California Cities Are Dens of Filth, Typhus-Outbreak
San Francisco is the capital for human excrement filled streets. Los Angeles is now the capital for the return of third world disease and outbreaks. Skid row is a den of homelessness where sanitary conditions are less than ideal. Rats and other vermin live with the cities poorest. Fleas from those animals carry disease, and according to the City of Los Angeles, we have a typhus outbreak.
So far this year, as many as 92 cases of typhus have been reported - including 20 in Pasadena and a possible 18 cases in Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, which added that five cases are still under investigation. LA sees an average of 60 cases per year, which is double the rate of recent years, according to the LA County Health Department.
"With increased rat density, diseases like typhus are very likely to occur," according to Dr. Lee W. Riley - an infectious disease specialist at the UC Berkeley.
