Dengue is a viral disease spread by mosquitoes. Dengue fever cases are up 600% in Mexico since 2001.

Spring break in Cancun, anybody?

MEXICO CITY – The deadly hemorrhagic form of dengue fever is increasing dramatically in Mexico, and experts predict a surge throughout Latin America fueled by climate change, migration and faltering mosquito eradication efforts.

Dengue has been found along the U.S.-Mexico border, where 151 classic and 46 hemorrhagic cases were recorded last year in the Gulf state of Tamaulipas, south of Texas.

“It’s part of globalization,” Kuri said. “Someone can be in Paraguay, where there is a big outbreak, with type-one virus, and six hours later be in Mexico.”

      What happened to the arithmetic order of operations test? I enjoyed that. I know niggers were incapable of penetrating that one.

      Say what you will about the filthy mestizo. I’ll be voting for Diego Sanchez in the upcoming UFC fight against the half nigger-half jew mutant Josh Koschek. May the human win!!!
