    Re: Unidentified Respiratory Virus Likely to Hit Kids Across Country

    I've been saying for decades that there are more important reasons to actually control our borders than the general complaints.

    --epidemics
    --drug cartel violence moving across (esp as more and more states legalize pot)
    --immigration
    --security (terrorism)

    It's uncommon - relatively unknown to people, but not the same thing as 'unidentified'.

    So, it's a known virus that is mutating?

    Could be, but doubtful. For one, the states mentioned are not border states. Were the outbreaks to be mostly in Texas, California, and Arizona, then the likelihood of a connection would be much greater.

    And, just how scary is this new virus anyway? Is it dangerous, or more like a common cold?

    Me thinks that the government dithering on FOI requests for the destinations of all those poor children caught on the border would not fill me with confidence that a border state would be the first place I looked for new disease? Hey, even MA got border kids..

    Well, Colorado, and NC were in there....If I remember, those were two biggies as to where the children were sent...But I could be wrong....WCH has brought it to my attention that this may be a mutating virus.

    Most likely that's what it is. If the outbreak were to have been some disease that we normally immunize children against, then the likelihood would have been that it could have been imported from somewhere that children are not immunized.

    That's wat I heard this morning. Supposedly it was identified back in the 60s in California.

    Those 'kids' were sent to states all over the country. Fact of the matter, the FedGov won't release a list of where they actually went.
