The Bubonic plague has never gone away.
It is prevented by proper sanitation and pest control.

The Black Death killed a lot of people because, well, the thoughts and prayers do nothing.

As a liberal, I will be SO triggered if they all give themselves bubonic or pneumonic plague.

/The last outbreak in the US was apparently in 1924

FTFA: In May 2019, a couple in Mongolia died of plague after eating the raw marmot kidney, which is considered to be a good remedy for good health in traditional Chinese medicine.

Well, it worked.

Depends if the religious anti-science crazies take over the country since they are obviously trying very hard.
