[Ed. – City prosecutor = middle-class lawyer, not a homeless person living on the street. She thinks she must have contracted typhus from fleas that live on the rats in the LA City Hall. USA in 2019.]
Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches. …
Greenwood believes she contracted typhus from fleas in her office at City Hall East. Fleas often live on rats, which congregate in the many heaps of trash that are visible across the city of LA, and are a breeding ground for typhus.
“There are rats in City Hall and City Hall East,” Greenwood added. “There are enormous rats and their tails are as long as their bodies.”
Last year set a new record for the number of typhus cases — 124 in LA County for the year, according to the California Department of Public Health.
