CDC and HHS are dumping illegal immigrants (and legitimate refugees) into Wisconsin's school system with seemingly little to no effective preventative medical care, and as such the CDC sees this as an opportunity to use an undisclosed school system in Wisconsin as a Pandemic Canary in a Coal Mine for advanced warning of a Pandemic outbreak.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases
(NCEZID), Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ),
requests approval of a new information collection to better
understand the triggers, timing and duration of the use of
school related measures for preventing and controlling the
spread of influenza during the next pandemic.
The information collection for which approval is sought is
in accordance with DGMQ/CDC’s mission to reduce morbidity and mortality in mobile populations, and to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases within the United States. Insights gained from this information collection will assist in the planning and implementation of CDC
Pre-Pandemic Guidance on the use of school related measures,
including school closures, to slow transmission during an
Odds are that the same thing is happening in other states, but CDC apparently thinks Wisconsin has the most suitable "mobile" population. In that regard, news media has been reporting that thousands of children of Central America are being sent to Wisconsin. The CDC plans to monitor approximately 1500 of these kids.
"Milwaukee, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin might end up housing some of the thousands of children who are now flooding into the country from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has asked the Catholic Charities organization to look for places that can handle the unaccompanied children. Father David Bergner of Catholic Charities in Milwaukee says he's been asked to find potential sites that could hold 100-to-300 kids."
In short, what this public health debacle means is that you really really don't won't your kids in that school system; the CDC is eying it for a reason. A reason that might not exist if CDC and HHS took better preventative action before dumping these kids into a school system like they were swabbing bacteria into a petri dish. Even in the 1900's they at least knew enough to run new comers through a quarantine-able Ellis ISLAND before sending them on their merry way.
Heck, maybe its possible the CDC is just nostalgic for all those diseases public health wiped out of the United States in the 1900's. Maybe its all just part of some sort of EPA mandate to reintroduce endangered bacterial and viral fauna back into their old stomping ground. After all, whats the worse that could happen except increased job security for the CDC.
