The CDC warns of ‘large outbreak’ of measles … let’s hope they handle this better than Ebola.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said on CBS’s “Face the Nation, ” We are very concerned by the growing number of people who are susceptible to measles, and the possibility that we could have a large outbreak in this country as a result.” Wait a minute, I thought measles immunization of children was mandatory? Frieden urged parents to immunize their children.
“What you do for your own kids doesn’t just affect your family. It affects other families as well. The more kids who are not vaccinated, the more they’re at risk and the more they put their neighbors’ kids at risk as well.”
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Tom Frieden on Sunday warned that the U.S. could see a “large outbreak” of measles.
“We are very concerned by the growing number of people who are susceptible to measles, and the possibility that we could have a large outbreak in this country as a result,” Frieden said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
There are at least 102 reported cases in 14 states, according to the CDC. Frieden said that the U.S. is “likely to see more cases.”
Frieden said there is “aggressive public health action” to identify those with measles, isolate those sick and quarantine those who have been exposed.
But he said the best way to prevent the spread of measles was vaccination.
Frieden said despite the U.S.’s 92 percent vaccination rate, there is growing evidence more parents are not vaccinating their children.
REALITY CRIME …
Bill Montag, the 67 year old father of reality television star Heidi Montag, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of child sex abuse and incest. A 29 page arrest affidavit outlines years of abuse that Bill Montag allegedly inflicted on a girl starting when she was 13 years old. The abuse was said to have began in 1993 and continued until she was 17 years old. The arrest affidavit also indicates Montag abused the victim at least 50 different times. The court docs describe the abuse:
“[Bill Montag] groomed [the victim] with back rubs in her bedroom in the basement of their home,” court documents state, going on to charge that the ongoing abuse escalated to Montag attempting to insert a vibrator into the young teen’s vagina, and then developed yet further, resulting in Montag allegedly performing oral sex on the girl when she was 16.
The victim told authorities that she came forward in order to save other girls from becoming victims. The identity of victim of sexual assault will not be released to protect the victim. However, the victim cannot be either Heidi or Holly Montag, as they are too young to fit the profile. But because of the incest charges, the victim is obviously a family member.
Reality television star Heidi Montag’s father, Bill Montag of Glenwood Springs, is in custody and charged with several counts of child sex abuse and incest, according to a court records filed in Arapahoe County.
Montag was arrested Thursday evening by Aspen police. A 29-page arrest affidavit outlines years of abuse Montag allegedly inflicted on a girl starting when she was 13 years old.
The abuse allegedly began in 1993 and continued until she was 17 years old.
Due to the statute of limitations, Montag is only eligible to be charged with crimes that occurred after July 1st, 1996, when the victim would have been 16 years old.
TMZ reports sources connected to Heidi and Spencer … the alleged victim has significant credibility problems.
That is a tough call to say that whether whoever this source is does not have an agenda, or speaks the truth. Charges like sex abuse and incest, if true, would cause speculation as to who else Bill Montag abused. A skeleton that some not ready to deal with would not want to be made public.
Our sources who are very close to Heidi and Spencer tell us … they are very familiar with the accuser who “is determined to destroy the family.” They say she has stalked Heidi and Spencer at various public appearances to the point security had to remove her. Heidi and Spence believe Bill Montag will be exonerated.
