    I was going to post this as a medical heads up, but the article is so PC I could puke! Consider this snip and how it downplays the seriousness of the situation!

    Still, officials say the public is not at risk. Although tuberculosis is contagious, it’s not easy to catch. The disease is spread through the air, through coughing, sneezing or talking, and is transmitted among people who see one other often.

    The outbreak originated overseas. Some of the infected people hailed from a Thai refugee camp where tuberculosis infections were common. When they were resettled in Minnesota, they carried a latent form of the disease that was not infectious. But as they got older and their immune systems weakened, the disease became active, and they passed it along to others.

    Fighting this strain of tuberculosis will require not only time, but money. The average cost of treating a patient with multi-drug resistant tuberculosis is $134,000, and it can go on for more than 18 months.

    Symptoms of tuberculosis include a cough that lasts for three or more weeks, chest pains, coughing up blood, fatigue, night sweats, fever and chills.

    Are we to believe a disease spread through the air, through coughing, sneezing or talking, is not a public health risk?

    Now, the outbreak is the largest of its kind in the nation, infecting 17 people across the state. All but a few of the cases involve Hmong individuals in the Twin Cities’ east metro. Six of the infected are now dead, and three of the deaths are attributed to the disease – but it is not a public health risk?

    Tuberculosis is not be as contagious as the flu, but it is not “hard” to catch either! Whatever you do – don’t make the immigrants look bad and alarm the public!

    Please read the whole article at the following link, but do it with your boots on! Swamp
