Health Officials Warn Parents of Outbreak of Devastating Disease — Chip Yost Reports

IRVINE, Calif. (KTLA) — Health officials in Orange County are warning parents about an outbreak of potentially deadly meningococcal disease tied to Tijuana.

Back in February, 18-year-old Kaitlyn Dobrow, of Huntington Beach, awoke with a bad headache and couldn’t get out of bed.

She began to vomit and had diarrhea.

Her mother then saw what looked like bruising spreading throughout Kaitlyn’s body just below her skin.

They rushed her to an area hospital that day, Kaitlyn was eventually transferred to the UC Irvine Medical Center, where she has been ever since.

Chip Yost has more.
