LA is suffering from a typhus outbreak at ‘epidemic levels’

Article:


A typhus outbreak in Los Angeles has reached “epidemic levels” — and some experts are blaming the shocking scourge on the city’s ever-expanding homeless population.

Twenty cases of the rare, flea-borne infectious disease– associated with poor sanitary conditions and overcrowding– have been recorded in Pasadena alone over the past two months, according to the Los Angeles County Health Department. Long Beach has seen 12 cases so far this year, double the normal number. And there have been nine other cases in the rest of the county, NBC News reported.

Nationwide, there are only about 200 cases of the disease in an average year, according to the CDC.

Typhus can cause high fever, headaches, chills, body aches, rashes, stomach aches, and in rare cases, meningitis and death. Humans get stricken when fleas– themselves infected by certain strains of bacteria — bite them or defecate on exposed skin. There is no vaccine.

Officials are investigating the cause of the outbreak.

But some experts wonder if it’s the city’s mushrooming homeless population — the number of people living on the streets and in shelters has surged 75 percent to about 55,000 in the last six years — that’s to blame.

How about the illegal immigrant population to blame?

There weren't any bedbug infestation epidemics here until the Obamunist mass smuggled in all of those illegals for 8 years?

LA goes to bed with the dogs, and wakes up with the fleas. Sweet karma.

Typhoid is spread almost entirely by lack of proper sanitation.

Is LA becoming the next 'Frisco?

Just keep 'em out of LAX. I'm catching a connecting flight there in a couple of weeks.

And the EPA banned the most effective pesticide for bedbugs. The only one that not only worked really well but lingered long enough to keep them from coming back and killed the eggs. Because, you know, bug lives matter.

Just need to point out that typhus and typhoid are different diseases. Typhus is a flea borne disease and typhoid is food and water borne. Which actually makes it more feasible that the typhus is being spread by the homeless population. Homeless camps attract critters, like rats, rats carry fleas. So, there you go. Although, the lack of sanitation would also make it ripe to start incubating typhoid!

We are starting to have the same problem in downtown Denver. Our stellar local news sources try to make it sound like it is all the workers who leave their lunches in the trash that attract the rats at night. Yea, right. That’s the reason, sure.

Yesterday, I went for a bike ride and it's several miles of open fields and forest land before you get to an intersection where Safeway and McDonalds are located. And in this forested area, I've noticed that, I guess, homeless people are begining to hang out.

The Bubonic or Black Plague was spread by fleas, as well, and thanks to the politicos here in CA you have homeless people living in the civic center of my hometown, on the lawn of the police and fire station in the downtown civic center plaza and that is a direct result of the politics of the Dims that have been running roughshod through the state.

If anyone needed further proof that leftards are a plague on society, look no further.

They’re easy to confuse. Unless you have one of them!

The explosion in the homeless population while at the same time there is a drop in the unemployment rate sort of disproves the theory the democrats wants to try to push that many of the homeless just can’t find jobs, boo hoo. They are just lazy slugs being coddled by the leftists who are using them to advance their agenda – like they do with every group they can use for their twisted plan.
