There are (now) 57 cases of flea-borne typhus in LA County, a health department spokesperson says.
Typhus fever has reached "epidemic levels" in Pasadena and an outbreak has hit downtown LA.
On Friday, one city in the county -- Pasadena -- reported epidemic levels of typhus fever.

up from the expected one to five cases per year, according to the Pasadena Public Health Department.

Ah the benefits of being a sanctuary city. The flies come with them.
Open borders to the 3rd world bring 3rd world problems.
Glad I don’t live in LA or CA. Feel sorry for FReepers who do.
Flea-borne typhus spreading from LA, marking a dramatic increase
in the number of infections within the last week.
Control of vectors and contagion includes minimizing contacts with wildlife,
and restricting domestic pets and their food being left outdoors.
LA - the Big Rock Candy Mountain.
Not that bad. Everything burns every so often here and kills the fleas.
Bingo....and a lot more
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
Build a wall for the fleas.
Instead, they ignore the reasonable regulations and layer on BS as a way to further their political agenda which isn't what regulations are intended to do. From zoning laws to sanitation, they've destroyed the major cities in this country and are now freaking out because outside of those cities the rest of the country doesn't want a thing to do with their abandonment of common sense.
How many Americans will need to die before the Democrats in control of the large urban area be run out of town on a rail?
Unreal the Leftist Policies of the Los Angeles and San Francisco are causing health problems most thought long solved. There are limits to what can be permitted and we see the Left does not really have a clue or care.
Not every bad thing can be blamed on illegals, despite the many problems they do cause. A lot of this is happening around the skid row area of L.A. and the population of of those homeless crosses all race boundaries. Right now my SIL is a foreman on a huge high rise complex two blocks away from skid row and he says that it's unbelievable how much drug use of all kinds is occurring out in the open all day long and that a large number of the people he sees have serious mental issues.
So really it's more like, Ah the benefits of the ACLU and liberals for first ensuring that all the mental institutions were closed, because we were violating the rights of the insane by keeping them safe and on their medications(yes there were abuses) and for now stirring up legal and public outcry if the police actually try to enforce the law and clean up areas. You have no idea what they pulled to try and stop Orange County from cleaning the vagrants out from the Santa Ana river bed along the 57 freeway.
Also the press loves to use the homeless moniker when most of the people are actually just vagrants that prefer to live the way they do so they aren't bothered by pesky little things like laws or morals.
