Health Department employees recently moved into the Gotham Center building after it was finished last year. The HQ building cost was approximately $316 million. In Health Department’s defense, author of the “Bedbug Survival Guide” Jeff Eisenberg says that there is no shame in what happened as “it can happen to anyone”.
Bedbugs can be easily picked up from common places such as taxis or homes that have bedbugs. From this point on they are carried by a host on their pants or skirts. The Health Department provides solutions and tips against bedbugs infestations for home and business owners. They even have a whole section dedicated to this. Having a bedbug infestation can lead to social exclusion. Will the Health department get out of this situation easily or will people raise questions and doubt the Health department’s professionalism.
