Default China's new attack of bubonic plague

Well from times past when the worst was killing mankind, the Bubonic Plague has come to China.
And might surface in other locations. Yet because of the contents being copy righted I can just give up the link.

Science yet they copyright it so less can read it unless they stumble upon it. These idiot care more for their credits than they do about the average person.

UPDATE:

Granny says, "Dat's right - it's the end time plague - we all gonna die...

Plague Spreading Rapidly in Madagascar
Saturday 30th September, 2017 - The World Health Organization warns a highly infectious, deadly form of pneumonic plague is spreading rapidly in Madagascar and quick action is needed to stop it.
Quote:
Pneumonic plague, which is transmitted from person to person, has been detected in several cities in Madagascar. This worries the World Health Organization as the disease is highly contagious and quickly causes death without treatment. Plague is endemic to Madagascar resulting in around 400 cases annually. Most are cases of bubonic plague, which is spread by the fleas of rats and other small rodents. The disease is usually confined to rural areas, but this year it has spread to large urban areas and port cities.

WHO spokesman, Tarik Jasarevic, says cases of bubonic, as well as the human transmissible pneumonic plague have been found in the capital Antananarivo and the port cities of Majunga and Toamasina. 'So far, 104 cases of plague were reported since the first case has been identified that was dating from the 23rd of August,' said Jasarevic. 'So, from the 23rd of August to 28th September, 104 cases that have been reported, including 20 deaths."


Jasarevic notes the fatality rate is more than 19 percent. He tells VOA this outbreak is very dangerous and must be brought under control quickly. "The plague epidemic season usually runs from September to April, so we really are at the beginning of the epidemic season of plague,' said Jasarevic. 'And, we have already from the 23rd of August until yesterday-so that is like five-weeks-time-we had 104 cases and again half of those cases were pneumonic plague."

WHO says urgent public health response in terms of surveillance and treatment is required. The health agency has released $250,000 from its emergency fund to get immediate action underway. It plans to appeal for $1.5 million to fully respond to the needs.

Government bans public meetings to reduce infections...

Madagascar plague kills 24, triggering WHO fears
Sunday 1st October, 2017 - The World Health Organisation said Sunday it was boosting its response to a plague outbreak in Madagascar that has killed 24 people, as the government banned public meetings to reduce infections.
Quote:
In a televised address on Saturday, Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana said no public meetings or demonstrations would be allowed in the capital Antananarivo, which has seen six deaths in recent days. "At airports and bus stations, measures will be taken for passengers to avoid panic and to control the disease," he added after an emergency meeting with the UN health agency. Madagascar has suffered plague outbreaks almost every year since 1980, often sparked by rats fleeing forest fires. The current outbreak was unusual as it had affected large urban areas, increasing the risk of transmission, the WHO warned.

Technical guidance

The outbreak is a mix of bubonic plague, which spreads by infected rats via flea bites, and pneumonic plague spread person-to-person. The highly infectious disease killed millions of people across the world in the past before being largely wiped out. "WHO is concerned that plague could spread further because it is already present in several cities and this is the start of the epidemic season," Charlotte Ndiaye, WHO representative in Madagascar, said in a statement Sunday. "Our teams are on the ground in Madagascar providing technical guidance."


The first death this year occurred on August 28 when a passenger died in a public taxi en route to a town on the east coast. Two others who came into contact with the passenger also died. Officials are trying to identify people who came into contact with a basketball coach from the Seychelles who died of plague in Antananarivo on Wednesday while visiting the island for a sports event.

Emergency response

Plague can be cured with antibiotics but can be fatal within 24 hours if it affects the lungs. On Saturday, the health ministry said the death toll had risen to 24 from 19 on Thursday, with more than 100 infected. The recurrent outbreaks in Madagascar have been attributed to poor hygiene and insufficient healthcare. The government said one girl among the dead had apparently been involved in a ceremony retrieving the bodies of deceased family members, rewrapping their remains and dancing with the corpses. WHO has released $300 000 in emergency funds, as well as extra supplies of antibiotics and protective equipment. It appealed for $1.5 million to fund the emergency response.

SO climate change is going to end civilization?

And over population is going to cause the plague to wipe us out in the mean time?

Oh my I want nothing to do with your chicken little fear filled life.

No wonder you smoke what you do. Maybe your doing a bit to much of it.

Did I say anything to make you conclude either the above or your comment on over population?

And over population is going to cause the plague to wipe us out in the mean time?

Your an azz Kirk, sorry but it is plain as day light.. What I did point to was, that we face some hard choices ahead, which we all need to discuss.

And your hateful ash can't understand simple...
