One of the many benefits of multiculturalism is that European horizons are being broadened by exotic diseases:
Infectious diseases which were thought to be on the decline are now re-emerging as refugees carry bugs and viruses across borders, according to data presented at a major microbiology conference [Sunday].
Migrants have an increased chance of carrying HIV, tuberculosis, shigella, scabies and other parasitic infections, experts said.
A series of papers presented at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease conference in Amsterdam outlined the new risk of infectious diseases. …
A record 1.25million asylum seekers arrived in the EU last year – more than double the 564,000 who arrived in 2014 – and these figures are likely to be the tip of the iceberg because they cover only official claims. In the UK, 38,878 asylum seekers lodged claims last year – up 20 per cent on 2014 and the highest number since 2004.
Needy welfare colonists from throughout the Middle East and Africa often show up with nothing but the clothes on their backs — and the culture in their heads, and the Third World diseases in their bodies, which often include “superbugs.”
Many of these superbugs – such as MRSA, salmonella and certain strains of ecoli – are rapidly becoming untreatable with antibiotics.
Chagas disease is another favorite with the refugees.
A study of 700 people in Denmark found that refugees were more than five times as likely to have HIV as Danish-born citizens. The researchers said that refugees were also more likely to seek medical help at a late stage, increasing the risk of transmission.
At least they will get in the habit of having their extravagantly expensive diseases treated sooner, once they get used to Europeans picking up the tab for it.
HIV, tuberculosis, Shigella, scabies, methicillin-resistant S. aureus, salmonella, E. coli, Chagas disease, and all the rest make great metaphors for the longer-lasting figurative diseases being imported, such as Islam, terrorism, poverty, and social strife.
