From illegals to you, dengue fever

The hemorrhagic form of dengue fever is on the rise with an increase by more than 600 percent in Mexico since 2001. Hemorrhagic is defined as ‘spontaneous bruising, bleeding from mucosa, gingiva, injection sites, etc.; vomiting blood, or bloody diarrhea.’ Sounds lovely.

According to this report, “Dengue has been found along the U.S.-Mexico border, where 151 classic and 46 hemorrhagic cases were recorded last year in the Gulf state of Tamaulipas, south of Texas.” There is no vaccine and no drug to treat hemorrhagie dengue fever.

Dengue The deadly hemorrhagic form of dengue fever is increasing dramatically in Mexico, and experts predict a surge throughout Latin America fueled by climate change, migration and faltering mosquito eradication efforts.More alarming is that a deadly hemorrhagic form of the disease, which adds internal and external bleeding to the symptoms – is becoming more common. It accounts for one in four cases in Mexico, compared with one in 50 seven years ago, according to Mexico’s Public Health Department.

While hemorrhagic dengue is increasing around the developing world, the problem is most dramatic in the Americas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Like a poster child for the downside of humanity’s impact on the planet, dengue is driven by longer rainy seasons some blame on climate change, as well as disposable plastic packaging and other trash that collects water. Migrants and tourists – including the many thousands of Americans expected for spring break this year – carry new strains of the virus across national borders, where mosquitoes can spread the disease.

The CDC says there’s no drug to treat hemorrhagic dengue, …

The Canadian Embassy in Mexico City issued an alert about dengue after five Canadians were sickened in Puerto Vallarta earlier this year. Acapulco, a city of 700,000, has documented 549 cases of classic and hemorrhagic dengue in the first two months of 2007, up from just 86 for the same period last year. (read it all here)

On a side note, the Minuteman Project is activating on the border again, but they will have supervision this Spring, … the ACLU will be there watching. The ACLU wants to make sure the illegals are treated with respect and the rights they deserve.

Dengue This infectious disease is manifested by a sudden onset of fever, with severe headache, muscle and joint pains (myalgias and arthralgias — severe pain gives it the name break-bone fever or bonecrusher disease) and rashes; the dengue rash is characteristically bright red petechia and usually appears first on the lower limbs and the chest – in some patients, it spreads to cover most of the body. There may also be gastritis with some combination of associated abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.Some cases develop much milder symptoms, which can, when no rash is present, be misdiagnosed as a flu or other viral infection. Cases of DHF also show higher fever, haemorrhagic phenomena, thrombocytopenia and haemoconcentration. A small proportion of cases lead to dengue shock syndrome (DSS) which has a high mortality rate.

As the author of the article notes, ‘Paraguay declared a state of emergency in March after 17 people died of hemorrhagic dengue and an estimated 400,000 were infected with the milder “classic” form of the disease — Someone can be in Paraguay, where there is a big outbreak, with type-one virus, and six hours later be in Mexico.’
