Multi-Resistant Tuberculosis Pathogens Found in Refugees

By Claudia Sewig, January 16, 2018

Scientists substantiated the outbreak of a multi-resistant strain of tuberculosis. It was discovered in 29 refugees who had come to Germany via the Horn of Africa.

The tuberculosis trend, which had been declining for many years, has turned around. This is what the Robert-Koch-Institut (RKI) in Berlin announced at World Tuberculosis Day 2017, pointing out a relation with current migration movements. Scientists at the National Reference Centre (NRZ) at the research center Borstel (Segeberg district) managed to substantiate a Europe-wide outbreak of a multi-resistant strain of tuberculosis with 29 refugees. The strain showed a remarkable combination of resistance to four different antibiotics.

The increase of cases involving persons with a migration background caused the NRZ scientists to conduct further research. In general, newly-arriving refugees are screened for transmittable diseases in the entry exam according to paragraph 62 of asylum law (AsylG). This includes an x-ray of the respiratory tract, which can determine a tuberculosis infection. But only ten percent of the people who are infected with the pathogen become ill — half of them in the first year after infection, the other half even later.
Since the law for protection against infection (IfSG) was introduced in January 2001, numerous characteristics of each tuberculosis patient are recorded and, in anonymised form, transferred by the 400 health offices in Germany via the 16 land offices to the Robert Koch Institute.

Refugees came via Horn of Africa

The research center Borstel now announces in a publication in the professional journal “The Lancet Infectious Diseases” that the researchers from Schleswig-Holstein and their colleagues of the National Reference Center for Mycobacteria (NZM) Switzerland identified a hitherto unknown tuberculosis pathogen in 2016.

The molecular-biological examination in combination with patient interviews enabled the scientists to partially reconstruct the chain of infection. The data pointed to infection before the arrival in Europe, in a Libyan refugee camp at Bani Walid.

It is likely that the strain developed from a clone of a tuberculosis strain that is common at the Horn of Africa, and developed the critical combination of resistances. All 29 patients from seven European countries were refugees who had migrated to Europe via the Horn of Africa.

There were no refugees from Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein or Lower Saxony [i.e. northern Germany] among the 14 cases in Germany, according to the statement. “The patients are mainly unaccompanied underage refugees who registered in Baden-Württemberg,” says Dr. Katharina Kranzer, chief of the NRZ at the research center Borstel. But as the outbreak was still ongoing, more cases might surface.

In September 2015, in what has been the largest influx of refugees to Hamburg until now, nine people were taken as a precaution to the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE). A paramedic had noticed, in a tent at the main strain station, symptoms of the highly infectious disease in three refugees who were waiting to continue their journey there. They were able to be released from the UKE only hours later.

70 percent of those fallen ill are foreign nationals

“It was only through analysis of the genome that the strain of the outbreak was unambiguously identified,” says Professor Stefan Niemann, author of the study and leader of the research team for molecular and experimental mycobateriology at the Borstel research center, and of the tuberculosis department at the German Center for Infection Research. “But in order to be able to fully benefit from the advantages of this technology it needs to be incorporated into routine screening and monitoring for tuberculosis.”

Niemann refers to himself and his colleagues as genome detectives, as they have been analyzing the genome of the tuberculosis bacterium. “In order to be able to determine the tuberculosis strain, we developed a quick test,” says Niemann. Additionally, in Borstel, in a pilot project, all laboratory samples from tuberculosis patients from Hamburg, Hannover and Frankfurt are being analyzed. “We have material from Hamburg from 1996 on,” says the researcher, hoping that other cities will join in on the project.

According to RKI, a total of 5915 cases of tuberculosis were registered in 2016, meaning 7.2 newly ill per 100,000 inhabitants. The analysis by nationality showed visible differences in the risk of illness: The incidence with foreign nationals was 42.6 per 100,000 inhabitants and thus was 19 times higher than in the German population (incidence 2.2).

This discrepancy has increased, compared to the previous year (factor 16.6). The difference was especially notable in young adults. Altogether, 30.9 percent of those who had fallen sick had German nationality; 69.1 were foreign nationals.

The analysis by country of birth shows that the number of foreign-born patients steadily increased over the past years, and constituted three quarters or 74.3% of all registered cases in 2016. The most frequently-stated countries are Somalia, Eritrea, Afghanistan, Syria and Romania. “But it would be wrong to assume that you can’t become infected by tuberculosis in Germany, and that it is always transmitted abroad,” points out Niemann. “30 percent of the cases occur via transmission in Germany.”

  1. So, after ruining the life, and discarding the life’s work, of a brilliant researcher who showed how to contend with pathogenic disease through the manipulation of electro-magnetic radiation, the world now needs to retrieve his findings and use them against mortal pathogens becoming common once again, but now proof against the antibiotics we so cavalierly dismissed as suitable to be a food animal’s feed additive and an aquarium environment stabilizer.

    If you haven’t been satisfactorily angry lately, you can remedy that by researching the work of Royal Raymond Rife.

  2. What is so frightening is that people like this are unlikely to follow the regimen of taking 3 or more TB medicines a day. Often the Public Health Department has to send a worker out for every dose to make sure the person takes the medicine. What is even worse, is that some of these medications are ineffective if eaten with certain foods. How are minimally educated people going to follow a regimen like this? And living in crowded refugee housing, they probably spread TB to many people before they were even diagnosed.

  3. TB was formerly a reason to NOT allow someone to enter a western country and extremely so if active. However, like allowing muslims to work in surgical areas and in food preparation (with the expected common misuse of the opportunities thus provided (I wonder IF national health authorities look for faecal contamination in tinned and frozen foods)), the “refugee” excuse to allow such in will enable them to spread their disease widely(syphilis is already back with a vengeance and not just in “refugees”). You will find proof of this later in the next decade or so when we start to see cases of enteric TB in westerners from TB patients spitting infected phlegm onto food. Adding to this we will see it push the western medical costs very quickly out of reach of all but the rich as medical benefits costs escalate. Add to this the open gates of the new Shangri-La for anyone in the ME or Africa or even Asia with a serious disease who can claim to be a “refugee”and the western superiority in healthcare will be a thing of the past and like the world pre 1910 ONLY available for the rich. This is the socialism that they wish to bring back to us.

  4. The millions of immigrants who flooded into Europe at Merkel’s invitation were not screened for anything. They are human biological WMDs.
