Tuberculosis on skid row


Tuberculosis is a problem in part of Los Angeles:

Persistent strain of TB claims victims on L.A.’s skid row…

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has dispatched scientists to Los Angeles to help local health officials determine why the disease is spreading and how to stop it.

Officials say 11 have died since 2007. Sixty of the 78 cases were among homeless people who live on and around skid row.

Scientists have recently linked the outbreak to a tuberculosis strain that is unique to Los Angeles, with a few isolated cases outside the area.

“This is the largest outbreak in a decade,” said Jonathan Fielding, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. “We are really putting all of our resources into this.”

Health workers have identified about 4,650 people who were probably exposed and are trying to track them down for testing and treatment.,0,4394287.story

While there are various reasons why those on “skid row” (a term referring to areas in cities where more homeless, alcoholics, and drug-addicts tend to reside), are more susceptible to various strains of tuberculosis, it could (directly or indirectly if it changes) infect more of the general population.

Tuberculosis often can be a deadly virus.

Infections are part of the pestilences that the Bible warned about for the end times. Jesus taught:

7…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:6-8)

We seem to be in the time Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows”. There have been “earthquakes in various places” this past year. There are some famines and they may increase soon. Candida, other fungi, bacteria, and viruses are not the only pestilences starting to rise up either.

As Jesus said:

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:36-37)
