Typhus, or typhus fever is an infectious disease spread by fleas. Symptoms can include high fever, headache, chills, and body aches, rashes and in some rare cases, meningitis and even death.
KMI 640AM reports, Oct. 9, 2018, that health officials in Southern California are warning residents to be aware of a typhus outbreak that’s reached ‘epidemic’ levels in some areas.
University of Southern California Associate Professor of Medicine Neha Nanda says “what’s different this year is there’s this clustering of this disease in downtown L.A., so hence the concern of this being an epidemic.”
