The CDC, in response to stalled funding in Congress, has now imported a second pregnant woman to give birth in the USA, in a classic example of “fear mongering” to generate panic amongst the public and in an attempt to spur Congress to throw 1.9 billion U.S. dollars toward a virus now being largely believed as Asymptomatic.
The latest story comes from Florida, which has decided it needs to get a Microcephaly birth after New Jersey announced they had a birth. The reason this is done is so that when funding is doled out, these states with Microcephaly births will receive larger portions of the funding to fight mosquitos and pay for vaccinations and care. The sad thing now is that “experts” are now quoting these births as if they are Zika cases in the USA.
Here are the details on the latest Florida birth from this article from MyFox8.com
Baby with Zika-related microcephaly born in Florida
The Haitian mother had traveled to Florida to deliver the baby, the health department said. Officials are working with the woman’s family to connect them to state support programs.
Microcephaly costs to raise a child range anywhere from $1-10 million, which will be covered entirely by Floridians and Federal Tax programs, unless the Haitian woman has health insurance.
Governor Rick Scott, in clearly his fundraising pledge, issued the following comment:
“It is heartbreaking to learn that a baby has been born with Zika-related microcephaly in our state, and my thoughts and prayers are with the mother and child,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. “Now that a baby has been born in our state with adverse impacts from Zika, it is clear that every available resource is needed to prevent local transmissions in our state.”
Clearly, this is a terrible tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are with the mother and child. But this selective importing of Zika/MC cases is troubling.
The woman was flown in 8 months pregnant to give birth in Florida. This is the second case detailed so far, the first was a sensationalized birth in New Jersey. The CDC is now claiming these births as US Zika cases in an effort to skew the statistics to fit their narrative.
