In 2017, San Diego was hit with a hepatitis A epidemic that
killed 20 and infected 600 people, many of whom were homeless.
Mass vaccinations were issued and the city had to face its
growing homelessness crisis head-on before the epidemic spread
even more. In San Francisco, where rents average about $3,700,
growing encampments and a lack of shelter beds could push the
city to the brink of a similar healthcare crisis. Unsanitary
conditions can lead to a rapid spread of hepatitis A and other
health maladies. (Bisnow)
