Another two treated for ‘flu-like’ symptoms
June 30, 2014
Over the weekend two additional cases of the swine flu (H1N1) virus were confirmed among Central American illegal immigrant minors being detained in South Texas, and two more were found to be exhibiting “flu like symptoms,” compounding anxieties over communicable diseases being spread within the meager confines of overloaded detention facilities.
On Saturday, KGBT confirmed via a Border Patrol Union representative that two more cases of the H1N1 virus were detected in minors being held in two separate detainment facilities in Brownsville, Texas.
Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council #3307, “said both cases involve juveniles and both were confirmed on Friday by medical personnel located at both facilities,” reports ValleyCentral.com.
Cabrera also divulged approximately 120 people were being isolated due to exposure with the afflicted juveniles.
