Typhus Spreading Like Wildfire in LA in Rat Infested Homeless Camps

Typhus is running wild in LA among the homeless, where the garbage is stacked high and is rat infested, creating a major health scare.

If left untreated, typhus can have serious effects on the bodyTyphus causes inflamed blood vessels, which in turn can cause a dramatic drop in blood pressure as well as internal bleeding. Patients who suffer from typhus may also experience kidney failure or swelling of the liver and spleen.
Without treatment, death may occur in 10 to 60 percent of patients with epidemictyphus, with patients over age 60 having the highest risk of death. In the antibiotic era, death is uncommon if doxycycline is given.
The problem is that one of the largest homeless camps is in the city center and rats have made their way into city hall. The fleas that live on the rats are the culprits behind the typhus problem. Last year, there were 124 cases in LA. Not bad for a medieval disease. This year the number go much higher.

In October, Mayor Garcetti promised to clean up the heaps of rat-infested trash piling up around Los Angeles to help combat the Typhus epidemic.

Even though the Mayor allocated millions of dollars to help clean up the LA, especially Skid Row, knows as “the Typhus Zone,” there are still mountains of trash everywhere and the infectious disease is worsening.

A statement from Mayor Garcetti’s office was given to NBC Los Angeles:

“Last fall we directed multiple City departments to begin a coordinated and comprehensive effort to improve cleanliness and protect public health in the Civic Center, including City Hall and City Hall East. In addition to increased trash collection and cleanings, aggressive action has been taken to address pests both in the buildings and in the surrounding outside areas — including abatement treatments and the filling of 60 rodent burrows and 114 tree wells. This work in busy and highly populated public buildings is executed carefully to protect workers and visitors, and the scheduling of extermination activities takes these factors into consideration.” — Vicki Curry, spokeswoman, city of Los Angeles.
