Obama is bringing disease in from every corner of the world. If not illegals he allows to cross our Southern border, it’s Muslims from the Middle East. Now the proverbial chickens are coming home to roost.
Hospital workers at Mercy Hospital, and Abbot Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis-St. Paul have contracted “active tuberculosis,” (TB) according to Breitbart News.
Breitbart earlier reported that 22% of all refugees in Minnesota tested positive for TB in 2014. 27% of that figure comes from Somali refugees.
If Obama could bring the Black Death to our shores, I’m sure he would.
Another reason we need to ban Muslim refugees, not to mention because of the terrorists that come over with them, sharia law, child rape, inability to conform to Western cultural norms, honor killings, beheadings, etc., etc., etc.
Two workers at Mercy Hospital and Abbot Northwestern Hospital, both located in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area and owned by Allina Health, have been diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB).
“I can confirm that one hospital worker at Mercy Hospital and one hospital worker at Abbott Northwestern Hospital were diagnosed with active TB,” Allina Health Vice President of Marketing and Communications David Kanihan tells Breitbart News.
On Friday, Allina Health released the following statement:
In late May, Allina Health began notifying 141 people who had been patients at either Abbott Northwestern Hospital or Mercy Hospital earlier this year that they may have been exposed to tuberculosis (TB). At each location, we learned that a worker who helped deliver care had TB. We carefully and thoroughly reviewed records to identify patients who had been closely enough in contact with these workers to have a potential exposure to TB. All of these patients have or will receive a telephone call and letter notifying them of the exposure and advising them to seek medical attention if they have experienced any symptoms of TB, or to schedule a free blood test for TB at one of our clinics. Allina Health will pay for all testing and any necessary follow up treatment related to the potential exposure
We are very confident that we have identified and are contacting all patients who may have been exposed. Any former patient of either hospital can be confident that if we do not contact you, you are not at risk. Patient safety is our top priority, and we are sorry for any concern this has caused.
The Minnesota Department of Health reported that in 2014, 73 percent of the 147 active cases of TB in Minnesota were foreign born.
“Half of the foreign-born TB cases reported in Minnesota from 2010 through 2014 initially arrived in the U.S. as refugees, and another 27% arrived as immigrants,” the report adds.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area is a center of refugee resettlement.
