Open borders? Ebola spreads to Uganda

"Health officials have long feared that this outbreak of Ebola virus could pass over the porous border into Uganda. The border is over 500 miles long and many of the crossings are informal - sometimes just a couple of planks laid across a shallow river."
Does this sound like a border near you?.

    Nearly 40% of the invaders crossing our southern border are from Africa. The claim is that we don't have to worry about Ebola because while the disease takes hold in three weeks, these travelers have been on their way for months.

    However, we are seeing diseases cropping up that have never been a concern for us before, and some that we had vanquished over a century ago, thanks to the invaders. Some from Central and South America are carriers of parasites in the blood for yellow fever, which could be picked up by mosquitoes and spread, while African travelers could be harboring malaria.

    The same pack of imbeciles who want the invasion to continue are creating municipal environments out of the Middle Ages, where the trash in homeless camps are breeding grounds for rats, with bubonic plague now cropping up. If the bubonic plague mutates to its deadlier cousin, pneumonic plague, the disease will spread like wildfire. Poop maps will be replaced with corpse maps.

      Would not all of those Africans crossing across our southern border not have started an Ebola epidemic in Mexico long before they got to the border? Perhaps there is a real coverup south of the border that lets the open border people feel safe?

    There is a real purpose in borders. We put fences and walls around our houses to prevent dangerous animals (and humans) from harming us. Borders around cities and nations are really extensions of the same idea. Given the invisibility of virus threats, we need borders even more now.

    It is not only the border invasion that could spread infectious diseases but where I live in Arizona a wall should be built to stop Californians who might be infected with typhus. I wouldn't be surprised that with all the homeless and mentally ill people living on the streets of LA & SF contract bubonic plague. So, there is a possibility of plague type illnesses could spread from two directions.

    If I read the news alert correctly they (health officials) are concerned abut Buboonic Plague in LA. Is thiss true? I know some areas of Colorado has an issue with it (animal transmission from deep woods areas but LA doesn't have too many forests growing with wild animals living in them.
    If true this is really spooky.

    "In Uganda, the battle against Ebola will be determined by the government's ability to win the confidence of the people. The country is not strife-torn like its volatile neighbour, and has a more robust health system. For the time being, at least, there is hope the disease will be contained in Uganda.

    Olivia Acland is DR Congo correspondent for the Economist"

    The Economist has become a leftist propaganda outlet.

    This writer is stating absolute rubbish in the conclusion: hoping Uganda stops Ebola? With the infrastructure and gov ineptness? How?

    Sounds like Hussein when he laughed off caution and brought Ebola patients into this country. At the time I saw a clip of a laughing (cow) Rachel Maddow at the problem as well.
