Apparently, a new strain Meningitis 'W' which was previously unheard of in Britain, is rising and sweeping across University students.
We have previously written about the increase in other diseases which were virtually eradicated in this country (see blog, Measles and Whooping cough 26/12/15), but are now on the increase again.
I'm sure we wrote about the rise of Meningitis some time ago as well.
Tuberculosis is a classic example of this phenomena, whereby previously virtually eradicated diseases are now prevalent again.
After a long Public Health vaccination campaign for children from which we all bear the injection scar on the arm, it was deemed so rare and of so little risk, that routine vaccinations at Schools were actually abolished some time ago.
However, we also know that when any immigration controls that did exist were dropped, people from Eastern Europe where TB is more common, actually used that specifically to come here for treatment, courtesy of the WHS (World Health Service); aka the NHS.
And now, hey presto, TB is on the rise again.
The public Health Department have said that since 2009 Meningitis W has significantly increased, having been previously virtually unheard of in Britain.
Of course they're all keeping up the pretence of having no idea how or why this has happened and appear to wonder where this could have possibly emanated from.
Nothing even remotely resembling a mere suggestion that it could have something to do with the large increase in foreign visitors to Universities or indeed, the exponential increase of immigrants from parts of the world where this apparently virulent form of the disease is rife.
Yet the very admittance that it was previously unknown of in this country, gives the game away that it must indeed have been carried in to the country, as obviously we are an island nation.
We would venture to suggest it came from somewhere.
There is an obvious correlation between both the re-emergence of certain diseases and the appearance of new ones.
And as we know, since there are no checks on arrivals, let alone any restrictions whatsoever on travel from basically anywhere in the world through the back door of Europe where they have literally no border controls whatsover, it's not surprising.
It's not rocket science.
But of course, no one will say it.
Because no doubt... err, you guessed it.
That would be 'racist'.
