An outbreak of pulmonary TB in a school has prompted a string of posters that purport to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but which have been mislabeled by parents.
“It’s so sad that the children who need the most help from the government are getting hurt,” one poster said.
Another said: “The CDC has sent you to the hospital for your TB, but you should be vaccinated.”
The posters were posted on social media sites in the US and Canada on Thursday and Friday, according to a news release from the CDC.
The agency said the posters were created by members of the CDC’s Emergency Management Office who had been alerted by their own children to the outbreak.
“We are taking this opportunity to express our heartfelt condolences and the concern and concern our staff and volunteers have for our students and staff members,” the release said.
“Children are our lifelines, and we will continue to keep them in our care.”
The school posters, which include images of the poster with the words: “My child’s asthma is getting worse.
We need you, the public, to help us,” and “I want to take my child to the pediatrician, but my asthma isn’t going away,” are being shared widely on social networking sites.
Parents have also shared photos of the posters on Twitter and Instagram, with many using the hashtags disseminate and disseminate pulmonary tuberculosis.
Many posters appear to show posters reading from the official CDC poster for the disease.
Another poster shows posters reading: “We are sending you to your local emergency room, but this is just the beginning.
It’s so scary and embarrassing to see these posters, but we must keep the children safe.”
In a separate case, a poster reading: ‘The government needs to stop using children as guinea pigs for their own propaganda, and put more children in schools, because the real world is not safe for children, and they don’t get tested.’
“This is a real and serious issue.
We know there is a connection between the pandemic and tuberculosis, and this outbreak of TB is not isolated to this outbreak, but it is real and spreading,” the poster said in Spanish.
The US government has said it expects to have 1,300 cases of pulmonary pneumonia and 2,500 cases of acute respiratory infections by the end of this month, and has launched an investigation into the pandemics spread.
The pandemic has also been blamed on lax drug testing laws in some states, with health authorities now saying they have seen an increase in cases among people who have used the synthetic opiates fentanyl and hydromorphone.
