Nasty Lubbock Gets Nastier With Shigellosis Outbreak
What the hell? Out of all of the preventable diseases, Lubbock gets this one?
Let's back up a bit. How would you like a bout with volcanic diarrhea from four to seven days? That's what you get with Shigellosis.
Of course, you get stomach cramps and it would be near impossible to not get dehydrated as well. Everything Lubbock is reporting that the Lubbock Health Department saw an uptick from three cases last year to 21 cases this year.
So what about that miracle cure to stop the spread of Shigella? It's WASH YOUR DAMN HANDS.
That's all you have to do to prevent this disease from spreading from person to person. It's also important that you be about 24 hours free of any symptoms before you return to work or school.
