2 additional cases of Meningitis reported

BY TROY MASTERS  |  2 new cases of Infectious Meningococcal Disease (IMD), one involving a gay man and the second an “adult female,”  has been reported by the Long Beach Department of Public Health, bringing the total cases in this reported “outbreak” to 11.  One person of the original 9 cases reported in June has died.

“To date, investigations have not determined any common social linkages among cases in the region,” according to a Los Angeles County Epidemiology Report posted today.

As reported in The Pride LA on June 29, 2016, an outbreak of Infectious Meningococcal Disease is underway.

While the California Department of Public Health has stressed that the cases are considered an “outbreak,” the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) has been reluctant to use that term.

In an email to The Pride Los Angeles, Ronald Owen, a spokesperson for the California Department of Public Health, pointed out  “the word “outbreak” appears five times in their June 24 news release.  Subhead: “Outbreak” Identified in Southern California…First sentence/first graph: “Outbreak” of invasive meningococcal disease occurring in Southern California…Third graph: Several “outbreaks” (first sentence), similar “outbreaks” and these “outbreaks” (last sentence)  And the word “clusters” appears once, in the fourth graph: Several outbreaks and ‘clusters.'”

In a Health Alert for medical professionals and patient caretakers, issued by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, dated June 24, use of the word “outbreak” is stressed.  However, in a separate release intended for the general public the word was carefully omitted and they instead stressed the urgent need for men who have sex with men to get vaccinated.

The Center’s for Disease Control is reportedly sending a team to investigate.

A press conference is scheduled for July 7, 2016 at the Los Angeles Lesbian and Gay Center.  At that press conference the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is expected to again stress the urgency for vaccination for gay men.  At the press conference representatives of Long Beach Department of Public Health and the Pasadena Department of Public Health will also be in attendance.

Currently, LACDPH is targeting some populations with meningitis prevention advertising campaigns, however none are targeted to gay men or to men who have sex with men.
