Migrants' AIDS epidemic threat

By EMMA MORTON
November 16, 2006

BRITAIN is facing an Aids epidemic after the revelation that TWO THIRDS of all new cases are in immigrants.

Almost none of these foreigners seeks treatment and could be infecting the rest of the population, medics warned last night.

The problem is set to hit crisis point when Romania and Bulgaria — nations with some of Europe’s highest Aids rates — join the EU next year.
[Edited]


In actual fact I believe that Bulgaria's infection rate is lower than the UK's which is what you'd expect given the lack of African immigration and low tolerance of homosexual practices.

Still, why let the facts get in the way of a good (scare) story?

It is absolutely outrageous that certain newspapers (I use the term "news" very loosely !!) are allowed to get away with printing factualy incorrect stories like this.

The infection rate in Estonia is about the worst in Europe. I wonder why the Sun didn't warn us about that in 2004, when they joined EU?

Murdoch publications are pretty universally anti-Bulgarian in content. Strange when you remember that Murdoch has economic interests in Bulgaria (eg bTV).

I saw a headline on a tabloid - may have been the Sun - that said '80,000,000 Bulgarians and Roumanians may come to the UK!'

One would have thought the combined populace of BG and Romania is in the region of 25 million (25 000 000) 8)
