Measles Outbreak in Memphis Began at Mosque

by
May 11, 2016

The first reported case of a person with measles in the recent Memphis outbreak, which now numbers seven confirmed cases, was at a local mosque on April 15, according to the Shelby County Health Department.

“The first public place where there was a public exposure potentially [to measles] was the Masjid Al-Noor Mosque on April 15,” Dr. Alisa Haushalter, Director of the Shelby County Health Department, tells Breitbart News.

“The mosque is one location we know that individuals who were infectious were during their infectious period, but that’s not necessarily where the first case occurred. I don’t want you to draw conclusions without sufficient information,” she added.

Haushalter acknowledged, however, that the measles outbreak could have originated with an unvaccinated for measles adult or child brought to Tennessee under the federal refugee resettlement program, something she called “a possibility amongst many.”

There had been no reported cases of measles in Shelby County for the previous 24 months, according to a spokesperson for the Tennessee Department of Health. “There have been nine previous cases of measles in the entire state of Tennessee in the past 12 years,” WREG reported.

    I thought Tennessee was a good country boy state, didn’t know they allowed mosques.

    How many diseases are they going to reintroduce into this country. We can’t forget the illegals coming across out southern borders..They also bring in diseases that have been eradicated here for years. Got your shots people

  • Rob1911a1

    Nobody seems to be making DUMBOEARS OBEY 1952 Federal Law PROHIBITING the immigration of those with the express desire to overthrow the U.S.!!!!!! The so-called “Syrian Refugees” (why aren’t they taken in by other Arab/Muslim countries) are in direct contradiction to Federal Law, since the FBI has already identified over 1,000 as Muslim terrorists? Why can’t we get this dirtbag impeached? And fuck you too, Zuckerber!

  • justinwachin

    Measles probably isn’t the only thing Muslims are bringing to America. Was this some sort of plot to create a measles pandemic which failed because the terrorists didn’t get the infected people spread around the nation fast enough?

  • Wambli525

    ” … the measles outbreak could have originated with an unvaccinated for measles adult or child brought to Tennessee under the federal refugee resettlement program … ,”
    Another good reason to stop the mass importation of foreigners that have no documentation, record of immunizations or certifiable background that they are not a terrorist plant.

    And our Muslim President wants us to accept 200,000 plus into our country. He is an IDIOT !!!!!!!!

    ALERT! AMERICA!! Not only Measles, & Ebola, there is a more serious problem coming in with this new wave of illegal immigrants who are carrying a disease called Leishmaniasis, as skin eating disease, with out a cure. Already transmitted to Lebanon and Turkey with the refugees from Syria. I emailed Texas Senator Beto O’Rourke, lastnight and Texas Governor Abbot, see what plans are in place for such non-curable disease. Which I am sure…. THIS IS WHAT WE CALL THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND! At the expense of OUR Country, what we used to call AMERICA, which is now America….. AND WILL BE the Land of the INFECTED AND DYING!! And I am SURE, reason for the PIMA Camps, Body Bags, Coffins, and all this other Death materials being piled up here is in the States……………..FACT!! REPORT FOLLOWS: Thank You, for your Time, GOD BLESS, and GOD HELP US …………………………………EXCLUSIVE – Syrian Refugees Bringing Flesh- Eating Disease into U.S.?

    JERUSALEM – There is a risk that Middle Eastern refugees entering the U.S. could be infected with a flesh-eating disease that is sweeping across Syria.

    Health agencies confirmed that Syrian refugees have transported leishmaniasis to Lebanon and Turkey, where it has been difficult to manage and treat.

    Compounding the problem, patients can be infected with the parasitic disease without showing symptoms for weeks, months, or even years, and an asymptomatic patient most likely doesn’t know that he or she is a carrier.

    This means the health screening process for refugees could miss the disease entirely.

    Breitbart Jerusalem spoke with healthcare experts, including an epidemiologist from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC’s Immigrant, Refugee, and Migrant Health Branch, which is responsible for guiding the medical screening of the Syrian refugees seeking to enter the U.S.

    Volcano-like ulcers

    Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites. It is spread almost entirely by sandflies, including those present in the U.S.

    There are three main types of the disease: cutaneous, mucocutaneous, and visceral leishmaniasis.

    Cutaneous is the most common form among Syrians. It manifests in skin sores that typically develop within a few weeks or months of a sand fly bite. The sores can initially appear as bumps or nodules and may evolve into volcano-like ulcers.

    Mucocutaneous leishmaniasis causes skin ulcers like the cutaneous form, as well as mucosal ulcers that usually damage the nose and mouth.

    Visceral leishmaniasis, which has also been found among Syrian refugees, is the most serious form and can be fatal. It damages internal organs, usually the spleen and liver, and also affects bone marrow.

    Refugees transmit to Lebanon, Turkey; threat to Europe, U.S.

    Last year, the CDC published a study of a September 2012 outbreak among Syrian refugees. The investigation found:

    Fifty-nine percent of patients had more than one of the following: disease compromising the function of vital sensory organs (eye, ear, nose, and mouth) (27%); lesions of greater than 5 cm in diameter (49%); disfiguring facial lesions (37%); special forms, such as sporotrichoid or lymphangietic with satellite lesions (9%); and lesions present for more than 12 months’ duration.

    Earlier this month, the news media hyped a story that the Islamic State was causing the spread of leishmaniasis, because – as the U.K.’s Mirror newspaper put it – militants were “slaughtering innocent people and dumping their bodies in the street.”

    Leishmaniasis has been spreading like wildfire in Syria since the health system collapsed in rebel-held territories in 2011. By 2012, there were already 52,982 documented cases of the disease in Syria

    Also in 2012, the CDC documented that “migration patterns of refugees with cutaneous leishmanias is were identified in Lebanon,” with the health agency producing a helpful illustration showing the disease’s “movement from cities in Syria to regions in Lebanon.”

    The peer-reviewed medical journal Pathogens noted that Lebanon had no cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis prior to 2008 and only “sporadic cases in the following years.”

    After the arrival of refugees, 1,033 cases were confirmed by 2012, “96.6% (998) of which were among Syrian refugees.” Writing at AHC Media, a publication for healthcare professionals, Dr. Philip R. Fischer, Professor of Pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic, documented the spread to Turkey as well:

    As Syrians leave their homeland, they sometimes carry their germs with them. There have been dramatic increases in the number of cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis in southeastern Turkey. In Turkey, 69% of cutaneous leishmaniasis patients are Syrians living in tent cities.

    Fischer also noted a significant risk of the disease spreading to Europe with the arrival of Syrian refugees.

    As recent news reports have shown, many Syrian refuges don’t stay in Turkey and Lebanon. There is a significant risk that cutaneous leishmaniasis will reemerge in southern Europe, where the natural vector of the L. tropica parasitealready exists.

    Leishmaniasis has been endemic to Syria for centuries. Fischer noted that in 1756 a British physician “referred to the illness as Aleppo boil and Aleppo evil.” However, it was minimized over time due to the advent of insecticides.

    Medical screening

    Refugees who enter the U.S. must undergo medical screening according to protocols established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC. Each refugee must submit to a physical examination, including a skin test and possibly a chest x-ray to check for tuberculosis,as well as a blood test for syphilis.

    The blood tests do not currently look for leishmaniasis. Clearly, an attending doctor could easily spot a patient with obvious skin ulcers. However, leishmaniasis cannot be detected upon physical examination if the patient is asymptomatic, as can be the case for years.

    Dr. Heather Burke, an epidemiologist from the CDC’s Immigrant, Refugee, and Migrant Health Branch, explained to Breitbart News that there is generally a window of three to six months from the initial physical examination until a refugee departs for the U.S.

    She said a medical examination is valid for six months, and explained that patients undergo a second examination just prior to departure – a quicker “fitness to fly” screening. While she conceded that this final examination is not thorough, she said it would pick up any visible skin lesions. Burke told Breitbart Jerusalem that she is not aware of a single case of leishmaniasis entering the U.S. via Syrian refugees.

    Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, warned that “most doctors in the U.S. know nothing about leishmaniasis.”

    “We’d all need to refer patients to tropical diseases specialists,” she told Breitbart Jerusalem. “The treatments are toxic and expensive, and some are not widely available.”

    For Orient, the only sensible public health policy is “for all refugees to pass through a quarantined place like Ellis Island.”

    “Officials need to know where they’ve been and what diseases occur there. We need sophisticated, reliable screening methods and excellent vector control in any areas where refugees stay.”

            Bull manure Doc, how far back in history do you have to go to even try to attempt to equalize sick, insane Islamic belief, with any other religion in the 20th or 21st century. That garbage no longer flies. Get over it.
            Every other religion is a religion.
            Islam is a political agenda hidden under the guise of a so-called “religion”.

          • DOC

            How about Jones down in the jungle or the guy in Waco Tx or all the big time TV super church they spit out more garbage then be picked up.

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            Yes what about them. Good to see that you picked a couple of real winners there. Both were cults, based in a religion, but cults just the same. Nice to note, that you have just identified for yourself that Islam is in fact a cult, and not so much a religion.
            Even so, the Jones Town People drank the Kool-Aide, and 900 died, and the “King David” group went out in a hail of bullets, and fire.
            However neither one of those groups, [cults] ran around beheading people, murdering, raping, pillaging and destroying, unlike Islam, which is very much into that form of entertainment.

          • DOC

            First, all the Jones were not suicide some were murdered we lost a politician that was killed at the airport. What about the Oklahoma bomber. Look we got a problem with isis but we should not say all are bad we got plenty of nuts that are Americans.

            Doc – the guy and his followers in Waco WHO WERE SLAUGHTERED ILLEGALLY by a government run amok? However kooky there beliefs, they did not act illegally (and firing on home invader – the law enforcement officers used a ‘no knock’ warrant, and all the Dravidians knew was that they were under fire; they had every legal right to fire back, not knowing who was shooting at them or why). If an LEO bursts through your door without a valid warrant being declared, YOU would have every right to use lethal force against what appeared to be a home invasion.

            I guess you don’t know that in Islam Christ is thought of as a prophet and his mother Mary is mentioned more times then in the Bible so a true Muslim is not likely to object to Merry Christmas. I believe it is important to correct people when they make statements that are untrue so one again I believe I need to correct your lack of knowledge and educate you to facts. It’s not your fault that you have been given false information but it is your fault to go on believing it once you have been shown the facts of the matter. Beating people up is childish you know.

      • Rob1911a1

        The Constitution (the Law of the Land) commands the government to protect our borders. Next, 1940 Federal Law, written by the Democrats and signed into law by FDR, SPECIFICALLY directs the government to find and deport illegal aliens (the illegal central and south Americans). 1952 Federal Law specifically directs the Federal government to NOT allow subversives who advocate the overthrow of our nation into our country (the Syrians). In other words, the Federal government (the Democrats, mainly) are ignoring all three fundamental laws REQUIRING our nation to deport illegals and to deport subversives.

        • reggie

      But there is likely more out there with this bunch including illegal aliens. Point here is our government is not protecting our legal citizens like it should both morally and lawfully. Letting in unvetted aliens with obviously poor checks for health and terrorist potenial indicates there is a very low standard with this administration. That is not only frightening but enormously aggrevating. We have no control over any of this and we should trust this incompetence? Not! This one may be minor, the next will not be. Typoid and any number of serious illnesses that are resistant to antibiotics are out there. Diseases we erradicated here are still out there and BO just opened the damn door for all to come here against our laws in a totally unfettered fleckless illegal edict.

      Well certainly THIS Administration knows but WON’T TELL …

      • Ken says

        Keep it simple – they pay for a full set of immunization shots before the proceed to verification of identity and origin. If either is not 100% they go back on the boat and off US Shores.

        • Rob1911a1

          Uh, not sure where you get your info from, Ken, but (having had a TS/SCI clearance for years, and spouse still does) nothing could be further from the facts. That is DUMBOEARS propaganda, but not in fact true.

          • Ken says

            Hey Rob – What I said in the post above is what I propose as a simple way to handle large numbers of immigrants – stay on the boat 10 days after getting the shots – time for immunity to be established and provide quarantine. If they don’t buy the shot – they don’t get off the boat. After the Quarantine they go to identification verification – if that is not 100% cleared they go back on the boat and are returned to where ever. Pinocchio Nose King Bo does NOT like this in any way.

    Were there Muslims in this country before Obama?

    • Jeanne Stotler

      Yes, but not as many, back before and during the Ellis Island period, ALL immigrants were held in isolation, given vaccines ( those known then) before they could continue on to their destination. Those who were not healthy and carried diseases like TB were deported. We also have this “Anti-Vac” movement, unfortunately there are some who have adverse reactions to vaccines, my personal thought is that TOO MANY SHOTS are give at ONE TIME, but if in Public school they should be vaccinated or other parents made aware that those kids are in the school. Measles , 7 day type, and German ones are contagious before symptoms appear. This is with most childhood diseases.

      • DOC

        I was born 1933 and I caught measles like all my friends’ that and mumps was a what kids looked forward too.Ice Cream and jello. My kids got all the vaccines. After WW11 there were plenty in the country 20 years there were plenty in the country my point is it did not start with Obama.

        • gerryg

          But his reckless policies started with obama and his so called advisers that surround him. They are nothing but a bunch of know clueless intellectuals

          • DOC

            They said the same thing about social security.

          • gerryg

            We aren’t talking about SSI. Typical liberal response, change the subject instead of the addressing the problem.

          • DOC

            I was talking about social security that I paid into for over 50 years. Now how come you think I am a liberal because I ask questions.

        • Jeanne Stotler

          I had Measles and so did my older kids, 7 days in a dark room, BUT we do have MMR vaccine today and contrary to what a lot of people spout out, Measles can be fatal and it can also cause Mental retardation from Enchephalitis, My aunt had Measles at age 5, she never mentally went beyond that, and she got the best medical care available, from her grandfathers (2) and Uncle all M.D.’s. Again I am against GIVING MULTIPLE shots at one time, little bodies can only absorb so much live viruses at a time.

          • DOC

            I don’t like the multiple shot I Got multiple shots when I went overseas and was sick for three days

          • Jeanne Stotler

            And you were an adult, just imagine the same in a Baby under 20 lbs., I had some shots going into Nursing school, some we don’t give anymore and I was sick and my arm swelled as well,

          • DOC

            I believe I Said I do not like multiple shota

        • gerryg

          The measles may have increased after WWII, I don’t remember, but it’s was controlled by policies that were implement before obama was born. The current increase in cases surrounding the influx of so called refuges under obamas policies or lack there off concerning the processing of these refuges. The influx of large numbers of uncontrolled refuges is a problem whether they are Muslim or Hispanic refuges, Under obama they are not properly screened.

          • DOC

            I got measles 1938. Are you saying that Obama tells the screeners don’t check the Muslims and Hispanics?

          • gerryg

            No I don’t think obama or the political appointees that oversee the refuge entry programs know what they are doing. Their only concern is to process as may as possible to keep obomas target to achieve a new bunch of supporters to become greatful to

  • Climax

    Typical of this administration, not running people through the proper checks and balances which allows more than just health problems being imported or even terrorists. We will not know the full ramifications of this follie for decades

    • Peter Osborne
