The “Black Death” was so horrendous that despite happening over 600 years ago, it remains etched in, at least, European memory. It had about a 60% fatality rate. 💀
Plague is a disease caused by Yersinia pestis, a gram-negative, coccobacillus bacteria. It infects humans initially from infected flea bites- fleas that can live on urban brown rats. It can then spread human to human. The different ‘forms’ (pneumonic- lungs, bubonic- lymph nodes, septicaemic- bloodstream) are essentially named for where in the human they infect. The important thing here being that if bubonic plague is untreated and becomes pneumonic, that allows for airborne spread: spread is then more rapid and it is unfortunately more likely to be fatal. 😷
Since August, Madagascar has been experiencing an outbreak- as of 10th November, there were 2119 confirmed/probable/suspected cases (there are usually up to 400 cases a year in the country) and 171 deaths (remarkably “only” an 8% fatality rate- this should put Plague in modern times into perspective.) 💊
Despite the fear we have from its name, Plague is VERY treatable if caught early enough. Simple measures (avoid big gatherings, avoid being bitten, contact tracing) has meant that thankfully, Madagascar is seeing a decline in new cases. My thoughts are with them.
