Kentucky's 'too low and too slow' response to the nation's worst hepatitis A outbreak

Thinly staffed county health departments had seen their budgets shrink. And federal vaccine money for Kentucky had run out.

"There's a very good chance James would be alive" had the state done more earlier to educate and vaccinate people in Appalachia, said his sister, Brandy Stafford. "We are desperate for help in these counties. People are crying out.

"Does the state not think these people's lives are worth something?"

Kentucky racks up one-third of all hepatitis A deaths in US as fatalities keep rising

Hep A outbreak in Ky. nearing 4,000 cases with 40 deaths

Hepatitis A outbreak races across the country

———

Republicans don’t want to talk about this because they don’t want to help these people. It’s a scandal that the media has totally ignored this terrible outbreak.

Appalachia and Kentucky are so poor that diseases that incubate there are starting to spread across the rest of the United States.

Thanks GOP, you did it to us again.
Hmmm. Kentucky must have alot of immigrants. That's where the diseases are coming from, you know.

BTW, I noticed that your post didn't include the word "White" three or four times. You are improving. :04:
How many immigrants does Kentucky have? Are they illegals because tRump won't go after employers that knowingly hire illegals? Are they legal immigrants that have worker visas that daddy bush signed into law? Or are they ancestors of immigrants such as you?

The flooding of low wage workers and democrat welfare has hurt many Americans, we need help, but democrats are focused on increasing the pain and not coming up with solutions
Low wage workers is the fault of greedy employers. Welfare is due to those employers.

I don’t know how many immigrants Kentucky has. The state is nearly 90% white. It’s polluted. They don’t have jobs. And now they’re contagious. I’m not sure a lot of immigrants would want to go there.

Since the outbreaks began in 2016, 30 states have reported cases to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. As of Sept. 20, total cases have reached 26,013 with a 60 percent hospitalization rate.

Michigan warns residents about hepatitis A risks, and latest cases

To stop the spread of the virus, the CDC has recommended that 80 percent of the at-risk population be vaccinated. That translates to about 392,000 people.

Another 64 cases of hepatitis A reported to state

I guess it just isn’t bad enough to be concerned about.

That’s how the majority of Republicans see it?

That's my reality from 30 years in the trenches of our HC system Dean

It's not pretty, we don't give a rodent's rear end about each other here.

you'll also find we've a long history of acquisitions and monopolization that all lead to the insurance cabals coffers.

and while the reps are overt about it, the dems feign sympathy, both are greased by said entity to sell us all out

Homosexuals and criminal illegal aliens are the primary sources of these epidemics. But blame it on dopers so nobody has to lose some votes or offend some deviants and criminals.

So now they're trying to blame Appalachia for the filthy habits of LA's Finest now? lol what a hoot.

So government fails again, and deanturd knee jerk reaction is to parrot insipid bullshit about needing more government.
Because the entire point was that the government offices were understaffed and underfunded, you dumbass....
