LAPD Officers Treated For Typhoid Fever, 'Typhus-Like' Symptoms After Working Near Homeless Encampments

EMILY ZANOTTI

EXCERPT:

At least six Los Angeles Police Department officers from the same downtown precinct are showing signs of typhoid fever and a "typhus-like" illness after working in or near the city's growing homeless encampment.

Late last week, radio host Dr. Drew Pinsky made headlines declaring that Los Angeles is the epicenter of a "public health emergency" stemming from a growing homeless population that finds nothing wrong with setting up permanent encampments across large swaths of the city's downtown area, and cautioned that, unless city officials took immediate action, it's likely the homeless population in LA could see an outbreak of the bubonic plague.

The plague, of course, killed tens of millions across Europe in the 14th century, before the advent of public sanitation and clean water systems. But as Pinksy recalled to Fox News host Laura Ingraham last week, Los Angeles is suffering from a complete lack of a sanitation strategy, and just as these serious communicable diseases seem to be taking root, the city council is considering a ban or moratorium on using rat poison.

The six LAPD officers include at least one detective who has already been diagnosed with typhoid fever. The city's police union announced late Saturday that five others are showing symptoms of the same rare illness.

Typhus and typhoid fever are spread through contaminated food and water, and through fleas and ticks. The six officers, who work at the city's Central Division Station, may have come in contact with the disease while policing the city's growing homeless encampments — particularly on Skid Row, which is in the Central Division's district — or simply from interacting within the station itself. A state investigation into conditions in and around the Central Division Station, the Associated Press reports, turned up a myriad of public health issues, landing the building a $5,000 fine and an order to clean up immediately.

But the city's police officer's union says it isn't that simple. Los Angeles needs to get serious about breaking up homeless encampments — even if they feel a sense of progressive empathy over them — before they become a widespread public health hazard.

To the City Police Officers Union Rep, ITS ALREADY A PUBLIC HEALTH HAZARD! Yes homeless encampments need to be razed and the homeless need to be put to work cleaning trash, sweeping sidewalks and streets, picking up dog poop, mowing highway right of ways. Quit the hand outs and give them a job or send them out of town!

Between this in LA and similar in SFO, the state of California has now officially reached "Third World" status, right up there with sub-saharan Africa, Bangladesh, Nepal, etc. The World Health Organization will have to update their map...

This is what happens when you deliberately turn the mentally ill loose out on the streets instead of treating them in mental hospitals.

A couple years ago the area around the Colorado State capitol building downtown was overrun by homeless and there was a major problem with rats that the health department was afraid would spread disease as the weather got warm.

We have recently had a problem with a huge encampment along the Platte River in the South Denver/Englewood area. With the spring thaw, they are in danger of getting caught in rising water if we experience flooding. Not to mention the filth being let into the waterway that eventually ends up in the water treatment facility downstream. They are finally giving the squatters notice that they have to leave and have various “Services” giving them help to try to get them in shelters, jobs, addiction programs, etc.

The problem, however, is that most of them just move along to a new area instead of taking advantage of the help that they city tries to get to them. Many of them don’t want to change or get better. Of course, the sympathetic liberals/leftists all scream bloody murder when the city moves them.

Misplaced compassion of the ignorant Left.

I suffered through para-typhoid fever after returning from a few months in Peru. This was about 30 years ago - fortunately I got a doc who knew tropical diseases, diagnosed it quickly (the nurse had said “you just got the flu on the plane”), and put me on antibiotics before the disease got far.

A side part of that story is that at triage I was actually given a choice of which internal medicine doc to see: Dr Moses or Dr <forgettable name>. I chose Moses!

Yep. Homeless people with mental issues are an epidemic, and it is generally left to the police to deal with them to the detriment of all of the other things that need to be addressed by said police. Since the closing of so many, if not all of the mental hospitals, we spend a ton of time dealing with this issue. Taggart, are you seeing the same thing? Just curious.

Has NOTHING to do with illegals right? Oh no that's wrong. This crap was eradicated from the US and is now making a rapid return thanks to those from the third world.

:exactly:

The bubonic plague may be next?

The illegals have brought back these gifts for us: bedbugs, body lice and other parasites, measles, mumps, chicken pox, typhoid, hepatitis, tuberculosis, influenza and more.

The commie proggy democraps blame us and anti-vaxxers instead.
