Posted on 12/18/2017 10:57:44 AM PST by blam
More than 600 Hepatitis A cases have been reported in Southeast Michigan as the outbreak continues to ravage the communities. Public health officials are continuing to see these numbers elevate, and warn that it will continue to worsen as we approach the holidays.
According to Voice News, more than 80 percent of those who have contracted the highly contagious liver disease have required hospitalization. Another 20 people have died after becoming infected with the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that symptoms can be mild or severe depending on the health of the person who contracts the virus. The elderly and those with existing liver conditions are the most at risk. Those infected can be contagious for up to two weeks before showing any symptoms, which include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal and joint pain, yellowing of the skin, dark urine and light-colored stools.
The virus is spread through direct person-to-person contact, contaminated food and beverages, and illicit drug use. But this outbreak is difficult for health officials to contain since no common source of the outbreak has been identified, health officials said. Washing your hands after going to the bathroom and before preparing meals for yourself and others, using your own towels, toothbrushes and eating utensils, and not sharing food and drinks with other people are all good ways to prevent the spread of the disease.

> Wash Your Hands. <
To which I’d add: Make it a practice to never touch your face, especially when out in public. Because you’ve probably touched a lot of icky things.
So no scratching the side of your mouth. No rubbing your eyes. And don’t even think about picking your nose.
Hmmm...San Diego sending their homeless back to Michigan??

Thanks blam. Hepa Titus was one of the less-well-known Roman emperors, sounds like anyway...
They’ll probably end up nicknaming this outbreak as “Somali Food Worker Syndrome”.
"Southeastern Michigan" = Detroit Metro, which of course includes Dearborn
with it's Iraquis & Syrians and Hamtramck with its Yemenis etc.
I'll bet a dollar to a donut that the outbreak is tied to these "communities."
SE Michegan is full of muslim impoorts who work in food and meat plants. Go look up which companies and then do not buy their products.
Wash Your Hands.
I occasionally watch Live PD on Friday & Saturday nights on the A & E channel. I notice that whenever a citizen offers to shake a cops hand, the cops alway do a fist bump instead. ALWAYS! Thats a pretty good policy.
Yes! And we know how Somalis & other Muslims wipe after going to the bathroom. Folks, look it up if you dont know.
The right hand is so versatile!
My first thought as well, per Michael Savage...illegal immigrants bring disease.
Cultural enrichment at its best.
Well, how else can you go through the discount bin looking for another one?
Yipes! How do I look that up? I suspect that doing a search on “moslem food packers” is not going to do it.....
Right handed wipers...
oh come , we gotta pick our noses. theres gold in there that needs mining!
