All sorts of mysterious problems keep cropping up. Like a spike in syphilis cases.
According to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), syphilis cases increased 17 percent in the past year and 80 percent in the past five years.
With Congress set to cut funding for workers who fight sexually transmitted infections, experts warn the record-setting epidemic isn’t likely to abate.
Syphilis was nearly eradicated in the 1990s in the U.S, but it’s come roaring back largely due to years of underfunding public health, but also because of increasing rates of substance use and the mental health crisis.
Why specifically would there have been a massive spike in the last 5 years? What might have been happening around that time?
I already broke that down in my recent Open Borders is a Disease article.
The number of syphilis cases doubled in Texas in five years. They’re up by 4,000 in just one year. What possible phenomenon in a border state might have caused such a drastic increase in so few years? Was it a sudden massive rise in racism or a massively open border?
In 2022, Texas reported 950 congenital syphilis cases accounting for nearly half the total in the entire country.
Arizona had the nation’s highest rate where the number of babies born with syphilis shot up from 17 in 2016 to 219 in 2022.
New Mexico had a 660% increase in congenital syphilis, for the second highest rate in the country for both syphilis and congenital syphilis, with 76 cases in 2022.
Now watch how the “experts” spin that.
The CDC reported 207,255 total syphilis cases across nearly every demographic group and region in 2022… it’s a disease that impacts red and blue states alike
Now let’s look at the real numbers.
California is in sixth place where congenital syphilis cases rose 1,500% with 528 cases reported in 2019. “Hispanic babies made up nearly 50% of all cases” and the epicenter of the outbreak is in Fresno.
Who knows why the massive outbreak in congenital syphilis cases was clustered around border states during the same period when a mass migration of illegal aliens was underway.
None of the billions we spend on the CDC, the NIH and all the other acronym public health bureaucracies could explain why congenital syphilis in the Northeast only amounted to 121 cases in 2021, 296 cases in the Midwest, but 939 cases in the West and 1,499 cases in the South.
Why does Alabama have 37 cases while Arizona had 181 cases in 2021? What does Arizona have that Alabama lacks?
Clearly, Alabama is funding public health just the right amount while Arizona is underfunding it. Is that how this works?
Open borders spread disease, but no one wants to talk about it.
