A veteran city prosecutor is among the latest victims.

"A veteran Los Angeles City Hall official is one of the latest victims of an epidemic of the infectious disease typhus that continues to worsen across LA County.

For months, LA County public health officials have said typhus is mainly hitting the homeless population.

But Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.

"It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck," Greenwood told the I-Team. "Who gets typhus? It's a medieval disease that's caused by trash."

I hear stories all the time about the homeless, even in cities like Olympia and Seattle using the streets as a toilet.  Our cities are becoming death traps.

‘Zombie deer’ brain disease spreads to 24 US states & Canada… and increasingly threatens HUMANS

Feb. 9, 2019    RT

"An incurable, mad-cow-like brain infection nicknamed “zombie deer disease” that causes deer, elk and moose to behave strangely and aggressively has spread through half the US – and some fear it may soon turn up in humans.
Chronic wasting disease (CWD) renders its victims uncoordinated, confused and aggressive, while also causing them to lose weight and – eventually – their lives, giving rise to the nickname “zombie deer disease.” Sick animals walk in repetitive patterns and lose all fear of humans, developing a vacant stare.

Like mad cow disease, CWD attacks the brain and spinal cord and is believed to be caused by prions, infectious proteins that travel in bodily fluids and remain contagious for years after leaving the body of their host. Also like mad cow disease, in its early days at least, some scientists have scoffed at the notion it can be transmitted to humans. Others see history repeating itself.

“It is probable that human cases of CWD associated with the consumption of contaminated meat will be documented in the years ahead,” Michael Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease and Research Prevention, warned lawmakers at the Minnesota Capitol on Thursday.

Rise in cases of California children contracting mysterious 'wind-borne' disease that causes heart failure

Mary Kekatos                Feb. 18, 2019

As of January 1, 16 children in San Diego County have been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease
The condition causes inflammation of blood vessels and can lead to heart failure 
Twice as many children in the area have been diagnosed compared with previous years
Scientists believe Kawasaki is weather-related and that triggers of the disease have been carried to the US via wind from Asia 

"A wind-borne disease that inflames blood vessels and causes heart failure is infecting children in San Diego, health officials say.

Since the start of the year, 16 kids have been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency.

Researchers at the UC San Diego School of Medicine told the agency that twice as many children have been diagnosed compared with previous years.  

Experts say the condition can be weather-related and that the triggers of the disease have come over to the US via wind from Asia.

Although scientists are not sure what causes the disease, past studies have shown that climate and environmental patterns may play a role.

'We want community health care providers to have increased vigilance for Kawasaki disease cases during these periods of wet, cool weather,' said Dr Jane Burns, a pediatrician at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and director of the Kawasaki Disease Research Center said in a statement.

'The climate patterns that are associated with increased numbers of children diagnosed have occurred more frequently here so far this year.'  

Kawasaki disease is a condition that causes inflammation in the walls of the blood vessels and affects mostly children under five years old.

The inflammation can weaken or damage the coronary arteries, which supply the heart with blood.

This can lead to aneurysms, heart attacks or heart failure, which is why Kawasaki disease is known as one of the leading causes of heart disease in children, according to the American Heart Association (AHA)."

Symptoms include a fever, a rash, swollen hands and feet, redness in the whites of the eyes and swollen lymph glands in the throat.

San Diego w/cool, wet weather? Portland/Seattle - yes.  If it's cool, wet weather, and winds from Asia, that bring it on, we should have it in the PNW.
