Mexican Cholera Outbreak Spreads, Preventive Campaign Launched

Newsmax, October 15, 2013

A cholera outbreak in central Mexico has risen to 159 confirmed cases and spread to four states as well as the capital, the country’s health minister said on Monday.


The east-central state of Hidalgo has been the worst affected with 145 confirmed cases, including the death of a 75-year-old woman. Also affected were the states of Mexico with nine, Veracruz with two, San Luis Potosi with one, and another couple in Mexico City, said Health Minister Mercedes Juan.

Eight in 10 cases have been successfully treated, the minister said, while those infected with the disease in the past several weeks range in age from three to 86.

She added that another 3,075 “probable cases” have been detected.


Cholera is an infectious and sometimes fatal disease of the small intestine, often accompanied by severe nausea and diarrhea.

The outbreak is the first local transmission of cholera recorded since the country’s last cholera epidemic ended in 2001, according to a report last week by the Pan American Health Organization.

    I do hope Romania starts importing mexicans as soon as possible. I feel like we’re missing out on such enrichment…

      Perfect. LOL.

      Don’t give the Mexicans ideas. Those pinatas are sold all over south Texas, but they usually are filled with Mexican candy, not Mexican males. It’s usually car trunks, hollowed out spaces in seats and wheel wells that Mexicans use to hide in.

      Mexicans are not “getting smarter,” our government has surrended to their invasion!

      Mexico should export its surplus population to China for food. “Two-legged mutton” is what the Chinese called humans sold for consumption.

    • Their cuisine is pretty good when the cooks can be bothered to wash their hands.

        I’d rather not take my chances…

    Another Mexican die-sease coming to you soon courtesy of your favorite illegal alien. Our descendants will say, “They should have mowed their own yards.”

      It’s all part of agenda 21 and depopulation schemes.

        I would dare say so’s miscegenation.

        I read somewhere that if you mix the races, and the mulattoes mate with other mulattoes, after four generations you’ll have sterility.

          Brazil seems quite fertile.

    William Wallace could not do everything by himself. Nor could George Washington.

    Perhaps Bossman will stop by to remind us what a blessing these dirty spics are.

    Read Frosty Wooldridge’s columns too. He knows the immigration game and how devastating it is to our nation. We need many more Jared Taylors and Wooldridges who are stating the obvious. It’s only Washington who believes the invasion is good for our country…it’s good only for them and the businesses who hire illegals.
