T.B. The direct result of uncontrolled third world immigration to Europe and in particular the UK

London may be famed for its historic sites, double-decker buses and West End shows, but it now has a more dubious distinction: It has become the tuberculosis capital of Western Europe.

In response, health officials are taking to the streets in an effort to stop the spread of the infectious lung disease, with the help of a van equipped with an X-ray machine that drives around London offering free check-ups. 

Similar vans were once commonly used 1950s but most disappeared about two decades later when TB rates dropped. But in recent years, the disease has surged in the U.K.

Last year, London had more TB cases than the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece and Norway combined. It also had more TB than African countries including Eritrea and Gambia.
'We kind of took our eye off the ball and now TB has become a big problem again,' said Dr. Alistair Story, who runs the mobile TB van for University College London Hospitals.

He said the vast majority of TB in the U.K. is among the homeless, drug users and prisoners because they live in cramped, close conditions, which makes them susceptible to infections.

Despite the belief that TB is being imported into the U.K. by recent immigrants, Story said their rates of infection are low. 
[T.B. had virtually disappeared in the UK until successive puppet governments pursued the Zionist (Jewish) agenda of flooding the country with third world immigrants who are allowed to enter our shores without any health screening whatsoever]
'It's certainly not the case that we could have closed the borders and avoided the problem,' he said, pointing out that other European countries with high levels of immigration, including France and Germany, have not had similar spikes of TB. Last year, London had about 3,500 TB cases.
[That's because the other European countries do operate a health screening policy]
Tuberculosis is a highly infectious bacterial disease often spread by coughing or sneezing [and Paki's spitting in the street] and kills more than 1 million people worldwide every year. It most often attacks the lungs and is highly treatable.
More than 95 per cent of TB deaths occur in developing countries and experts are increasingly concerned about the rise of drug-resistant strains, which require more toxic drugs to treat. 

London's £460,000 TB van has an X-ray machine whose scans can be instantly read by a radiographer. On average, the van picks up about one new TB case per week and screens about 10,000 people a year.

If an X-ray looks worrying, staffers call a hospital to arrange confirmatory tests. The entire process of getting an X-ray and its results takes about 90 seconds.

Dr. Ajit Lalvani, chair of infectious diseases at Imperial College London, said: 
'70 percent of people with latent TB who arrive in Britain are missed.'
They aren't currently infectious, but Lalvani said the TB bacteria could sicken them in the future and cause them to infect others. Catching these patients would require a more expensive blood or skin test that isn't commonly used.
"There is a vast reservoir of TB that comes into this country silently," he said. 
"The mobile van is providing a great service, but until we test more widely, we will never get rid of TB in the U.K."
