Skip to comments.City Health Officials Warn Some (Gay) Men on Lethal Strain of Meningitis

It is a variant of a disease that can go from a fever and headache to a galloping rash and then to death within hours so quickly that some victims have been found dead in bed before they could even get to a doctor. Over the last two years, it has appeared only among men, and they often got it, health officials say, through anonymous sexual encounters with other men found through Internet chat rooms or digital apps or at parties, making it all but impossible to trace the path of infection.
It is a unique strain of bacterial meningitis, so new it has not even been named, and it is particularly lethal killing one out of three people instead of the one out of five who succumb to other strains of meningitis.
New York City health officials are growing increasingly worried that this strain of meningitis, which is an inflammation of the lining around the brain and the spinal cord, is so insidious that it could suddenly mushroom into a major outbreak, claiming many lives before anything can be done to stop it.
Its been sort of marching through the community in a way that makes us very scared, Dr. Jay Varma, the deputy commissioner for disease control at the citys health department, said on Thursday.
The department issued a warning this month recommending the standard meningitis vaccination for a particular subset of the population: men, regardless of H.I.V. status, who regularly have intimate contact with other men through a Web site, digital application or at a bar or party.

In their case wouldn’t it be called FAGingitis since they are not MEN.
Meningitis MUST BE homophobic!
Did they expect roses?
You know if the SodomStream media says “some,” it has to be in the tens of thousands.
Sounds like the gay lifestyle is more dangerous to your health than large, sugary drinks. Somehow, I can’t imagine Bloomberg pushing to ban promiscuious gay sex within the NY City limits.
“I cant imagine Bloomberg pushing to ban promiscuious gay sex within the NY City limits.”
Ban, it? He invented it!
Looks like God’s at it again!
Yeah, there are scientific reasons why the rectum is protected by TWO sphincters. It’s because the large intestine is a direct line to the bloodstream. You’re really not supposed to stick stuff in the rectum. That it! No further info necessary.
We can only hope. I had suspected, rather, that HIV would mutate into a much more virulent, and easily communicable, strain to exact judgement on such unrepentant, unholy reprobates. I never thought about another entity being brought into the arsenal.
So yet another decease created by deviancy which will take the lives of innocents because we can’t stop blood donations and organ transplants from these people.
I knew it was coming. Nature has a way of cleansing itself. Homosexuality is anti-nature, and I believe AIDs was designed as a "cleanser" to eliminate it, but man kind got in the way.
I knew nature would come up with something else, only this time it would have to work faster to get the job done.
According to nature and natures God, their acts are an abomination. That's a pretty strong word. You don't make war with nature. Nature will always wins.
I knew another plague would be coming. It had to. I just wondered what it would be, and how it would work. Somehow, nature had to come up with something that would affect mostly homosexuals while still protecting the heterosexuals.
This next plague was inevitable. If this one doesn't do it, nature will come up with another. It's just how nature works. It's how it was designed.
I have yet to have the opportunity to do this-
but I have a libinlaw that’s an MD
very pro-abort and pro-gay.
I want to ask whether male homosexual acts would be medically indicated or contraindicated for someone seeking a long healthy life.
Yes, this one seems to work so quickly that they won’t even have time to make it to the blood bank to infect the blood supply as AIDS did in the 80’s.
Your libinlaw will never admit it, even if you do ask him/her, but the answer is a no-brainer.
Medical schools have succumbed to political correctness decades ago, so I’m not surprised that so many recent MD’s are so brainless.
If it would “save just one life”, shouldn’t Bloomberg ban sodomy, just like 17 oz soda cups and guns?
What if they legalized gay marriage but there were no gays? Well, as Hillary would say, “What difference does it make now?”
We elected two sphincters as President and Vice President.
