Schumer Concerned World Cup Fans Returning To U.S. Might Bring Back Mosquito-Borne Virus

June 22, 2014

ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is asking the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to issue a health alert to medical professionals in New York and around the country for identifying, treating and containing the chikungunya, or “chik-v,” virus, a mosquito-borne illness that causes fevers, joint and muscle pain, headaches, joint swelling and rashes.

One of the mosquito species carrying the virus and responsible for disease transmission is prevalent in Brazil.

“We have to prevent the spread of this virus before it reaches the United States in large numbers,” Schumer told reporters, including 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck, on Sunday.

“The problem here is the World Cup gives the unfortunate opportunity for the virus to spread among people from all nations of the world who are together,” Schumer said.

But illegal aliens pouring over our southern border are not a problem. Especially, illegal alien children, who are just walking Petri dishes.

The virus is rarely fatal, but it can create arthritic-like joint pain that become chronic. Schumer said there have been three confirmed cases in New York and 25 in Florida, and numbers could increase dramatically with the return of soccer fans from the World Cup…

Schumer is also calling on U.S. Department of Homeland Security to increase border safeguards, citing the developing threat in the Caribbean, where more than 100,000 people have been affected.

And never mind that Chuck Schumer is the single biggest proponent for an open border and amnesty in Congress. Just as he was the biggest proponent for the so-called Reagan amnesty.

But, sure, they will increase the medical safeguards on the border. What else have they got to do down there?

    Cry me a river, Schumer. Just fumagate the luggage cabin and all is fine..

    Anyone who can afford to go to the games can afford mosquito repellant and it’s not fatal.

    ObamaCare will treat it.
