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

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 Breitbart, Dr. 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 video, Rockland 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.”

Measles Vaccination: NYC sues 12 for defying mandatory vaccination; Times of Israel fakes photo of baby with measles

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.

Days later, sanity returned when the state’s Supreme Court ruled in favor of parents who challenged the medical state-of-emergency in court. Acting Supreme Court Justice Rolf Thorsen ruled that the ban cannot be enforced and ordered that all children affected by the ban be immediately returned to school and welcomed in public spaces. Thorsen also noted that 166 measles cases in a county population of 330,000 over six months doesn’t constitute an “epidemic” meriting an emergency declaration.

But the state Supreme Court’s ruling didn’t stop New York City (NYC) from doing exactly what Rockland County had done — declaring a medical state-of-emergency.

On April 9, 2019, NYC Commissioner of Health Oxiris Barbot, M.D., declared a “public health emergency” of “an active outbreak of measles” in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York (zip codes 11205, 11206, 11221 and 11249). According to Barbot, “Since September 2018, more than 250 cases of measles have been documented among people living in Williamsburg and that number continues to grow as new cases are still occurring”. (Read Barbot’s order here.)

Barbot ordered mandatory measles vaccination for all residents of Williamsburg.

Her Order specified that all persons, including children older than six months of age, who live, work or reside within the 11205, 11206, 11221 and/or 11249 zip codes and who had not received the MMR vaccine within 48 hours of the Order must be vaccinated against measles “unless such person can demonstrate immunity to the disease or document to the satisfaction of the Department that he or she should be medically exempt from this requirement”.  Failure to comply with the Order is a misdeamenor and violation of §3.05of the NYC Health Code, “for which you may be subject to civil and/or criminal fines, forfeitures and penalties, including imprisonment.”

On April 27, 2019, Activist Post reports that 12 people in Williamsburg were issued civil summonses for not complying with the mandatory measles vaccination order. They must attend a hearing and face a fine of up to $1,000 if found to be noncompliant.

A civil summons is a legal document informing someone that a lawsuit has been filed against him or her, and that a response is required by a set date and time. The document must be served by an officer of the court or an authorized process server.

Meanwhile, Gary King of 153News.net discovered that The Times of Israel engaged in deception in a November 1, 2018 news report on the Israeli Health Ministry considering banning unvaccinated children from schools because of the death from measles of an 18-month-old infant, the “first such incident in 15 years”.

This is the heartbreaking pic that The Times of Israel used for the article:

Note that the caption of the pic says:

The only problem is this: As explained by King’s video (below), the actual iStock image is of a healthy newborn baby, to which The Times of Israel photoshopped fake digital measles.

If you have truth on your side, why is there the need to lie?

NY Rockland County first in nation to declare medical martial law, banning unvaccinated children from public places

Update:

Hallelujah!

On Friday afternoon, April 5, 2019, calling it “arbitrary and capricious,” the New York State Supreme Court struck down Rockland County’s “medical martial law” declared by county executive Ed Day, a former police officer. See the full news story here. (H/t Vivian Lee)

NBC4 New York reports that on March 26, 2019, Rockland County, New York, declared a state of emergency, banning children younger than 18 who are unvaccinated against measles from public places, until they receive the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. Anyone found in violation could face six months in jail and/or a $500 fine. Those unable to be vaccinated for documented and confirmed medical reasons are exempt from the ban.

The New York Times reports that the ban “will be enforced retroactively, with parents facing up to six months in jail or a fine of up to $500, or both, if they are found to have allowed unvaccinated children in public spaces.

The emergency declaration defines “public places” as “a place where more than 10 persons are intended to congregate for purposes such as civic, governmental, social, or religious functions, or for recreation or shopping, or for food or drink consumption, or awaiting transportation, or for daycare or educational purposes, or for medical treatment. A place of public assembly shall also include public transportation vehicles, including but not limited to, publicly or privately owned buses or trains, but does not include taxi or livery vehicles.”

Law enforcement will not be patrolling or asking for vaccination records but those found to be in violation will be referred to the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.

The ban went into effect at midnight, March 27, 2019, and will expire in 30 days.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day, a Republican and former NYPD and Baltimore police officer, said at a press conference: “We believe this to be the first such effort of this kind nationally and the circumstances we face here clearly call for that. Rockland will lead the way in service and safety to the people here.”

The reason? A local outbreak of measles affecting residents in Spring Valley, New Square and Monsey, which has entered its 26th week — the longest since the disease was eradicated in the United States in 2000, according to New York officials. As of March 19, there were 153 confirmed cases.

Day said the outbreak started after seven unvaccinated travelers with measles entered the county early last October. Although unvaccinated students were asked not to attend school, still county officials have been met with “pockets of resistance” from people unwilling to comply with health department advice and this played a part in the decision to enact a ban.

Measles is a highly contagious disease, transmitted by airborne particles, droplets and direct contact with the respiratory secretions of an infected person. Those at highest risk for severe complications include young children, the immuno-compromised and non-immune pregnant women.

Measles typically presents in adults and children as an acute viral illness characterized by fever and generalized rash. The rash usually starts on the face, proceeds down the body and may include the palms and soles. The rash lasts several days. Infected individuals are contagious from 4 days before rash onset through the 4th day after the rash appears. Those who are ill with a fever, rash, or conjunctivitis (red watery eyes) are urged to stay home, not have visitors and not go out in public. The Rockland Health Department said individuals who have symptoms consistent with measles should contact their health care provider, a local clinic or local emergency department before going in person to prevent exposing the illness to others.

Rockland officials encourage everyone, not just children, to be up-to-date with the MMR vaccine to help protect them in case of any future exposure to measles in Rockland.
