Not news. The majority of certain species of rodent are carriers of plague West of the Mississippi. In all but some unfortunate coincidences, it is neither cause for concern nor anything that can be remedied. Generally, public health laws and regulations does more to prevent these problems than does medicine provide a cure.

Litig8r: FTA: Riverside County officials said it was the first test of an animal in the county that showed signs of the plague in nearly a decade.

Isn't it just "Plague?" As in: "He was diagnosed with Plague."

One isn't diagnosed with "the cholera" or "the typhoid" or "the influenza."


But you do get the collywobbles.

Loaf's Tray: Prevention is the key - check your bubons!


It was named so for the swellings, or "buboes", to distinguish it from other plagues (pneumonia, influenza, cholera) that did not produce prominent swellings.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: ricewater_stool: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: The bubonic plague is all over the American Southwest. It probably came to the US in 1866 from China to the West Coast.

And it's treatable, even the pneumonic variety



Not really. If it goes 24 hours before treatment, you're dead. Even for bubonic plague there's a 13% mortality rate with treatment. Yersinia pestis is a nasty critter.

Well obviously if you don't treat it you will die after a short period of time. But it's treatable. Even the pneumonic variety.



It's only treatable if you know you were exposed. If you are showing symptoms of pneumonic plague, you will die. Period.
