Tuberculosis Breaks Out at #Occupy Atlanta Camp

That camp is just chock full of win. They’re the ones who call-and-response blew Rep. John Lewis off when he wanted to address them, and that’s the camp of the genius who said they were there to protest “against equality and change.” How about protesting against a disease that’s no longer a problem in most of the civilized world?

“Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB),” said Fulton County Services Director Matthew McKenna in a written statement to CBS Atlanta. “One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition. All person(s) identified as positive have begun treatment and are being monitored to ensure that medication is taken as directed.”

The Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless has indicated that two cases have been made public knowledge to the group, the first coming from someone who contracted the disease in September. The identities of the people who have contracted the disease, however, have not been disclosed by the health department to this point.

I guess they’ll haftin’ to be inoculated.
