people have children and families.

Do they not care?

Is their political ideology so strong that it trumps human decency?

“4 Things We’ve Learned About Enterovirus D68, And 1 Mystery”

“On Aug. 15, doctors and nurses at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., realized they had a problem.

Children were coming into the emergency room with an illness that caused wheezing and breathing problems so severe that some children ended up in the ICU on ventilators. And it was spreading fast.

“By Aug. 20, we were beyond our bed capacity,” Dr. Mary Anne Jackson, chief of the infectious diseases section at Children’s Mercy, said at the IDWeek meeting in Philadelphia.

Since then, the virus that caused those illnesses, enterovirus D68, has sickened children across the country and may be responsible for the deaths of five children. Jackson and Dr. Aaron Milstone of Johns Hopkins Children’s Centers briefed reporters on the outbreak Thursday morning.

Bottom line: There are still a lot more questions than answers about the outbreak and how the virus might affect children’s health in the future, but we’re learning. Here’s what infectious disease specialists have found out to date.

This is the largest outbreak of EV-D68 ever recorded. Cases have been reported in 45 states and the District of Columbia. Though the CDC has confirmed 664 cases as of Wednesday, there are undoubtedly many, many more cases that are causing milder coldlike illnesses. “This is different this year, what we’re seeing,” Milstone said. “Something is different.”

So far it’s impossible to know what’s making it different, Milstone says — if the virus has changed so it’s more dangerous or if it’s spreading so much more widely that we’re seeing more cases, both mild and severe.”

What’s different?

Obama has allowed thousands of illegal alien children from Central America to be dispersed throughout the country without first being screened for diseases.

He was warned by numerous health care professionals.

From Citizen Wells September 14, 2014.

“These facts are indisputable.

Numerous health care professionals warned of not screening illegal aliens for diseases.

Obama ignored their warnings.

Enterovirus D68 was not widespread in the US before this year.”

“From AliPac September 4, 2014.
“Three months ago, people like Dr. Jane Orient, myself and anonymous Border Patrol agents began to call for quarantine, for the purpose of health screening all immigrants. Many people laughed and said there was no real threat. The invasion of our country, the very invasion that people said was not real, has just endangered the entire country. We are sitting on the beginning of a series of pandemic outbreaks.

Prominent Health Officials Have Called for Quarantining All Illegal Immigrants for Health Reasons

In June, one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient, called for proper health screening as she thought the unbridled and unconditioned entry of illegal immigrants into the country was problematic.

Dr. Austin King, head of the Texas Medical Association, is now calling out Texas Governor Rick Perry and President Barrack Obama to allow doctors to screen all of the unaccompanied children who have been coming across the border from Honduras and El Salvador. The President has remained silent with regard to the request.

Dr. King expressed the view that in order for more doctors to go down to the border, emergency funding would likely need to be approved, and ICE would have to change some policies in order to allow everyone coming across to be screened.

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, a prominent preventive medicine physician, who previously served as the former Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, stated that “Legal immigrants are required to pay for medical exams and screening tests conducted by approved physicians before they arrive here. They’re not arriving in the U.S. carrying diseases, and then being dispersed into cities across the nation.” The CDC acknowledges this very fact on their website. Vliet further stated that the CDC’s own guidelines are clearly being violated with regards to the illegal immigrants currently crossing the border.”

“About 20″ cases of a polio-like syndrome have been identified in California children over the past 18 months, a Stanford University researcher says.
Dr. Keith Van Haren, a pediatric neurologist at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, has written a report about five of the early cases.”

“However, some types of enterovirus are more serious. These can cause hand, foot and mouth disease; viral meningitis; encephalitis (inflammation of the brain); an infection of the heart; and paralysis in some patients.”

As you know, there is no vaccine for Enterovirus D68 or Ebola.

More stupidity.

From the Observer July 10, 2014.

“Disease Threat From Immigrant Children Wildly Overstated”

“Before demonizing undocumented children, we should look at the facts: The vast majority of Central Americans are vaccinated against all these diseases. Governments concerned about health, and good parents investing in their kids, have made Central American kids better-vaccinated than Texan kids. We fear them not because they are actually sick, but because of powerful anti-immigration narratives that link foreigners to disease.”

I stopped by and chatted with John Hammer of the Rhino Times yesterday. In print in NC in a major metro area John exposes the lies of Obama as well as NC politicians and officials.

From the Rhino Times today, Thursday, October 9, 2014.

“The Republican Party is taking Sen. Kay Hagan to court to find out if she used her influence for a company owned by her husband to get special treatment from the federal government. A company owned by Kay Hagan’s husband, Chip, and his brothers received $390,000 in stimulus money.

Maybe it’s time that somebody looked into the fact that Chip Hagan was also a party to a lawsuit against the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority, which provides water to Greensboro, High Point, Randleman, Randolph County, Archdale and Jamestown.

Chip Hagan’s group sued, and the judge who made the original ruling in the case at that time had been nominated by Kay Hagan for a lifetime appointment as a federal judge. The ruling went against the water authority and, in a settlement, the water authority agreed to pay Chip Hagan and the owners of other downstream hydroelectric dams $2.35 million.

Kay Hagan later dropped her support for part-time Superior Court Judge Calvin Murphy’s appointment, but three weeks before the ruling was made Hagan had nominated him. So when Murphy made the ruling in favor of Chip Hagan’s company and the other owners of small dams downstream who were represented by Hagan’s law firm, Murphy was recommended by Kay Hagan for the prestigious and lucrative lifetime appointment as a federal judge.

It was only after it became public that Kay Hagan had nominated a judge who made a controversial ruling in favor of her husband’s company that Kay Hagan withdrew the nomination.

The eventual settlement of the lawsuit cost the water users of Greensboro $1.25 million.

The executive director of the Piedmont Triad Regional Water Authority at the time of the ruling, John Kime, was quoted in newspaper reports as saying, “It was clear to me that we weren’t getting an unbiased opinion, based on politics.”

One of Kay Hagan’s husband’s companies gets $390,000 in federal funds and another gets an extremely favorable ruling by a judge who she had nominated to the federal bench, but Kay Hagan knows nothing about either.”

John Hammer exposes the normal Obama pay to play politics that Kay Hagan has been involved in.

But there are far more serious consequences of people like Hagan supporting Obama and his leftists policies.

This is a matter of life and death and impacts your children now.

Hagan voted for Obamacare and has voted lockstep with Obama 95 percent of the time.

From Sharyl Attkisson October 4, 2014.
“Polio-like illness claims fifth life in U.S.”

“At least five children infected with the respiratory illness known enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) have died in the U.S. in the past month.”

“The lastest confirmed victim was a four-year-old New Jersey boy, Eli Waller. He died at home on September 25. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed the cause of death Friday night. But health officials say they have no idea how he contracted the virus. A health official says Eli was “asymptomatic and fine” when he went to bed but died overnight. He had no known preexisting immune weakness.”

“The CDC reports that in the past month and a half, at least 538 people in 43 states and the District of Columbia have become ill with EV-D68. Most of them are children and some developed limb paralysis. Polio, which can cause paralysis and death, is a type of enterovirus. EV-D68 is one of more than a hundred “non-polio” enteroviruses.”

“However, a study published in Virology Journal, found EV-D68 among some of the 3,375 young, ill people tested in eight Latin American countries, including the Central American nations of El Salvador and Nicaragua, in 2013.  (See Fig. 3)

Though the U.S. government is keeping secret the locations of the illegal immigrant children, there are significant numbers of them in both cities in which the current outbreak was first identified, Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois, according to local advocates and press reports.”

In March of 2012, CDC reported emergence of a new strain of another non-polio enterovirus in the U.S. responsible for what’s known as hand, foot and mouth disease. The patients’ age range and the severity of the illness were considered unusual in the U.S. and resulted in a more severe and extensive rash. It had been previously seen in Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Finland. Hand, foot and mouth disease is typically not considered a serious illness and usually resolves itself.”

It is too bad we are spending so much time and resources fighting ISIS, a problem that Obama, et al, allowed to exacerbate.

It is too bad these so called religious fanatics, who if they truly had religion would be assisting to help fight Ebola.

It is too bad that Muslims don’t do a better job of policing those who use Islam for an evil agenda.

It is too bad that poor people in Africa must suffer more.

We must protect our country and rally the world to fight Ebola, in an intelligent, compassionate manner.

From the BBC October 7, 2014.

“Devastating news from the Ebola clinic”

“Today we are filming at the country’s main referral hospital – Connaught Hospital in central Freetown. As we enter, I see a woman in a purple and pink shirt lying on a bench, with her head in her hands. She looks extremely unwell. This area is where patients showing symptoms of Ebola come for help, but the help is limited.

This isn’t a treatment centre; it’s an isolation ward within the hospital. People have to travel many miles from here by ambulance to get proper supportive treatment. There are just 18 beds in this hospital, and they are all full.

The latest patient to arrive is a one-month-old baby. Ebola killed both his parents overnight. The chances are he is also infected and will die within days. All medics can do is feed him and hold him through protective suits. I am reminded of my trip to Guinea a couple of months back, when I was covering this outbreak. Back then, I watched the body of a four-month-old baby lowered into the ground. Ebola also killed his mother. It’s heart-breaking to imagine the most likely outcome for this other tiny baby.”
“As we are leaving the hospital, a black truck pulls up. The burial team is here to remove two bodies and bury them in the nearby cemetery. We watch and then follow the makeshift hearse to these victims’ final resting place.

A whole area is cordoned off just for suspected and confirmed Ebola victims. Walking into it is eerie and tragic. There are hundreds of graves, most dug very recently, with fresh mounds of mud on top of them. One or two have a cross or children’s toys scattered on them. Most, though, are unmarked. What hits me is the sheer scale – 400 bodies buried here in a matter of weeks.

The burial team is efficient and almost jovial. I imagine it’s the only way they can keep performing this grim task day in, day out. The cemetery supervisor, Abdul Rahman Parker, tells me he’s been ostracised by his community – people are scared of him now because he handles the bodies of Ebola victims. But he says he doesn’t care, and that Sierra Leone needs him to continue doing this job, even if its people don’t realise it.”
“My brother Francis is sick, and they won’t take him at this centre. They say they are full. What are we supposed to do? We’ve been travelling from hospital to hospital all day and no-one will take him.”

I peer into the car. Francis is sitting in the passenger seat staring into space. His eyes are red, and he has the hiccups – both are clear symptoms of Ebola. After almost an hour of pleading, the family eventually give up. The five of them pile back into their car and drive away. Everyone in that vehicle is now potentially at risk of catching Ebola.

When we enter the treatment centre, I feel the helplessness and frustration of that family and I demand to know why they didn’t allow that potentially dying man inside. Surely they can do something for him. The centre’s co-ordinator, Luca Rolla, tells me their priority has to be their staff and the patients they are already treating. He tells me that they cannot go over capacity or they risk everyone else inside the centre. One of their doctors has already contracted the virus and is now being treated in Germany.

It’s an impossible choice for these medics, and my frustration quickly pales in comparison to theirs. Luca has taken the family’s details and if a bed becomes free anywhere in or around Freetown, he will let them know.

Luca tells me, what’s needed right now is more international medics and training of local medics, and more isolation centres. Until then – he says – he will have to continue turning patients away, knowing full well they risk going back into the community and infecting yet more people.”
“Then soon after 18:00, just as one of the BBC World presenters is about to introduce me live, my producer, Mark, runs over and tells me some terrible news. Francis Samuka, whom we watched being turned away from a treatment centre yesterday, has died. His family has called and told us he passed away at an isolation centre a few hours ago. His sister could barely speak when she was delivering the news, she was wailing with sorrow. My heart sinks… and then I hear the presenter in my earpiece saying: “Tulip, what’s the latest?”

I explain what’s happened, all the time thinking of Francis’ bloodshot eyes and the look of despair I saw in him just the day before.

I am glad we were able to tell Francis Samuka’s story. It’s important people know this is happening on a daily basis across West Africa. It underlines why governments here and global aid agencies continue to plead for more international help, so patients like Francis can be treated, instead of being turned away.”

Obama virus D68 aka enterovirus affecting thousands of US children, Dr. Claudia Hoyen, Reported cases tip of iceberg, Coincides with entry of illegal alien children, Obama warned by health professionals

“Barack Obama is endangering the children of the US. Where is the outrage?”…Citizen Wells

“Enterovirus 68 was first identified in a California lab in 1962 after four children came down with a severe respiratory illness. Between 1970 and 2005, only 26 cases of enterovirus 68 in the United States were reported to the CDC. Since 2000, the government agency has kept a closer watch and has seen 47 cases, Oberste said. Outbreaks have occurred over the years in Asia and Europe, but it’s still one of the rarest types of enterovirus.”…CNN February 25, 2014

“Respiratory Virus, Enterovirus D68, Likely Infected Thousands But Just Tip of Iceberg

The respiratory virus that’s been sweeping the nation and sending asthmatic children to the hospital may have only been officially reported in 97 children, but experts say that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Dr. Claudia Hoyen said the virus, called enterovirus D68, probably affected thousands of children — and that’s just in Cleveland, where she works. The virus has been reported in 21 states, according to state health departments.

At UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, about 20 children normally go to the intensive care unit each month with respiratory symptoms, said Hoyen, who heads the hospital’s pediatric infection control program. But for the last two months, the hospital’s intensive care unit has treated 80 children per month, she said.

“That’s fourfold over what we would normally get,” Hoyen said.”

“The rare enterovirus starts out like the common cold but can quickly turn more serious — especially in children with asthma. Enteroviruses often appear in the summer and fall, but an outbreak like this hasn’t occurred since the 1960s, Hoyen said.”

Obama opened the floodgates on thousands of illegal aliens and ignored the warnings from healthcare professionals to screen them for disease.

Now he is going to expose thousands of of US soldiers to the Ebola virus which has the potential to expose millions of American civilians to it.

So this is the plan for FEMA camps and Obama martial law.

Sounds more possible now doesn’t it.

From Citizen Wells commenter bob strauss.

“Could be related,
My granddaughter contracted,Hand Foot and Mouth disease a couple of months ago. She lives in north Texas.”

I know a young lady who recently had hand, foot and mouth disease.

Hand, foot and mouth disease is a common malady in the US.

Is it more common now with the spread of illegal alien children in this country?

From WGVU July 24, 2014.

“The Kent County health Department says it is seeing more cases of hand foot and mouth earlier in the year.  Normally an increase in numbers occurs in August and health officials are unsure why they’re seeing an earlier increase.”

Lest you believe that the disease is not serious.

From the CDC.

“Individual cases and outbreaks of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) occur around the world. In countries with temperate (varying) climates, cases occur more often in the spring to fall.

Since 1997, large outbreaks of HFMD caused by enterovirus 71 have been reported mostly in children in east and Southeast Asia. In these outbreaks, most children have typical symptoms of HFMD and recover without health complications. However, a small number of people with this disease develop severe complications requiring hospitalization or even causing death.”

From The Disease Daily April 17, 2009.

“Over 125,000 cases, and 57 fatalities of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) have been reported by China’s Ministry of Health so far this year. It is estimated that 95% of cases of HFMD have been in children less than 5 years old living in the most rural parts of the country. Regions reporting the greatest number of cases include Henan, Shandong, Jiangsu, Guangxi, Anhui, Guangdong, Hebei, Hubei, Hunan, and Zhejiang, all within China’s agricultural belt where healthcare is minimal. Continuing problems, such as the lack of HFMD prevention training for rural doctors, and the existing fear that government officials are hiding the problem and number of deaths, plague the provinces most severely affected. In addition, with the outbreak not expected to peak until May-July, it is likely that the number of cases and fatalities will rise.”

From English.news.cn March 21, 2014.

“Hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD) killed two children within three days in Jinshan District of Shanghai, the district’s health and family planning commission said on Friday.”

“HFMD is caused by a group of viruses known as enterovirus (EV), including EV71, which causes severe complications that can lead to death.”
