Medieval Diseases Making a Comeback Due to Feces on Streets

Experts warn of “public health crisis”.

Published

Medieval diseases are making a comeback in major American cities thanks to the increasing amount of feces on the streets.

According to a report by Kaiser Health News, “Infectious diseases – some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages – are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.”

Outbreaks of Shigella bacteria and Hepatitis A, both are which are caused by exposure to feces, are on the increase in Southern California, New Mexico, Ohio and Kentucky, “primarily among people who are homeless or use drugs.”

Experts are now warning of a “public health crisis” that could see the diseases spread to the general population.

Many would assert that the homeless problem – and by extension the feces problem – in cities like San Francisco is being exacerbated by the government handing out free needles to drug addicts.

San Francisco’s junkie population – many of whom live on the streets and use sidewalks as outdoor toilets – now stands at 24,500, an increase of 2,000 drug users since 2012 and 8,500 more people than the city’s 16,000 high school students.

Despite this increase, the city handed out a record 5.8 million free syringes last year – about 500,000 more than in 2017. There were 9,659 calls complaining about needles littering the streets in 2018, an increase of a third on 2017 numbers.

Instead of keeping people mired in an endless cycle of desperation and addiction, surely the money would be better spent on helping them go clean?

Surging Homeless Population in Los Angeles Could Spark Increase in Leprosy

More cases starting to emerge.

With typhoid fever and even the return of the bubonic plague already big concerns, increasing homelessness in Los Angeles could also spark an increase in leprosy.

According to a new study, more leprosy cases are starting to emerge in Los Angeles County, with Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa of the University of Southern California urging the public to “fight the stigma.”

Leprosy, which is spread through the air but must involve close contact, can cause permanent blindness, severe damage to the body’s skin, nerves, and mucous membranes, as well as deformities.

Although victims can make full recoveries if they receive early diagnoses, most of Los Angeles’ homeless population who are at risk will not get swift treatment.

“As leprosy has been a neglected disease with a high potential to cause deformities, especially when it is not treated properly, I would like to reinforce the need for early identification of cases in the community with the adoption of active case search and screening of household and social contacts from all index cases,” Dr. Victor S. Santos told Reuters.

Earlier this year, Dr. Drew Pinsky said the public health situation in America’s second largest city was in utter turmoil.

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” said Pinsky.

1.5 per cent of rats in L.A. now carry bubonic plague. If that figures hits 2 per cent, the medieval disease will start jumping to humans.

In other words, if LA doesn’t sort out its trash problem and its homeless problem, the return of bubonic plague is virtually guaranteed.

As we document in the video below, L.A.’s 60,000 homeless population, vast amounts of uncollected trash and 12 million rats have all combined to make the city increasingly resemble a third world hellscape.

Video: Migrants From Ebola-Stricken Congo Marched Through Streets of San Antonio

City worker assaults cameraman for filming the scene.

Video footage shows migrants from ebola-stricken Congo being marched through the streets of San Antonio at night as one of their chaperones assaults a cameraman for filming the scene.

The clip shows migrants being led to a nearby church by city workers. Some of the illegal migrants hide their faces while one of the individuals leading the group assaults an Infowars cameraman in an attempt to stop him from filming.

“What country do you think you’re in, man?” asks the cameraman.

As we highlighted yesterday, large groups of migrants from the Democratic Republic of the Congo have been arriving in the U.S. after they initially fled to Brazil. Congo has been hit by one of the biggest ebola outbreaks in history, with 2,000 recorded cases in the last 10 months.

Some cities say they are overwhelmed with the number of migrants arriving and are sending them to other areas of the country.

Border Patrol officials said that 500 people from African countries had been arrested by Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector in Texas alone in the six days after May 30.

Infowars reporters documenting the processing and transfer of the migrants were assaulted by both city workers and a waitress working at a nearby restaurant simply for covering the story.

The ebola virus can remain dormant within humans for three weeks.

Meanwhile, Dr Michael Ryan, the executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, told BBC News that the global spread of deadly diseases is becoming “a new normal” thanks to “large and highly mobile populations”.

U.S. Cities Overwhelmed With Numbers of Illegal Migrants Arriving From Ebola-Stricken Countries

Africans fleeing pandemic being transported throughout America.

Some U.S. cities are becoming overwhelmed with the number of illegal African migrants arriving from Ebola-stricken countries, with Portland Maine complaining that they are beyond capacity.

Large groups of migrants are arriving from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has been hit by one of the biggest ebola outbreaks in history, with 2,000 recorded cases in the last 10 months.

Border Patrol officials said that 500 people from African countries had been arrested by Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector in Texas alone in the six days after May 30.

Hundreds of the migrants are being sent to a city-owned shelter in San Francisco.

According to Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Colleen Bridger, officials were not informed by Border Patrol that the migrants were on their way.

The migrants are then being transported to other areas of the United States, including Portland, Maine, where officials complained they were incapable of processing any more.

“The plan was 350 of them would travel from San Antonio to Portland. When we reached out to Portland Maine they said, ‘Please don’t send us any more. We’re already stretched way beyond our capacity,” Bridger said. “So we’re working with them [the migrants] now to identify other cities throughout the United States where they can go and begin their asylum seeking process.”

Residents of San Antonio expressed concerns about the arrival of the migrants, some of whom were being housed in a nearby church.

The charity Catholic Charities of San Antonio is helping to fund the transportation of the migrants to other areas of the country.

“We’re looking at roughly $14,000 a week on bus tickets alone,” the group’s spokesperson, Christina Higgs, told KENS 5. “We’ve been asked several times if we’re worried if the money will run out and we are. It’s obviously a finite resource.”

Meanwhile, Dr Michael Ryan, the executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, told BBC News that the global spread of deadly diseases is becoming “a new normal” thanks to “large and highly mobile populations”.
