Rush Limbaugh speculates illegal alien children from Central America may have spread Enterovirus D68 or EV-D68, Citizen Wells experience in Honduras, Obama won’t tell anybody where he put them
“On August 19, 2014, CDC was notified by Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, of an increase (relative to the same period in previous years) in patients examined and hospitalized with severe respiratory illness, including some admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit. An increase also was noted in detections of rhinovirus/enterovirus by a multiplex polymerase chain reaction assay in nasopharyngeal specimens obtained during August 5–19. On August 23, CDC was notified by the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital in Illinois of an increase in patients similar to those seen in Kansas City. To further characterize these two geographically distinct observations, nasopharyngeal specimens from most of the patients with recent onset of severe symptoms from both facilities were sequenced by the CDC Picornavirus Laboratory. Enterovirus D68* (EV-D68) was identified in 19 of 22 specimens from Kansas City and in 11 of 14 specimens from Chicago. Since these initial reports, admissions for severe respiratory illness have continued at both facilities at rates higher than expected for this time of year. Investigations into suspected clusters in other jurisdictions are ongoing.”…CDC September 8, 2014

A few weeks after 9/11, I traveled with a group of Baptists and helped build a church in Honduras.
Since I speak Spanish, I mingled and conversed with many children.
Midway through the 9 day visit I got sick. It started like a cold and progressed to feeling like the flu.
I was told that Americans often caught this disease that we were not accustomed to being exposed to.
By the time I got back, I had the initial stage of pneumonia.
What Rush Limbaugh is proposing is plausible.

“Mysterious Virus Hits Kids in Midwest; Obama Won’t Tell Us Where Illegal Alien Kids Were Sent
RUSH: Now, moving on to this “Bizarre lung virus hospitalizing hundreds of kids across the Midwest. About 450 children have been treated at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. Virus comes on as a cold before developing into respiratory distress. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention testing whether it is an Enterovirus D68 or EV-D68, a respiratory infection with varying symptoms and levels of intensity. There is no proper treatment or vaccine for EV-D68. Doctors have been treating severe cases with ventilation. Outbreaks also reported in Colorado, Illinois and Ohio.
In other words, “Hospitals across the Midwest are being inundated with children infected by a bizarre virus, which first comes on as a common cold before developing into severe respiratory distress.” They have no clue.”
“A bunch of people want to know, okay, we had these kids cross the border from El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, wherever they came from, Central America. They were processed real quickly. Gotten in, gotten out and they’ve been distributed all over the country. And Obama won’t tell anybody where he put them.”
