Default Typhus Epidemic Hits L.A. County/Pasadena

Typhus, a disease usually found in areas that have war, unclean living conditions, poor health care has been labeled as an "epidemic" in L.A. Living conditions in L.A. are deteriorating to the point where Typhus or even more serious disease outbreaks are possible.

Quote:
Many typhus epidemics raged throughout Europe for several centuries and were often related to poor living conditions brought about by wars. For example, some historians estimate more of Napoleon's troops were killed by typhus than by Russian soldiers during their retreat from Moscow in 1812. Ireland and the Americas recorded several epidemics. In the 1830s, over 100,000 Irish died from outbreaks. In the U.S. between 1837 and 1873, outbreaks were recorded in Philadelphia, Concord, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

This disease is carried by fleas and picked up by rubbing flea feces in open wounds or eyes.

Quote:
Typhus is a flea-borne disease that affects thousands of people every year. It is often found in the colder mountainous regions of Africa, South America and Asia. Like typhoid, it most commonly occurs in areas where overcrowding and poor hygiene are common.

The World Health Organization does not have a vaccine against typhus in its registry. However, the WHO does note the risk is low for travelers. Humanitarian relief workers, though, may be susceptible to the illness.

LOS ANGELES Health officials on Friday reported a typhus outbreak in Los Angeles County and say it has reached "epidemic levels" in the city of Pasadena.

Twenty cases have been reported in Pasadena, most in the last two months, health officials told NBC News, noting that a normal year there would typically only see five infections. The city of Long Beach, Calif., has 12 cases so far in 2018 double the normal annual number, said Emily Holman, the city's infectious disease response coordinator.

The number of cases in the rest of the county since July is nine, which counts as an "outbreak,"...
...Some experts, however, say the true culprit is the inhumane conditions the county's expanding homeless population lives in.

"All of the cases have a history of living or working in the downtown Los Angeles area," a county health spokeswoman said via email.

Andy Bales, the CEO of the Union Rescue Mission, which has nearly 1,400 beds for those fleeing or avoiding downtown's Dickensian streets, said, "The conditions on Skid Row are ripe for even more serious issues than this."

Blame Russia Conduct an FBI investigation immediately!

Sorry not trying to be a jackass but I just thought that would be standard procedure for California.

I thought this was an interesting article because it shows that Cali's methods of running their government are leading to more and more homeless who are living in increasingly third world like conditions. Of course, they have plenty of millionaires who live in luxury as well.

That's part of it but the other part is that homeless are actually being imported.
