Dr. Drew continues to spread awareness about the rise of homelessness in Los Angeles – with dire warnings for the future if the crisis is not addressed quickly.
From ContagionLive.com: The number of people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County rose 12% this year, and increased 16% within the city itself, according to newly released statistics from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.
The uptick in the rate of people without permanent housing, coupled with a dip in the vaccination rate and a rise in medical exemptions to vaccines, has created a trifecta of opportunity for infectious disease that has health experts worried about a potential pandemic. Factor in the crumbling sanitation infrastructure and there are all the makings of a serious public health emergency.
