THE PLAGUE In The US: Idaho Child Diagnosed With ‘Black Death’

    In what is only the fifth case of bubonic plague in humans in the state of Idaho, the diagnosis of a child with the disease is sparking concerns.  The unidentified child, who lives in Elmore County, is recovering from the bacterial infection.

    According to WCVB 5, an ABC affiliate, Central District Health Department epidemiologists say it is not known whether the child was exposed to plague in Idaho or during a recent trip to the state of Oregon. Since 1940, only five human cases of plague have been reported in the Gem State (Idaho). The last two reported cases occurred in 1991 and 1992, with both patients fully recovering.

    But the plague was common in Madagascar toward the end of last year. That outbreak was the worst in Madagascar in 50 years. Between August 1, 2017, and October 30, 2017, there were a total of 1801 probable and suspected cases of plague, including 127 deaths, as reported by the Ministry of Health of Madagascar to World Health Organization.

    The plague, also known as the “Black Death,” is infamous for killing millions of people in Europe during the Middle Ages. Of course, now,  modern medicine has given rise to antibiotics, which are effective in treating plague. However, without prompt treatment, the disease can cause serious illness or death.  The United States is also facing an anti-biotics resistance in those who have taken the drugs often in the past. 

    It is inevitable that each drug will lose its ability to kill disease-causing bacteria over time, says Marc Sprenger, the Director of the World Health Organization’s secretariat for antimicrobial resistance. This is because bacteria, through natural selection and genetic adaptation, become resistant to antibiotics. Essentially, bacteria, like most living things, evolve for survival.

    The best way to prepare for any superbug (a bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics) is to prevent the human body from contracting an infection and therefore, from rejecting antibiotic medications.Ready Nutrition

    Epidemiologists say this particular case serves as a reminder that the plague is still dangerous and infectious to both humans and their pets, but the disease should not discourage recreationists from enjoying Idaho’s outdoors. People can greatly reduce their risk of becoming infected with plague by taking simple precautions, including avoiding contact with wild rodents, their fleas, and rodent carcasses.  Do not feed rodents in picnic or campground areas and never handle sick or dead rodents.

    So basically, don’t play with dead things. But you should also consider trying to keep your pets from roaming and hunting ground squirrels or other rodents in affected desert areas and talk to your veterinarian about using an appropriate flea control product on pets as not all products are safe for cats, dogs or children. Sick pets should be immediately examined promptly by a veterinarian, especially if they may have had contact with sick or dead rodents and live in close proximity to humans.

    See your doctor if you have any unexplained illness involving a sudden and severe fever after being in a plague-endemic area. Clean up areas near your home where rodents can live, such as woodpiles, and put hay, wood, and compost piles as far away as possible and don’t leave any pet food or water where rodents or other wild animals can access them.

    Signs and symptoms of the bacterial infection often creep up within just a few hours after infection and include a bloody cough, difficulty breathing, high fever, nausea, vomiting, headache, and weakness. If it is not treated quickly, pneumonic plague is almost always fatal.

      1. The Bubonic plagues in history coincided with the changes in climate brought on by solar cycles. Sunspot activities go on an eleven year cycle but there are also longer cycles which are marked by grand solar maximums and minimums. We are currently at the start of a grand solar minimum (gsm) where sunspots are at their lowest point in numbers. The gsm is marked by colder- than-normal temperatures and intense rains. This causes famines which in turn drives animals indoors. With the animals comes the plagues. Weird weather phenomena such as freak snowstorms and early freezes where they shouldn’t occur are starting to show up. This is contrary to global climate change so the MSM aren’t reporting it. As always, the climatologists are arguing about how serious the problem will get. The gsm are related to the mini ice ages in history.

        • I can see a “sheeple” who runs on Demon-rat talking points sponsored by George Soros! What caused the great, wide spread epidemic that swept Europe centuries ago??? Global Warming??? What causes plague today is illegals coming here with NO health check before allowing them to come in and suck the welfare system dry! Wake the hell up!!

          • I think that climate change is allegorically true, like other myths.

            The ptb seem to be substituting key words but signaling their intentions, over public channels, imhblo.

            Like, if you spoke in nicknames and hints and people were supposed to catch your drift.

      2. It is probably from one of these sweet, peace loving muslims or some other garden variety foreign trash invading this damn place.

      3. Perhaps a “setup”.

      4. Europeans alive today probably carry genes that helped their ancestors survive.

        During the Middle Ages, infected fleas were on rats aboard trade ships coming from China to Europe.

        Plant lavender in your yard. Lavender repels ticks and fleas. Add lavender oil to coconut, apricot, grape seed, or any other oil or lotion. Put lavender under you pillow. It is a sleep aide. Add lavender to your life and forget about this horrible plague.


        Open Border Policy is treason. We have traitors in government. We have enemies with enormous power because of their ability to control the purse. IMHO change must begin with
        economic independence from the system. Buy silver and gold coins. Trade with them. Slowly but surely returning “power to the people”. (Excuse me for borrowing a Communist slogan.)


      5. and be sure to keep your dogs from chasing squirrels.

        HA MOFOING HA !

      6. I like dogs and pets in general also, but they are too much trouble to care for properly in todays economic reality.

      7. Just as an FYI there is nothing special about this plague story. The plague, along with Hantavirus shows up in a number of western states every year.

        • True. A wet spring in the southwest a few years ago increased the food supply that rodents eat. The rodent population exploded. The plague or the Hantavirus appeared. About half dozen people became infected. Some were infected when they entered small shacks that were not ventilated.

      8. William Talaber, what we need is “We the People” to place our bodies between Mexico and the U.S. The damn system in this country is broke! No politician in D.C. or state government gives a rats behind about the people they’re supposed to represent. The system is broke,and it needs to be torn down,people need to be hung and new people put in who represent US.

      9. Black Death? Could you be more dramatic? I live in Elmore Co. Idaho & no one is in a panic. Plague happens in the deserts of the US every year & is easily treated. This is straight up fear mongering. Shame on you.

        • Most of us are subconsciously accepting a Medieval, s-hole country as the new normal, so should re-learn, either, how to deal with these diseases in the old fashioned or modern way.

          Practical people (if any are in these comments) should acknowledge, if they are being exposed, and take practical measures.

          Fight, flight, or freeze.
