Fears of a widespread pandemic are intensifying.
The rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs has people deeply concerned.
And now one major city is dangerously close to experiencing a serious outbreak.
Dr. Drew Pinsky has made a name for himself as a prominent counselor on various television and radio shows.
And Dr. Drew is very worried that Los Angeles is on the brink of chaos due to the rise of infectious disease.
In 2018, Pinsky accurately predicted Los Angeles would experience a huge uptick in typhus infection as a result of the homelessness crisis that has spun out of control.
The surge in homelessness in major Democratic strongholds, particularly on the West Coast, has created severe public health externalities.
The homeless population, which is comprised almost exclusively of people with mental illness and/or substance abuse problems, has been permitted to live in abject conditions on the street.
Democratic lawmakers believe this is “compassionate.”
However, local police departments are furious over the orders to allow these tent cities to exist, and with them come unsanitary conditions and rats.
Rats and fleas are spreading diseases all over the city, even to areas away from the encampments.
Pinsky said of the crisis:
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now…We have the three prongs of airborne disease, tuberculosis is exploding, rodent-borne. We are one of the only cities in the country that doesn’t have a rodent control program, and sanitation has broken down.”
Pinsky also believes that the bubonic plague, a pandemic that killed millions across medieval Europe, is likely already in Los Angeles.
Democrats continue to bang the drum of funding and lack of housing, but Pinsky makes the point that these homeless people are mostly unwell and reject housing when offered.
“The government is somehow insisting that housing is the problem when in fact we have chronic mental illness, we have addiction, we have people who don’t want to leave the streets…They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them.”
Also, the LAPD recently revealed that a handful of officers were exposed to typhus after dealing with a homeless shantytown.
Los Angeles isn’t the only city.
San Francisco and Seattle have seen exponential growth in the homeless population, which has brought about a major spike in crime.
Car break-ins are now commonplace.
Some citizens have resorted to leaving their cars unlocked and the windows rolled down, which serves as a sign to would-be thieves that there’s nothing of value in the car.
San Francisco notoriously has a smartphone app that tells citizens where there have been reports of human feces on the streets.
Lawmakers refuse to do anything besides claim they need more funding.
Pinsky had even more ire for the city of Los Angeles.
“Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this,” he said. “No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk.”
Infectious disease is on the rise, these cities are on the brink of collapse, and nobody seems concerned about the population at large.
The “compassion” shown to homeless people isn’t compassion at all, and the entire city is feeling the effects.
This is why it’s important for people to take survival into their own hands.
Make sure you’re prepared to handle a disease outbreak because these ineffective lawmakers don’t seem intent on solving the problem.
