Antibiotics treat bacterial infections but not viral infections. The Black Plague is a bacterial infection. Now the bad news.

Fatal Superbugs: Antibiotics Losing Effectiveness

yeah. ebola is the black death. its just not pneumonic.

I love the black death. it is weird because they dug up plague victims in london (whhich I had a rly weird dream about months before it happened. and in the dream a girl in a white funeral robe who was one of the skeletons appeared to the crowd and unleashed a plague. because they shouldnt have been dug up. it unleashed it again.)


not that my dream was literal besides the actual circular dig in london that I saw polaroid clear in the dream and then in the bbc. yeah I was pretty floored then when ebola began.

ive been keeping mum because I hope im wrong and it isnt another sign. but signs are everywhere these days. whl knows anymore. I think we are in the final decades. as awful as that sounds. thats my guess.

Human plague cases from 1989 to 2003

During this period, 38,310 cases (2845 deaths) were recorded in 25 countries, with the highest number of human plague cases being notified in 1991 and the lowest number being reported in 1989.

During the last ten years, at least three geographical areas experienced outbreaks of human plague after silent periods of about 30-50 years:

India - 1994, 2002
Indonesia - 1997
Algeria - 2003


Is a bit of the article

They were on rats in the infamous plague of Medieval times, but actually, in the US they life Prairie Dogs the most and in Asia, they prefer giant marmots I think.

It was theorized that the Death moved along the silk road out of Asia on marmot skins. The fleas couldn't get any sustenance out of the skins of course, so they adapted by moving to other hosts - rats and humans.

Whenever you see incidents of Plague now, it's because something has happened to get the fleas off their preferred hosts. In the US, it's because someone has had close interactions with prairie dogs (or their dogs have) and the fleas have transferred as a result.

can we be sure that the current outbreak is naturally resistant to anti-biotics? who's to say these aren't lab created strains?

If anyone has played the game Plague Inc., they know just how much of a bitch it is to infect Madagascar with your virus. This thing being in Madagascar already pretty much spells our doom if that's anything to go by.

The Plague is always scary but it has never went away.

In North America - our hotspots for the disease is the dry arid areas of the Mid-West.

As scary and horrific as this disease is - I don't think it can find a foot hold any longer like it once did centuries ago. Our hygiene practices, medical advancements, and fore knowledge of what we are dealing with gives us a good upper hand. That and being that the plague is curable.

Besides, being scared of disease is like being scared of life. Fruitless. Just wash your hands, clean your house, treat your animals for fleas, don't hang in big crowds, and go to the doctors when you get very very ill - and when you fall ill (with anything) you fight like hell to get well.

You'll be fine.

Nonsense story. Bubonic plague has never gone away; there have always been reservoirs of infection in India and elsewhere. The Black Death which devastated Europe in the Middle Ages is only speculated to have been bubonic plague; in fact, no-one knows for sure what it is. And of course, the Apocalypse is the result of early Christians eating too much cheese before bedtime.




There are plenty of painting from the time showing the bubons on peoples skins, large black swellings that gave the condition its name, bubonic plague.

Cold keeps viruses in check......Is that a medical fact or personal truth you are putting forward as one. I think you might want to recheck the ways cold can keep viruses alive longer. Ebola would thrive in a cold climate.

The Little Ice Age coincides with the Great Famine, which coincides with the Black Death.

The Medieval Warm Period that happened prior to the Little Ice Age coincides with bountiful harvests and great wealth, which coincides with cathedral building.

Summary:

Cold = Bad
Warm = Good

The plague is spread by fleas not mosquitoes. You said resistant mosquitoes but the article says fleas. Most people these days don't have rats or fleas in their homes. The world is not Madagascar and Madagascar is not the world.
Not exactly something you need to worry about.

Antibiotics are not used for viruses. They have no effect on them.
They are effective against bubonic and pneumonic plague which are bacterial.
So if insecticides fail were still OK. This will never become what it did in the 1600s.

The plague is a bacterial infection not a virus.

Caused by the bacterial species yersinia pestis.

Its true that plague was certainly circulating at the time.

The queation is though if another infection was happening at the same time.

Symptoms and death rates were not always consistant with typical yersinia pestis.

The BLACK PLAGUE has returned! We are living in the time(s) of the virus; this past year (2014) there has been an explosion in the intensity and the spread of viruses and I think this year (2015) will be even worse. I think this increase of viruses has to do with the warming environment because as you all know, cold weather keeps viruses in check. It's not looking too good, ATS.


But the plague is a bacteria not a virus...

I would not treat anti biotics as a magic fool proof cure.

You have to still get the treatment early.

Especialy if you have the pnemonic version. You very quickly get past a point of no return with that,

Strangely, Madagascar is not so much my bugaboo in Plague Inc. It's that freakin' Greenland! They stop taking ships before I can infect Russia and spread it to them every time. Of course, it's been a while since I've fired up the game. They may have added updates since then.

Sarcasm or Serious?

These kind of stories are used to control the sale of antimicrobial soap and hand sanitizer.


How does hand sanitiser stop you getting bitten by a mosquito or flea?

Am I missing something here?

I'm willing to take my chances. I wouldn't be looking for the death carts or mass graves just yet.
