There are several reasons, that seem good to me, why Occupiers should go home. Not the least of these is the risk of infection. With antibiotics not working the way they once did, the risk is much greater for the nation and the world than it would otherwise be.
The world is being driven towards the “unthinkable scenario of untreatable infections”, experts are warning, because of the growth of super-bugs resistant to all antibiotics and the dwindling interest in developing new drugs to combat them.
It seems that the people ‘occupying’ the cities are not really concerned with sanitation. Mail-online has covered the story of how filth is a problem in New York.
These are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York’s financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions.
Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.
Elsewhere we found piles of stinking refuse clogging Zuccotti Park, despite the best efforts of many of the protesters to keep the area clean.
The shocking images demonstrate the extent to which conditions have deteriorated as demonstrations in downtown Manhattan enter their fourth week. Further pictures seen by Mail Online have been censored, as we deemed them too graphic to show.
When conditions such as these result in drug resistant infections, not only are those who are ‘protesting’ affected, so are we all.
We can only hope that those funding this protest will put an end to it soon.
