TPB: Worst TB outbreak in 20 years kept secret

Worst TB outbreak in 20 years kept secret | www.palmbeachpost.com

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer


The CDC officer had a serious warning for Florida health officials in April: A tuberculosis outbreak in Jacksonville was one of the worst his group had investigated in 20 years. Linked to 13 deaths and 99 illnesses, including six children, it would require concerted action to stop.

That report had been penned on April 5, exactly nine days after Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed the bill that shrank the Department of Health and required the closure of the A.G. Holley State Hospital in Lantana, where tough tuberculosis cases have been treated for more than 60 years.

As health officials in Tallahassee turned their focus to restructuring, Dr. Robert Luo’s 25-page report describing Jacksonville’s outbreak — and the measures needed to contain it – went unseen by key decision makers around the state. At the health agency, an order went out that the TB hospital must be closed six months ahead of schedule.

Seems if there is some messed up news, it has to be coming from Florida.

You have to make laws holding people like this accountable. I mean jail time, serious jail time. No sense or no place for people like this on this world. I have zero sympathy for pathetic individuals like this.

I found this ironic considering this:
