Be Aware

  • Ten Chicago-area patients have tested positive for an unusual type of drug-resistant influenza, prompting concern and increased surveillance by local and federal health officials.

    The strain of flu can be successfully treated with some drugs, but it does not respond to Tamiflu, the most common antiviral medication for flu. The Illinois Department of Public Health issued a health alert to doctors and hospitals Thursday suggesting that flu patients who are in intensive care receive a combination of drugs until their virus can be analyzed.

    Officials said eight of the Tamiflu-resistant infections came from an outbreak at a single Chicago health-care facility, the name of which they have not released.
We'd be willing to bet we know where more than a few of those patients are being housed at the moment. And being as the police come into contact with all sorts of persons with less than adequate hygienic practices, be sure you're aware of what your arrestee might be carrying that ISN'T visible to the naked eye.

Say it ain't so, can't be happening in this SANCTUARY city. Don't forget about Tuberculosis(sp?) making a comeback, along with measles, mumps and chickenpox.

Don't be fooled. It's not just an arrestee that may carry and spread germs.....just the other day I saw a female sergeant sneeze heavily into both hands and after rubbing her hands together in an apparent effort to dry them she proceeded to use the keyboard of the computer that others will use.

Keyboards have been rated high on the list of surfaces laden with a variety of germs.

Not just arrestees.

How about the "Homeless Hypes" that frequent our police stations for a quick nap or to warm up.

Or here's one better. Does anyone know how long it takes city services to pick up a "Homeless" person or family as they wait in the police station.

This is no joke, but it's actually 1-3 Days. The City That Works.

These people have a better chance breaking a car window to get arrested in order to be sheltered.

Yeah and it won't be IOD. Catching a cold at work means you go on the medical. Just like T.B. if you catch that try and prove it was IOD.

You got homeless bums living in the front lobbies of most westside police stations. The hall smells of piss and stink.

Leave it to the people of the Ghetto. Have money for booze and smokes but not health care. I hate this city, I hate this county, I hate this state. I am going west into the mountains where they lack the others.

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE??
I turn on the news today and eight people were killed in a car racing incident in the east. Everyday someone somewhere is killed either driving or on foot. When are they going to wake up and quit selling cars. When will they outlaw them. When are the clergy going to picket dealerships and auto plants. Outlaw the import of autos and trucks.
STOP THE KILLING!!!!

Booze and smokes are health care.

How many of dem viruses can survive in an environment saturated in alcohol and nicotine?
