Philadelphia usually sees no more than six cases of Hepatitis A annually, said Abernathy. City officials count 117 confirmed cases.
The Kensington, ground zero of the region’s opioid crisis, where many people struggling with addiction live on the streets, has grappled with poop on the street, in parks and on porches for years. Hepatitis A spreads primarily through contact with fecal matter.
“There’s so much human feces on the ground it’s unbelievable,” said Jacelyn Blank, a board member of the East Kensington Neighbors Association and the co-founder of the group Philly Tree People, which plans and cares for trees in the city’s many leaf-deprived neighborhoods.
A recent string of power outages reportedly sent at least 4.5 million gallons of raw sewage from wastewater treatment plants throughout Seattle directly into the crisp waters of Puget Sound, once again illustrating that this leftist-run metropolis has a very serious poop problem on its hands.
As Dr. Drew told Ingraham, small amounts of runoff in various places along the coast is normal, but there is now a consistent, recurring water contamination problem. He believes that the 60- to 80,000 homeless people defecating, urinating and bleeding directly into gutters on a daily basis is the major source of contamination. All that sewage and human waste makes its way into the L.A. River and Santa Ana River Basin, ultimately ending up in the oceans.
Dr. Drew noted:
“There is an organization out here called Heal the Bay which keeps tabs on safety of our beaches in Southern California, from Orange County to Ventura. Since the rains last Winter, [Heal the Bay] has been giving our beaches C’s to F’s, and F means completely overrun with fecal bacteria. What comes with that are other things like syringes, Hepatitis A and other infectious diseases.”
Not too long ago, I wrote an entire article about the struggles that Los Angeles is facing regarding the mountains of trash and piles of human feces that are seemingly everywhere, and these unsanitary conditions are being blamed for the sudden outbreak of typhus cases…
Officials have not managed to explain why typhus is suddenly spreading in the area as nine cases have been recorded in downtown LA in the past two months. They are investigating the issue.
Several homeless people who live near City Hall have also contracted the diseases as human waste and trash litters the nearby sidewalks.
San Francisco’s escalating homeless crisis continues to impact thousands of residents across the Bay Area, with officials confirming they’ve responded to nearly 6,700 reports of “human waste” in the first quarter of 2019 alone.
The city’s rodent population has now “exploded” into a serious public health risk.
“Rats are everywhere,” Niamh Quinn, Human-Wildlife Interactions Advisor with University of California, told KNBC Los Angeles in June. “And it’s just not acceptable to expose people to this amount of disease.”
“Baltimore’s rat problem is bad enough that at one point, rats tunneled so intensely beneath a particular area of pavement that when garbage collectors drove over it, their truck sunk up to its axles,” reported the TV network. “Rats in the vicinity took full advantage of the mishap and swarmed the truck, gorging on the garbage inside.”
The network listed Baltimore number 3 on the “Top 10 Worst Rat Cities in the World.”
The grand prize, however, must be awarded to Chicago. Topping Orkin’s list for four years running, the city is America’s undisputed rat king. According to a separate study conducted by the apartment search service Rent Hop, Chicago officials received more rat complaints than any other city in the country in 2017, observing a 55 percent increase over the three years prior.
