Mountains of rotting rat-infested trash has piled sky-high in the liberal utopia of Los Angeles despite millions of dollars allocated for clean up and prevention.
In October, LA 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 streets in LA, especially Skid Row, known as “the Typhus Zone,” there are still mountains of trash everywhere and the infectious disease is worsening.
Several months ago the large piles of trash were cleared out, but the problem is back and much worse than before.
Last fall, typhus began spreading across the homeless population through fleas that live on the rats that rummage through the trash and Liz Greenwood, the Deputy City Attorney who works at City Hall contracted the disease.
Symptoms of typhus include fever, headache and a rash. Untreated cases are fatal.
Now law enforcement officers in Los Angeles have been diagnosed with Typhus.
NBC Los Angeles reported:
An officer at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Station has contracted Salmonella Typhi, the bacteria that causes typhoid fever, and another is suspected of contracting typhus, a disease carried by rats and fleas, the LAPD told the I-Team Wednesday.
A spokesman for the LAPD confirmed to the I-Team that an officer stationed at Central Division has typhus-like symptoms but has not yet been diagnosed with the disease. Typhus can be spread by infected fleas that live on rats that have been linked to growing homeless encampments.
Heaps of trash, rats, typhus, exploding homeless population and tent cities — isn’t liberalism grand?
