Tijuana’s Health Department reports that out of 6,000 migrants currently residing in the city, over a third of them (2,267) are being treated for health-related issues.  About 60% of the migrants treated have respiratory illnesses, with three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, in addition to at least 101 cases of lice and multiple skin infections.  Officials worry that Hepatitis could break out in the unsanitary conditions.
