Bed Bugs in the City Health Department

This news report has a hint of irony. A single bedbug was discovered at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in Queens, forcing a temporary evacuation and fumigation of the facility. Per Health Department officials, this was not an infestation. It is, however, pesky and embarrassing. 

While this may be a figurative black eye on the face of the Health Department, the health consequences of  bedbugs are minimal as they are not known to be vectors of disease transmission. 

The anxiety, however, is real. I have blogged about this before.
