    Leptospirosis from BAD water in Puerto Rico, related deaths reported!

    Highly treatable with simple antibiotics. Guess these 'Americans' don't deserve help! Yet again, kids and the already immune deficient and the elderly are highly vulnerable. Remember this is related to 'waste' from animals. How many more people do you think will be immune compromised after these 21 days?

    Puerto Rico investigates post-hurricane disease outbreak

    By ASSOCIATED PRESS
    OCTOBER 11, 2017


    Flood waters like those seen here in San Juan, Puerto Rico, can transmit leptospirosis.RAMON ESPINOSA/AP



    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Four deaths in Hurricane Maria’s aftermath are being investigated as possible cases of a disease spread by animals’ urine, Puerto Rico’s governor said Wednesday amid concerns about islanders’ exposure to contaminated water.

    A total of 10 people have come down with suspected cases of leptospirosis, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said at a news conference.
    On a U.S. territory where a third of customers remain without running water three weeks after the hurricane, some became ill after turning to local streams to relieve their thirst.

    Jorge Antonio Sanyet Morales, a 61-year-old bus driver, took a drink from a stream near his concrete home on a hillside in Canovanas a week after the Sept. 20 storm. He then developed a fever, his skin turned yellow and within a week, he died at a hospital in Carolina, according to his widow, Maritza Rivera

    Dr. Juan Santiago said Sanyet was among five patients who came in his emergency clinic last week with similar symptoms after drinking from streams in Canovanas and Loiza...

    PR are completely incapable of doing a single thing themselves.

    How the hell did they last this long?

    I have never seen such a back assward nation in my life.

    Puerto Rico is a US Commonwealth, and people born there are US citizens.

    tRump's FEMA: "Not our job to deliver water and food to Puerto Ricans

    FEMA says it is not their responsibility to distribute food and water to Puerto Rican survivors of Maria and Irma, according to a recent report by Rachel Maddow.* They can’t be serious?! Oh yes, they are.* *

    That was the response Rachel got when FEMA was asked*why it has been almost 3 weeks since the last hurricane hit Aibonito, a small town high in the mountains about an hour south of San Juan, and FEMA has yet to deliver a single bottle of water.

    FEMA claims the roads aren’t passable, * For the record, when I say “about an hour south” I mean Google Maps puts the drive —*right now —*at 1 hour and 5 minutes if I take the autopista (highway).* BUT it also says there are portions of the road that are closed.* Soooo you have to take route 173 and that takes 1 hour and 24 minutes.* Maybe Google is wrong, right?* It would be nice if someone on the ground could actually make the trip…. oh wait…*what’s that?**The MSNBC film crew already made the trip and*it took them “about an hour and a half.”*
    *
    As the MSNBC*video shows, they got there no problem because the road was clear.*No bridges out, no trees in the way, no mudslides, no raging rivers.* Not even bad hombres.*I realize the last menace*would be Mexicans and there shouldn’t be any Mexicans clogging up the roads in Puerto Rico right now. But we all know to the Trump Klan, Puerto Ricans are just Island Mexicans, so they probably worry about that sort of thing.

    Presented with the fact of Maddow’s team having video evidence directly contradicting their claims,* FEMA*then*dropped this*bombshell:*Apparently, FEMA*says*it is the mayor’s job to distribute food and water. They are just there to help people fill out paperwork. Forget the fact that about half of the people in Puerto Rico have no access to clean water. Forget the fact that it is now confirmed that people are dying from waterborne diseases like leptospirosis because they lack potable water. Forget the fact mayors in small towns didn’t even have satellite phones until a couple days ago.* Forget the fact mayors don’t have fleets of trucks at their disposal. They sure as hell don’t have gas for the trucks they do have.* Oh…*and when they do, look out the window because the situation can always change on you.* That picture above was from Monday in downtown Santurce, on Fernández Juncos, looking towards Isla Grande airport in Miramar.* Good thing FEMA doesn’t have to deal with that.* We’d really be screwed.

    Maybe it’s just too damn bad.* A real tragedy.* If only there was something we could do. If only FEMA could help.* Yeah, I know.* That’s hard to swallow. Especially when FOX News reported THIS about FEMA in Lakeland, FL*responding to the crisis following a recent hurricane that hit there:

    LAKELAND (FOX 13)*-" People who are worn out from Hurricane Irma are getting help in Polk County.
    On Friday, FEMA starting handing out free food and water at 11 different sites around the county, including Victory Church.
    A long line of cars formed at 8 a.m., and continued throughout the day. Many of the people who came still don’t have electricity."

    The difference?* Unlike Aibonito, Lakeland is over 70% white, and that is the darkest part of Polk County.* But I’m sure that has*nothing**to do with it.* While we are pretending this isn’t the most racist federal government in 70 years, explain something to me Mike Pence, you shameless hypocrite.*

    When you stood in a House of God in Puerto Rico and declared from the pulpit*after reading scripture:
    “We are with you today, we are with you tomorrow.”

    The states on the mainland jumped right in and worked alongside the federal government.

    PR isn't doing that.

    They are sitting back bitching and moaning that the federal government isn't doing everything for them.

    Its shameful.

    Are you telling me they don't have one fucking anti-biotic on that whole island?

    This is sickening that the head of FEMA claims they are there to do paperwork when thousands do not have food,water,homes,or any semblance of normal life.

    As for your posts,Spooky,they are a disgrace to the human race. But since you are on posting 24 hours a day, may your wires get twisted and short out.

    You are so fully invested in the tRump Admin's propaganda that you ignore the truth. Don't bother to reply.

    FEMA doesn't have emergency services, they are organizational.

    That is their job is to do paperwork especially in regards to funding and getting it to people quickly. FEMA organizes local and state emergency units, they don't send their own, they don't have any.

    And what business is it of yours how often I post?

    Go study what FEMA does and come back and apologize.
