TB, feces, Hepatitis and now typhus

the zoning policies make housing too expensive for many, but the majority of the homeless are mentally ill or addicted, and the law has changed so they cannot be forced to take treatment, and the cities are too cheap to supply places for them to live.

So now we have typhus.

NBC Los Angeles reports that Flea Borne typhus has been diagnosed among the homeless in Los Angeles.

,,,The scope of the outbreak is hard to assess because it could take one to two weeks to detect, meaning the full extent of the number of infections is likely unknown at this time. The outbreak follows a Tuberculosis outbreak in the same area along numerous staph infections reported.
