Centuries-old Disease Outbreak in California Homeless Community
Diseases that have been eradicated as far back as medieval times are making a comeback in the homeless camps in California.
The Democrats in California would do something about it, but there are no illegal aliens there, only American citizens, who are on the bottom of the rung of the ladder and not worth their time. Typhus has been spiraling out of control, and the LA city hall had to be closed for a while after rats from the tent city invaded the building.
The number of homeless in LA has spiraled out of control, and no one seems to be doing anything to resolve the issue.
Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of typhus—a disease spread by infected fleas on rats and other animals—in downtown streets. Officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building.
People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria, which is spread through feces and causes the diarrheal disease shigellosis, as well as Bartonella quintana, which spreads through body lice and causes trench fever.
Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through feces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years. The disease also has erupted in New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs.
Public health officials and politicians are using terms like “disaster” and “public health crisis” to describe the outbreaks, and they warn that these diseases can easily jump beyond the homeless population.
“Our homeless crisis is increasingly becoming a public health crisis,” California Gov. Gavin Newsom said in his State of the State speech in February, citing outbreaks of hepatitis A in San Diego County, syphilis in Sonoma County and typhus in Los Angeles County.
