Published: 4 months ago
Los Angeles Deputy City Attorney, Liz Greenwood, contracted typhus from working at City Hall, which is infested with rats. In 2018, a record-setting 124 cases of the typhus were reported. Mayor Garcetti promised to clean up the heaps of rat-infested trash around Los Angeles to combat the typhus epidemic, but they still are to be seen everywhere, and the infectious disease is worsening.
