CDC and NY Rockland County identify ‘people from overseas’ as source of measles resurgence

by Dr. Eowyn

In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control believed measles to have been eradicated in the United States.

Beginning in 2008, however, cases began to climb. In 2014, the number of measles exploded to over 600, more than all reported cases between 2009 and 2013. The CDC called it a 20-year high.

On March 26, 2019, New York’s Rockland County was the first in the U.S. to declare a medical martial law via an executive order by county executive and former police officer Ed Day, banning from public places and even threatening to imprison children who were not vaccinated against measles.

Less than 2 weeks later, on April 9, 2019, New York City declared a “public health emergency” of an active outbreak of measles in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Mandatory measles vaccination was ordered for all residents and workers in Williamsburg. Those who fail to be vaccinated within 48 hours of the order committed a misdeamernor in violation of §3.05of the NYC Health Code, for which they would be “subject to civil and/or criminal fines, forfeitures and penalties, including imprisonment.”

The media and public sentiments blame “anti-vaxxers” for the resurgence of measles. But we have good reasons to suspect the source to be illegal aliens, given reports of the diseases they carry. Indeed, none other than the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Rockland County executive Ed Day admitted this, although they used the euphemisms of “people from overseas” and “foreign travelers”.

To begin, in 2015, the CDC attributed an outbreak of measles in Disney theme parks to a person from “overseas”. As reported by BreitbartDr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC said:

“We don’t know exactly how this outbreak started but we do think it was likely a person infected with measles overseas. We assume that someone got infected with measles overseas, visited Disneyland park, and spread the disease to others.”

More recently, in a Fox News videoRockland County executive Ed Day also identified “people from overseas” as the source of the measles outbreak. Day was asked by the Fox News reporter why he took the step to declare a medical state-of-emergency. Day answered:

“I took the step because we’ve been battling this for six months. Six months ago, we had seven infected individuals come from overseas to the local area in Rockland County.

In the video below, Day once again identified the seven infected “travelers” as the source of the measles outbreak:

Last year, not just one, but seven unvaccinated travelers diagnosed with measles came into our county between October 1 and October 17. Led to 153 confirmed cases and this is the longest outbreak in the U.S. due to measles — a disease that was officially eradicated in 2000.”
