Is the Philippines the source of the Disney measles outbreak?

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Scientists believe the recent measles outbreak in the US that began in adjacent Disney parks in California may have come from the Philippines.

Health officials have found that this recent measles strain has the same genetic type as the one found in the Philippines, raising the possibility that it came from there.

In North America last year, doctors linked at least three outbreaks to the Philippines where there were 53,000 confirmed cases.

The North America outbreaks were in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ohio, and in Toronto, Canada.

So far this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has counted 121 measles cases in 17 states, with other confirmed cases in Mexico and Canada.

Despite the possibility that the outbreak came from the Philippines, scientists still don’t know exactly how the disease was brought into the United States.

    Probably came from the “squatters area” where sanitation and hygiene are questionable. As far as transmission, it’s definitely from non-law abiding sneaky illegals…

    Now you understand why the extreme media blame PH as the source of measles outbreak in the US. The 60,000 Central American illegal,unvaccinated, illiterate OBAMA kids should NOT to be blame. They can not be deported, PH illegals are to be blame,and they are next in line for deportation, as priority,to minimized the spread of measles. Obama does not trust the Pinoys being “balimbing”, today they are Democrat, onced they start paying taxes, Pinoy turn Republican because they hate so much Democrats who are lazy, waiting for foods stamps and other welfare benefits from hard working Pinoys.72% on Hispanic citizen in the US depend on Welfare benefits.CDC scientist had forgotten that most of the Hospitals in the infectious diseases ward are being manned by PH nurses, who never complain even thought they lack protection and training on infectious control.

    Illegals who entered the United States, regardless of their country of origin, are in no doubt the primary causes of measles cases. Why, it is simply because of not complying to the medical requirements prior to arriving here in this country.
