San Diego Washing Streets With Bleach To Combat Hepatitis A Outbreak – “fecally contaminated environment”

San Diego has started washing its downtown streets with bleach in an effort to combat an outbreak of hepatitis A that has killed at least 15 people and infected nearly 400.

The infectious disease has largely infected homeless people in the coastal California city, and part of the issue is an apparent shortage of public restrooms in areas where the population congregates.

Hepatitis A was first identified in the area in early March, according to the county, and declared a public health emergency earlier this month.

A letter from San Diego County health officials stated that hepatitis A is being spread though contact with a “fecally contaminated environment” as well as person-to-person transmission.

    They are fortunate that they haven’t had a typhoid outbreak. Saw a lot of that in South America among street food vendors.

      Well when you turn over your state to third world illegal immigrants it’s funny how third world problems start rearing up all around you.

      Many are following wack-job Suzanne Summers, and oppose vaccinations.

        “The CDC published a study in late 2003, repudiating any possible nk
        link between thimerosal and developmental problems such as autism,
        but the CDC did have data supporting such a link which it secretively kept from
        the public.”

        There are just a host of neurodevelopmental data that would suggest that we’ve got a serious problem. The earlier we go, the more serious the problem.”

    aren’t the Mexicans dumping 200,000 gallons a day raw sewage into the Tijuana river that in turn drains into SanDiago Bay?that can’t help and once that fecal matter dries and becomes wind borne, then look out.

    The illegals are lucky that Gerry Brown cares more about theme and gives them FREE housing and health care .
    In Toronto we have John Tory that is now in love with the Muslim “refugees” and illegals ever since Trudeau promised the City part of his $60,000,000,000.00 debt spending prior to the 2019 election .

    Toronto now has a record high rate for the deaths to Homeless people which are almost 100% white males born ion canada to canadians parents.

    The future is in unskilled refugees to keep on welfare and vote Liberal-4-life until the money runs out .

    What the ……….have they done to my town!!! I fondly remember San Diego from the 50’s and 60’s. I saw what was happening in the early 80’s and left……But this? Never dreamed of this happening in my most paranoid of dreams…….

    It’s not illegals causing the issue its the HOMELESS. Tons of them.
    The area that they congregate in and do there drugs and drink in downtown is so saturated with them that there is now a health crisis. The current mayor does not want to deal with them in any way so he ignores the situation and now it has spawned into this. So what next? They are infecting others and as they do so, it is being carried around to area beaches where they also go to party and pan handle.

    The homeless have actually set up camps/tents on freeway on ramps and yet the city does nothing. Just ridiculous.
