LOS ANGELES - April 9, 2015 - Hundreds of years ago when 200,000,000
million people worldwide died, survivors began believing "The Black
Death" ( also known as ) "Bubonic Plague" disappeared.
On April 3, 2015 within the County Of Conconino ( near U.S. Interstate
40 / I-40 ), Picture Canyon, Arizona, USA became 'ground zero' for the
Bubonic Plague outbreak.
On April 4, 2015 the Bubonic Plague spread to the City of Flagstaff,
Arizona according to officials.
Researchers believe Bubonic Plague may be attributable to America's
Southwest climate, topography, and rodent populations that are now
similar to that of Central Asia high desert grasslands from where the
Bubonic Plague emerged.
David Wagner, a professor at the Microbial Genetics and Genomics
Center Northern Arizona University Microbial Genetics and Genomics
Center professor David Wagner said, “It [ Bubonic Plague ] found a
similar place to make a new home."
Bubonic Plague Is Spread By Fleas On Squirrels, Rabbits, Rodents, And
Their Animal Predators ( e.g. Dogs, Wolves, Etc. ) Too
Arizona health officials and wildlife managers are now actively
monitoring an 'outbreak of deadly flea infestations' after many
specimens began rolling in from what was first noticed at a 'den of
prairie dogs' that tested positive' for the Yersinia pestis bacteria
known as Black Death or Bubonic Plague.
Feeding Frenzie Flea Attacks
Area officials became worried when both unusually high numbers of
prairie dogs experienced 'substantially aggressive flea bites' and
infections before being found dead and dying in an area known as
Picture Canyon near the City of Flagstaff so, officials began testing
dens and burrows in the surrounding areas where indeed Black Death
Bubonic Plague bacteria was again found to be the culprit.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services indicates, that:
- Historically over periods in time, The Black Death Bubonic Plague
outbreaks fluctuate largely by climate conditions forcing 'populations
to encounter more fleas' - spread by rodents to other animals (
livestock ) like 'pets in much closer contact with people / family
- As climate changes worsen, rodent's fleas will more become more
frequently mixed with people likely witnessing a rise in Bubonic
According to the U.S. federal Center for Disease Control and
Prevention Studies ( CDC ), people usually contract Bubonic Plague,
after they are:
A. Bitten by a flea carrying Bubonic Plague; and / or,
B. Handling any animal infected with Bubonic Plague.
To prevent the spread of Bubonic Plague from animals to humans, people should:
1. Use insect repellents when hiking or working in areas that could
possibly contain fleas.
2. Not let pets roam free; and,
3. Treat pets with flea prevention medications.
Bubonic Plague infection usually appears within 2-days to 8-days after
initially infected by flea(s).
Bubonic Plague symptoms, include:
Skin Spots ( like Freckles );
Sputum ( tinged with blood );
Neck Pain / Swelling ( pus bumps );
Groin Pain / Swelling ( pus bumps );
Armpit Pain / Swelling ( pus bumps ); and / or,
Bubonic Plague antibiotics are usually effective, however if not
detected quickly and treated Bubonic Plague leads to severe illness
Professionals have argued the point similarities between Bubonic
Plague and a dimilar form of infectious disease characterized as
hemorrhagic ( haemorrhagic ) plague similar to Ebola.
The plague bacterium could develop drug-resistance and again become a
major health threat.
From 1944 through 1993, three-hundred sixty-two ( 362 ) people
contracted human plague reported in the United States where 90%
occurred in four ( 4 ) western states:
In 1995, the plague was confirmed in the United States from nine ( 9 )
