The nassau county department of health issued this alert around 11 AM today at a press conference ...this article, which is the first and only about the alert, was published at 9:29 PM...

Hey newsday is this joke?

Time is very important...heath officials say people at high risk only have 2 days, now one day, to get the shots

The illegal invasion is bringing all kinds of diseases that were once rare or eliminated because they come here with no health checks. After they infect us, we have to pay to get cured....oh yeah, and we get to pay for them to be cured as well. Try to go to any emergency room for a legitimate emergency.....see how long you wait...and look around and listen to who's waiting with you.

Nice that no one checked this little kid for anything. What's wrong with this picture? The mother schlepped a sick kid around our neighborhood to infect us all. Wake up, fellow Americans! Start being selective on who we let in here, or there will be no America anymore.

The child and his mother are tourists, not immigrants. They are from Israel, a third world country. Remember when the American got on a plane with TB and traveled all over the place? The difference is the American knew he had it.

Find another soapbox to stand on - this one doesn't fit your platform.

Now if the plane came from Bagdad, or another Muslim country, this article would state the religion of the people that flew here with the infected child.

the way I heard it...the baby had a fever and rash....first of all who in their right mind takes a baby out with a fever and a rash.....that is the first question.....seems like mom is not to bright....getting her nails done was more important than caring for a sick child at home.....

Yeah, sure. Tourists. Sure, Isreal. What will it take for you libs to understand what this f ing open border policy is doing to this country? Queens, Brooklyn, Westbury, Brentwood and on and on. INFESTED. FILTHY.
They no more want to be part of America than you do.
PS - I am working in Toronto this week- we should learn from their big immigration mistake.

I agree with you that baby should not have been out shopping all day and night she is a horrible mother and should have her kid taken away

Don't go crazy unless you are immune compromised. Measles is like the flu. I had it when I was 8 before mandatory school requirements. If we all still got the measles like we are supposed to when we are kids - with strong immune systems, we would not be freaking out about a virus. It's not mrsa or aids for gods sake.

Lets remember that we did more to kill off the native Americans who lived in the US before we exterminated them - with smallpox. Stuff that in your holier than thou anti-visitor, anti-immigration agenda.

“say what you mean...”

Since: Nov 07

and mean what you say.

Thank You SOOO MUCH!
Newsday is selectively biased and bigoted.
To hide behind self erected legalistic excuses is itself
NO EXCUSE!

Close the boarders and stop 3rd world tourists from visting. It is obvious that they are not vaccinated.

This started from a kid from another country. He was here legally.
Just think what deseases the Illegals are climbing over the fences with.
They are not inoculated as children like the US demands of our children.
Just another reason the Illegals have to go.
Can they be considered Feral??? Can the Town's Animal Control Unit take them away now?
