Two In China Contract Black Plague

2019-11-14 12:57:45

Authorities said Tuesday that two people in China are being treated for pneumonic plague. CNN reports it's the second time the disease has been detected in the region. The condition is the same one that caused the Black Death, one of the deadliest pandemics in human history. In May, a Mongolian couple died from bubonic plague after eating the raw kidney of a marmot, a local folk health remedy. Plague is caused by bacteria and transmitted through flea bites and infected animals. It can develop in three different forms. Bubonic plague causes swollen lymph nodes. Septicemic plague infects the blood and pneumonic plague infects the lungs. Pneumonic is more virulent and damaging. Left untreated, it is always fatal.
