      • They say it's hep-a being caused by homeless shitting in the streets. City is pressure washing streets with chlorinated water when they can. Imagine the liberal dilemma caused by allowing homeless camps and street shifting, then having to wash infected feces, needles and tooters into the ocean :lol:.

        Sierra Club made a similar deal with the devil when it started supporting the importation of high birthrate populations into the United States to the detriment of the environment.

        San Diego hepatitis A outbreak deaths reach 16

        San Diego County's hepatitis A outbreak shows no signs of slowing, according to the latest update released Tuesday by the county Health and Human Services Agency.

        The outbreak's death total rose to 16 - one more than last week's total. The number of confirmed cases reached 421, up 23 from last week. The number of hospitalizations also pushed higher, reaching 292 from 279 the week before.

        New numbers came one day after a city of San Diego contractor began a new sidewalk and street cleaning campaign that has workers using high-pressure sprayers to scour sidewalks with bleach-infused water capable of killing the hepatitis A virus.

        The county declared a local public health emergency on Sept. 1, enhancing an ongoing vaccination campaign with the installation of hand-washing stations in locations where homeless residents, who have been hit hardest by the outbreak, gather.

        Hand hygiene is a focus of the public health effort to stem the outbreak because the virus can spread when people don't wash their hands well enough after going to the bathroom and then share food, drink, drugs, have sex or other close contact with an uninfected person.

        In recent weeks, public health officials have said that, because the incubation period for hepatitis A ranges from 15 to 50 days, it may take several more months for any positive effects of the current sanitation campaign to be obvious.

        The symptoms of hepatitis A infection, which do not appear in all cases, include: fever, fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, yellowing of the eyes (jaundice), stomach pain, vomiting, dark urine, pale stools and diarrhea.

        Infection can be prevented through vaccination. Though most recover with little or no treatment, a hepatitis A infection can be fatal for those with pre-existing liver damage and other health conditions.

        On Wednesday, Mayor Kevin Faulconer has scheduled a news conference to give details about locating multiple large tent structures that could give temporary shelter to hundreds of people living on the streets.

        The industrial tents will include beds, showers, restrooms and hand-washing stations.

        The mayor's morning news conference is schedule for the parking lot next to Father Joe's Villages, which provides services and indoor shelter for the homeless in downtown San Diego. It is unclear whether the parking lot will be a site for one of the tents or how long it will take the city to get the tent program up and running.

        The idea of the tents was pushed by San Diego Padres Managing Partner Peter Seidler and chain restaurant operator Dan Shea. They announced in July that they had raised enough money to secure at least two tents, which could accommodate 250 people each.

        The city in past years erected temporary tent shelters for the homeless, but that program was abandoned in favor of getting them into permanent housing. That effort has lagged because of a lack of affordable housing and various individuals and groups have urged the city to again provide more temporary shelter until the "housing first" model picks up steam.

        A January count of homeless people in San Diego found the population had reached 9,116, a 5 percent increase from last year. Of those, 5,621 were unsheltered, an increase of 14 percent.

        The unsheltered population downtown jumped by 27 percent.

        WTF are "tooters"?

        One of the ways hepatitis is being spread. Anything straw-like used to snort coke, heroin, meth, etc.

      • They had the same problem with homeless shitting on the street in Minneapolis. They had to cease pressure washing the sidewalks because it triggered and offended libtards who claimed it reminded them of police in the 1960's using water hoses to stop protesters.

        I'm serious.

      • Why dio homeless and jobless people in L.A. whine about the unattainable housing costs? The bit for Sam Kinison where he screamed at the Ethiopians to go where there's food comes to mind.
