I got itchy reading your OP.
This is more of a hygiene issue than social issue
That is kind of gross, but lice outbreaks are quite common. Glad I have never had it.
Via Jim Treacher, insert the obligatory joke about “parasites” here. That’s the first clip below; the second, also via Treach and fully self-explanatory, shows the “Occupy” ethos in microcosm. Their first, last, and seemingly only goal right now is to stay put at all costs; whatever consequences might flow from that are something they can worry about tomorrow. And that leads directly to the third clip, this time via Verum Serum but also from Occupy Portland. What happens as the reality dawns that the camp is “a growing clusterf***er” filled with drugs and “sex offenders”? (Follow the link to VS if you need a transcript to follow along.) There’s no way for them to clean up without expelling troublemakers in the group, but the troublemakers have as much a right to be there and “protest” as the rest do. The next stage, maybe: “Occupy” leaders joining forces with police to target the miscreants in their midst?
The occupiers at Occupy Portland decided to take the protest into their own kitchen tent and demand change in the middle of a meal service. Why? Because life at the camp has become such a disaster that they need to occupy their own occupation. The audio is a bit hard to make out but I’m pretty sure my transcription below is accurate (I’ve removed the response part of the chant and there are a few words I couldn’t make out):
Dear Parent or Guardian:
This letter is to inform you that a case of head lice has been discovered in your child's school.
Head lice are nothing to panic or be embarrassed about.
There are 8–12 million cases of head lice in our country each year.
The presence of head lice is in no way indicative of a lack of cleanliness.
In fact, with relatively easy-to-use treatments, lice are easily eliminated.
Should you suspect that your child has been exposed to lice, the following steps may help control the spread of this problem.....etc. www.ridlice.com...
Recently, bed bugs were even discovered throughout the metropolitan New York City. The Manhattan location for Victorias Secret discovered the insects in isolated areas on Saturday.
A slew of sources are reporting that bed bugs have been found in both the men’s and women’s locker rooms at the posh Reebok Club on Columbus & 67th. myupperwest.com...

You ever seen hundreds of bed bugs ? www.ebaumsworld.com...
Imo this was bound to happen when people occupy the streets for a long time, and it'll only get worse.
