If you’re of a certain age, you know first hand the terror of tuberculosis. If you’re too young to know, be thankful and read this article very, very carefully.
Reported by Conservative Tribune:
Tuberculosis, a completely curable disease which should have been wiped out with the other plagues, has been on the rise in the United States, and the Commonwealth of Virginia is not doing everything possible to track its origins, according to Breitbart.
Forty-five of our 50 states currently supply immigration status as part of the demographic information reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since foreign-born persons represent 66 percent of U.S. TB cases, every piece of data the CDC can get is critical.
Virginia will not provide immigration status for the foreign-born TB cases that arrive in their state.
In 2002, foreign-born TB cases represented 60 percent of Virginia’s total. Since then, a total of 19,213 refugees have been resettled in the state, according to the Department of State’s interactive website.
