Dr. Drew Pinsky Say Bubonic Plague ‘Likely’ In Los Angeles
The city of Los Angeles is becoming a dumpster fire. With just under 5 million people in the area and a growing homelessness issue, the city is setting the stage for the next major pandemic. According to Dr. Drew Pinksy, the bubonic plague has likely already penetrated the city limits.
“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” Pinsky told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “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.”
If that’s not enough to inspire you to get your pandemic survival prepping in place, I’m not sure what is.
The bubonic plague, also known as “Black Death,” killed millions during the 14th century through a massive global plague. Pinksy says it is likely that the same plague is already in Los Angeles.
The plauge is spread through fleas, deceased animals, and human body fluids.
“This is unbelievable. I can’t believe I live in a city where this is not Third World. This is medieval,” Pinsky said, according to Fox News. “Third World countries are insulted if they are accused of being like this. No city on Earth tolerates this. The entire population is at risk.”
Pinsky says that many of the homeless in the area are not of sound mind and won’t accept any precautionary housing.
“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,” Pinsky said. “They literally won’t take the housing if we give it to them. And that’s the population that’s vulnerable, and is going to get so ill this summer. It scares me for their well-being.”
Pinksy also called California’s stance on illegal immigration “disgustingly negligent.”
According to the Associated Press, homelessness in San Fransisco has increased by 17%. That doesn’t include Oakland, there the increase is near an astounding 43%. The human feces issue in San Fransisco has recieved national headlines. The image of a map showing every instance of human feces in public spaces has been shared over 11,000 times.
Earlier this month, the bubonic plague killed two in Mongolia.
Last year, a report surfaced detailing California’s growing middle-class homeless situation. Many middle-class Californians are sleeping in their cars. The northern part of the state is becoming even more abject. Videos by BART commuters show what appears to be a zombie homelessness issue due to poverty and extreme drug use.
