Los Angeles faces an imminent bubonic plague outbreak due to rampant homelessness

(Natural News) The City of Angels is on the verge of succumbing to a deadly disease epidemic, thanks to an out-of-control homeless problem that’s bringing back horrific contagions like bubonic plague that rarely make an appearance in the First World. According to Dr. Drew Pinsky, a celebrity radio doctor who was blacklisted from the mainstream...

Authors: Sabbatani S, Fiorino S, Manfredi R Abstract In the year 1527, following the invasion of Italy by Landsknechts, who were headed by Georg von Frundsberg, the bubonic plague appeared in the country. These soldiers were part of an army that Charles V sent to invade Italy in order to subjugate the Italian states which had adhered to the League of Cognac. In Bologna during the year 1527 believers held a procession from the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso, through the city, as far as the Church of San Rocco. The reason for this practice was linked with the plague epidemic. After some cases of plague observe...

An infectious outbreak can conclude in more ways than one, historians say. But for whom does it end, and who gets to decide?

By Jan LundiusSTOCKHOLM / ROME, Apr 30 2020 (IPS) For some time Wuhan in China and Lombardy in Italy were epicentres of the COVID-19 virus, something that has changed when the contagion is spreading fast in the US. A Lombardy in the grip of a deadly epidemic might among several Italians give rise to memories of their school days. For almost a century, Alessando Manzoni’s massive novel The Betrothed (I promessi sposi) from 1842 has been obligatory reading for all Italians during their last primary school year. A quite impressive endeavour considering that the novel is more than 700 pages long. I assume almost every a...

First of three epidemic/pandemic related posts, but going beyond the medical and health science.As it happens, I was reading this book when the current coronavirus outbreak started.  There is aninteresting piece about the book, written at the end of last week, on Literary Hub.The novel describes a fictional outbreak of bubonic plague in the town of Oran in Algeria, people's reactions to it, and each other, and the decisions that had to be taken.I am not (and neither is the author of the piece) comparing COVID-19 to bubonic plague but reading the story now does make some of those issues take on a certain relevance.

As the world grapples with a global health emergency that is COVID-19, many are drawing parallels with a pandemic of another infectious disease – influenza – that took the world by storm just over 100 years ago. We should hope against hope that this one isn’t as bad, but the 1918 flu had momentous long-term consequences – not least for the way countries deliver healthcare. Could COVID-19 do the same? The 1918 flu pandemic claimed at least 50 million lives, or 2.5 per cent of the global population, according to current estimates. It washed over the world in three waves. A relatively mild wave in the ...

(Natural News) From malaria, to Ebola, or even the flu, tons of diseases break out and kill hundreds or even thousands of people every year. Any of these diseases could easily turn into an epidemic. For example, in 2017 an outbreak of the bubonic plague – the same plague that killed 60 percent of Europe...

In Madagascar, where a severe plague epidemic has unfolded since August 2017, the number of new infections is finally in decline. WHO is supporting health authorities to respond to the outbreak, from setting up specialized plague treatment units in health centres, to distributing medicines across the country. A particularly effective action has involved training teams to find people who have been in contact with a pneumonic plague patient – a system known as "contact tracing" – to help ensure these contacts are protected from falling sick themselves. Rakoto,* a 17-year-old man from Antananarivo, began...

Madagascar ’s unprecedented outbreak of pneumonic plague is slowing down but the response must be sustained, WHO cautioned on Monday (November 27). “The worst of the outbreak is over, but we must stand ready to detect and respond to new infections until the end of the plague season in April 2018,” said WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Have you ever thought that it would be possible to monitor drug overdoses, Zika cases or the spread of the flu in real time? Have you ever imagined that satellites wouldbe able to tell how and where a malaria epidemic will happen months before the actual outbreak? It is mind-blowing how, in the last years, digital maps developed to a level where they serve as effective tools for evaluating, monitoring and even predicting health events. That’s why I decided to give a comprehensive overview of digital maps in healthcare. John Snow, cholera and the revolution of maps in healthcare Before Game of Thrones monopolized Joh...
